Getting a Good Night's Sleep Can be a hard thing to acheive. For starters, you have to be able to fall asleep, then stay asleep and then wake up feeling rested.
One of the components of getting good sleep is knowing I am sleeping with the right pillow. How do you know you have a good pillow. Well here are some criteria.
- You can sleep on your side comfortably
- You can sleep on your back comfortably
- You don't wake up in pain
- You can move around easily during the night time
- You don't have pain while you are laying on your pillow
- You feel like your neck is being supported while laying on your bed
- A good pillow will help to relieve any type of neck pain you may have
If you suffer from pain due to a pinched nerve, a bulging disc or a herniated disc, arthritis or degeneration - you may have to test out a few pillows to figure out what is going to work for you. This can be a painful process.
Also a different pillow may be "right" for you at a different time in your life. For example, let say you just had a fusion neck surgery. Well, the pillow you normally use may not suffice. Using a pillow that conforms to your head and neck may be a better choice for you. Perhaps something made of memory foam.
For me, personally having the right pillow is key to getting a good night of sleep. I know that when i am away from my house, my sleep suffers. So does not my neck. I try not to leave home with my "GOOD" pillow these days. Its just not worth it.
