Why Millennials Should Care About Having the Right Pillow

When we’re young, we often throw caution to the wind and ignore our health. One area in particular that we completely forget about is sleep. Getting a few hours of sleep here and there seems like enough to stay healthy. However, the amount of and the way we sleep has a direct impact on our health for years to come.

Young people need a comfortable and supportive pillow to prevent head, neck and shoulder pain and problems. There are two purposes to using a pillow: comfort and support. It’s up to both young and old alike to select a pillow that provides the support you need to be comfortable.

Why Millennials Should Care About Having the Right Pillow

Choosing a pillow that is right for you is a tricky process. There are, however, a few important tips you can use to maximize your selection and improve your health along the way. Consider the following to learn more.

Side Sleepers: A comfortable pillow that supports your neck and space between your head and shoulder is the best. Look for a soft or medium pillow (depending on your comfort level). Side sleepers may benefit from sleeping with a Boudoir or Throw Pillow between their knees – it supports the spine alignment.

Back Sleepers: A durable and shapeable pillow that molds to the neck’s curve that has consistent support is highly recommended. Look for a medium or firm pillow. A Knee Pillow under your knees can help your lower back.

Stomach Sleepers: Frankly, your sleeping style is not suggested as it puts stress on your lower back, and it may create neck pain. Stomach sleepers may try a Body Pillow to give them a better night’s sleep.
