The Importance Of A Comfortable Pillow

Aug 17, 2007
Getting a good night's sleep is perhaps the most important thing you can do for your body. It gives your body a chance to heal itself from the stresses of the day, the physical posturing and the normal wear and tear on your body. Below is a list of pillows that can help you to repair your body and get the rest you really need. You will find that with the right pillow you will wake up feeling more energized and well rested, ready to take on the day. Be sure you pick the pillow that fits you and will suit your needs. Keep in mind that what works well for one person (such as a flat pillow) may not work well for another (who needs a fluffy pillow).

Neck Pillows - people with neck and back pain can benefit greatly with the use of a neck pillow. These pillows are shaped to cradle the head and neck in its natural shape, allowing for the body to rest as it should.

Knee Pillows - These types of pillows are especially helpful for those who suffer from lower back pain as they help to alleviate the stress and strain on the back.

Body Pillows - These are really great for women who are pregnant and for people who like to sleep on their side. This pillow gives great support of the stomach area allowing for a comfortable nights rest. Try not to put your top leg over the pillow when you are sleeping on your side as this can cause problems with the lower lumbar and thoracic spine area.

Support pillow for the lower back - This is a great pillow that will help nicely for the inward curve of the lumbar spine. This is great for those who work in an office, when they have to sit at a desk for long periods of time. This is also great for when you are driving in a car.

Travel pillows - These are U shaped pillows that fit perfectly around your neck. These are great for sleeping while travelling, when it is not possible to lay down to rest, such as flying on a plane, riding on a bus or perhaps a car. It will hold the head in an upright position rather than letting it fall to the side which can cause a stiff neck and take away from the quality of sleep you are getting.

Donut pillows - This is a pillow that is just like its name. It is shaped like a donut and they are great for placing on the seat of a chair. This type of pillow takes away the pressure from the tailbone for people who have had surgery or an injury in that area, allowing them to sit without putting pressure on that body part.
