A pillow is just a pillow, right? Well, not quite. Just like your mattress is a big part of getting a good night’s sleep, the type of pillow you choose will make a huge difference in your quality of sleep, along with your general health and wellbeing.
The benefit of finding not just a good pillow, but the right pillow for you, can transform your sleep, resolve joint and muscular pain, improve your spine health, help with allergies and so much more. If you’re ready to experience the benefits of a good pillow, check out our top 5 reasons why it’s worth the investment.
Probably the most crucial reason to invest in a quality pillow is to give your body the support it needs. We think a lot about maintaining good posture at our desks and during the day, but the position we sleep in is also a crucial part of supporting your spinal column. And a good night’s sleep starts with a good pillow.
There isn’t one ‘right’ size and shape for a pillow to be – these factors will vary depending on your height, your body shape and the position you sleep in. A high quality pillow will be adapted to your body, with the right height and firmness to hold your neck in a neutral, straight position in relation to your spine. If you’ve been taking an ‘anything goes’ approach to your pillow, you’ll be blown away by how refreshing a night’s sleep can be when your neck is supported in the right position – and you may even find that your back pain and neck stiffness disappear too!
We often talk about sleep in terms of quantity. How many hours are you getting each night? Obviously, this is an important part of the equation, but the quality of sleep you’re getting is also important. Our sleeping hours move in cycles, and we need to get deep, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep in order to rest, recuperate and feel refreshed.
If your body isn’t in a comfortable and supported position, you may toss and turn during the night, and never get into that all important deeper sleep cycle that makes the difference between waking up feeling fresh and invigorated and pressing the snooze button 8 times before dragging yourself out of bed. Another benefit of a good pillow that feels just right is that you might also find it easier to drift off to sleep in the first place.
Speaking of investments lasting, this is another benefit of a good pillow which can’t be overlooked. A cheaper alternative might seem like a more attractive proposition in the short term, but from a sustainability and durability point of view, a well-made pillow is going to save you money and save your environmental impact. High quality materials and superior construction will always win out on a longer timeline, and actually work out as the more economical option that also supports your wellbeing.
A quality made luxury pillow will also maintain its comfort and support throughout its lifetime, rather than getting thin or lumpy after extended use, which can start to cause you pain and discomfort as you sleep. Having a great pillow that will last you for years to come? That’s a big tick for you and the environment.
As we’ve hinted at, no two people sleep in an identical way – and that’s fine! The sleep position that feels comfortable and natural to you isn’t a problem, but cheap pillows which don't cater to your individual sleep preferences can end up causing long term pain and discomfort – not ideal when we’re relying on our sleep for rest and healing from the physical demands of the day.
Whether you sleep on your front, your side, your back or you move around during the night, you’ll need different things from your pillow. You might even need a firm pillow with a high profile or a soft malleable pillow.
