If not, your pillow could be the culprit! If you are waking up with a headache, neck pain or back pain you may be in need of a different pillow.
In order for you to get the best possible rest, and for your muscles to be at their most relaxed, it is important that you sleep on a pillow that is tailored to your dimensions and sleep position.
The best pillow for you is one that is the correct height and shape, will adapt to the contours of your neck, is comfortable soft and gives great support.
Pillows have lifespans?
The best pillow for you is also one that is less than two years old. Why less than two years? Because of the amount of body oil, skin cells, allergens and other less than cozy sounding things (like dust mites) that accumulate in pillows (which can cause health issues & allergic reactions). A 10oz pillow will double its weight in only 3 years due to this buildup!
*Be sure to wash your pillowcases weekly and your pillow every 3-6 months to reduce the amount of buildup and extend its lifespan.
