Thursday, August 7, 2008

One third of your life is spent in bed. Shouldn't the pillow you use help you enjoy that time instead of leaving you achy and restless? Here are some tips to finding the perfect pillow- which can lead to healthy, restful and comfortable night of sleep.

Determine your pillow style. The position you sleep in says a lot about the type of support you need in pillow. Stomach sleepers need a soft pillow with little elevetion, back sleepers need a medium pillow with moderate elevation and side sleepers need a firmer pillow with maximum elevation. When purchasing pillow, keep in mind how you sleep to determine what type of pillow to sleep with.

Keep it fresh. Pillows should be replaced every two years to ensure proper health and support. Lumpy or flat pillows are a good indication that pillow has reached the end it life span.

Beware of a pillow past time prime. Even your pillow is not flat or lumpy, do not wait for more than two years to replace it. A pillow past its prime could contain a high level of dust and mites, which increase breathing disorder, asthma, allergies. The older the pillow the more it contribute to sleep deprivation and body aches as well.

Take the rest. One good way to determine if your pillow might need replacing is the following test. Take your pillow and fold them in half. Place a tennis shoe on the pillow. If the pillow trows the shoe off of it, still has some life. If the pillow just sits there with the shoe on top, it's time to purchase a new pillow.
