A good pillow
Don’t underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. Research shows that being well-rested will help you concentrate better during the day, improve your mood, reduce chronic pain and even boost your sex life.
If you’re waking up with neck, back, or shoulder pain, or if you find that your eyes are itchy or your nose is stuffy in the morning, your pillow may be to blame.
Depending on whether you sleep on your front, back or side, your pillow needs to support your head and respond to your neck position properly. You may even be allergic to your pillow’s stuffing material and not realize it.
Spending less than $100 on a high quality, hypo-allergenic pillow that supports your head and neck properly can help you achieve a deeper, more restful sleep. Given that you spend a third of your life in bed, upgrading to a good pillow can literally change your life.
