Maybe you’re not the type who really mind what kind of pillow he sleeps on for as long as you have decent bed. Or perhaps you just don’t know some health benefits you get on choosing the right pillow for your body’s needs. Either way, you must read this article and get convinced why you should start considering a brand new kind of pillow.
Pretty normal to be ignorant about choosing the right pillow to sleep on. No one taught us in school anyway on how pillows can actually have good or bad effect on our muscles, our posture, and even our spine.
Alexis from Singapore opted to use a memory pillow when she noticed that her shoulder and upper back are always feeling hard, tight, and strained whenever she’s about to sleep, “I was advised by my doctor to find a memory pillow because I used to have those ultra-packed, hard pillows in my bed. It seemed like the old pillows are too stiff and my body cannot take the pressure that these old pillows bring.”
And it seems like not only Alexis had to suffer from such condition. A lot of us are still oblivious and unaware of the ill effects of a non-ergonomic pillow. And this is the perfect time to purchase a memory pillow and be kind to your body. “Do you suffer from headaches, neck or back pain? This is typically caused by poor spinal alignment. The main health benefits of sleeping on memory foam pillows is spinal alignment. As you lay your head and neck on the pillow, the weight and warmth of the body allow the foam to reshape itself. This forces the pillow to give greater resistance under the heaviest parts of the head, and equally support the lighter, more pressure sensitive neck area. Proper spinal alignment helps reduce tossing, turning and discomfort. It allows your muscles to relax properly offering natural spinal support to your body, adjusting to your unique shape promoting a deep restful sleep,” wrote Monique London in the article titled Top 5 Health Benefits Provided by Sleeping on Memory Foam Pillows as posted at islandslumber.com. The article went on to say, “Memory Foam is designed to contour to the unique shape of your body to help support your head and neck. They provide even support for the neck and head. The foam reforms less where it does not need to, and more where the stress is increased. This allows for uniform pressure on all areas of the head and neck, eliminating pressure points.”
And apparently, a regular pillow cannot give the same support and comfort that a memory pillow can offer. Chris, a nurse, is very particular with pillows in Singapore she buys, “A normal pillow may seem the same with a memory pillow, but there sure is a subtle but critical difference. Memory pillows are not flat—often, the left side is higher than the right. That contour alone makes all the difference, and you will know it when you try one.”
Another surprising but great benefit of using a memory pillow is that it can actually help with one’s snoring problems, “Regular pillows aggravate your snoring problem by forcing your neck and trunk to adapt to a position that restricts your air passages. Memory foam pillows, on the other hand, allow your body to take its most natural posture when you are asleep. This means that you will get enough supply of air, and sleep soundlessly. This was another unexpected benefit for me. As someone who suffers from asthma, breathing at night can become very difficult. I was pleasantly surprised to feel that since my neck was more relaxed, my breathing felt much more natural. I highly recommend a memory foam pillow for asthma sufferers, since I could definitely feel the difference myself,” wrote Adam Kemp in the article Best Memory Foam Pillow Benefits and Reasons to Purchase posted at adamkempfitness.com.
