Many people suffer from this issue and feel the pain at times because the pillow is uncomfortable and therefore they do not have a comfortable and good sleep. Sleeping on the wrong pillow will increase the feeling of neck and shoulder pain, and cause an increase in the feeling of numbness in the hands at times and even snoring. To rid you of this pain and suffering and to help you choose the perfect pillow for sleeping, we offer you the most important things that must be taken into account when purchasing a pillow:Choose the pillow that fits your preferred sleeping position:1- If you are a back sleeper, the pillow you choose must be of medium thickness, so that the head is not too high or at the level of the mattress.2- If your favorite sleeping position is on your stomach, it is possible to choose a thin pillow, or even sleep without the presence of this pillow, so that your head is at an appropriate level with the spine, but it is preferable in this position to place a pillow under your stomach to avoid back pain.3- If you prefer to sleep on your side, then you need a pillow that supports your head and fills the space between your ear and your shoulder, meaning that the pillow should be more firm.4- If you sleep in different positions during the night and fluctuate a lot, you should choose a medium-thick, slightly soft pillow to fit all of these positions. It is preferable to have more than one pillow per person with different fillings, in order to meet the purpose on this night, and these fillings include:1- Latex pillow, which is one of the hardest types of pillows, fights mold and dust mites. This type of pillow helps support the neck, by aligning it with the back.2- Cotton and wool pad: which is low in sensitivity and resistant to mold and dust mites, and it is somewhat hard.3- Feather pillow: which is recommended by most specialists, as you can fill this pillow by controlling it to support your neck in the most appropriate way for your position, in addition to the softness it provides.4- Sponge pillow: This pillow supports the head in an appropriate way, and there are different shapes that make it easier for you to choose the most suitable for your sleeping position. You should not choose the most expensive pillow because you think it is the best, meaning knowing your need and what is most suitable for you is the most important in this process, not the most expensive. Try the pillow before buying it in the store, and it is preferable to place it on the wall and then put your head on it, considering the wall as the sleeping mat, and ask someone to make sure that your neck is parallel with your spine, in this case the pillow is suitable for you. Finally, you have to get rid of your pillow every 12-18 months approximately, and you can test this by folding the pillow in half, and if it is not the same before it was folded, this is a sign of the need to replace it with a new one, and do not forget to wash it and wash the pillow cover from time to time as well. Remember that the right sleeping pillow for you may not suit others, so do not consult them and rely on their opinion only, but listen to your body and your comfort.
