Your pillow. You use it daily. In fact, you use your pillow roughly one third of the day. Considering how often you use this sleeping accessory, have you ever given thought to how long you have had it? Do you even remember? If you have no idea how old your pillow is, rest assured, you are not alone.
The problem with old pillows is that over time they lose their structure and lead to neck pain. A pillow that's too soft or too firm often leads to restless sleep. Additionally, pillows often harbor allergy-inducing dust mites, which affect your health...yuck.
Did you know that a “healthy” pillow should be able to be folded in half and when released pop right back to its normal state? If your pillow doesn’t do this, it is time to think about getting a new one. You will find that a new pillow will provide better sleep quality, and less pain. The Double Airflow memory foam pillow features an air-infused memory foam with multiple levels of ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep. The core of this pillow has been scientifically designed with visco foam and air channels while the ventilated mesh trim allows air to flow freely so your head stays cooler. This pillow also helps eliminate nervous tension caused by common head, neck, and shoulder pain. Better sleep can be achieved for less than $50.
Now let’s talk about allergies. Your pillow can attract a large number of dust mites if it isn't being cleaned and replaced enough. Gross, right? Do not fear! There are options for those with allergies. The GelBasics memory foam pillow is hypoallergenic and dust mite-resistant. Allergy sufferers no longer need to compromise comfort! This easy-to-care-for pillow is your first step towards allergy-free and pain-free rest. Imagine waking up without wheezing or a headache. It is possible.
It is understandable that you may have become attached to your pillow both emotionally and physically. The idea of letting your dear friend go may even seem unbearable. It won’t be until you get a full restful night’s sleep with a new pillow that you will realize it is time to kick your old pillow to the curb. Again, give some thought to how long you have had your current pillow...if you can remember.
