The Importance Of (And Impossibility To Find) A Good Pillow
Waking up with a crick in your neck is arguably one of the worst feelings in the world.
It seems to be happening to me more and more…and after some investigative work…I think I found the problem. Except now I have a bigger one!
After noting that part of the problem was due to one too many nights sleeping on a friend’s couch and the other part was because of bad form during my new hobby…it’s come down to it. It’s gotta be my pillows.
I bought new ones a few months ago, went to a discount department store that I had a 30% off coupon for…wound up spending maybe $10 bucks total on the pillows.
Well, my neck would argue there’s a reason they were only 10 bucks!
So I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of pillow to buy. They range in price from $5-$135. ($135. For a pillow!! Seriously??)
But maybe the pricier ones are worth it?
And the choices! Are you side-sleeper, a back-sleeper, or a stomach-sleeper? (Well, sometimes I fall asleep on my side, then I switch to the other side, then I turn on my back, then I go back to the side, so by the time I ACTUALLY fall asleep, who knows??)
Do you want down? Synthetic fill? Latex? Specialty pillows? It’s enough to make you crazy.
You know what I want? A reasonably priced pillow that will allow me to wake up without my neck hurting.
Is that really so much to ask??
Anyone have any suggestions? PLEASE share them below!!
