A painless night of sleep is very important for a good and energetic day. In this sense, the pillow you use to support your neck and head plays an extremely important role, especially if you suffer from back or neck pain or if you have apnea and insomnias.
Given that each sleeping position requires a different type of pillow to maintain a healthy posture, we made a list of the most common positions and the perfect pillow for each.
1. The side sleeper
The side sleepers need to look for a pillow that will comfortably support the head, neck, ear and shoulder. You should also consider placing a pillow between your knees or thighs to help maintain spinal alignment while you sleep.
We suggest Colunex Fresh Green pillow. This pillow guarantees a correctly-aligned spine and helps to prevent neck strains, spasms and skeletomuscular discomfort. Additionally, this model is consistent and adaptable, properly supporting the weight of the head while simultaneously accommodating the contours of the neck. Thanks to the Aloe Vera extract, this pillow is extremely fresh and hypoallergenic.
2. The back sleeper
The ideal pillow for back sleepers is a pillow medium in size and in firmness. For these sleepers, the pillow should be filled with materials that react to pressure like memory foam.
3. The stomach sleeper
It is very difficult to find the perfect pillow for stomach sleepers. In fact, many experts suggest avoiding this position because it’s not good for the spine, you can hurt your neck and you put too much pressure on your lower back. That being said, we advise you to try sleeping in another position but if you always end up on your stomach, the perfect pillow is a short and soft one.
4. Always changing
For some, it is difficult or even impossible to know what is their position because they are always changing and never wake up in the same way. In these cases, the best pillow is a versatile one. The Sleep Journey suggests the Ortho-Shape pillow by Colunex. Its anatomical shape, with two distinct thicknesses, ensures the pillow suits any sleeping position. It provides two excellent supports for your neck whether you are lying on your side or on your back.
5. The Sleepers with health problems
Back pain, sprains, insomnias, apnea and breath problems are a reality nowadays, either from stress, wrong working posture or bad habits. Nonetheless, a restful sleep can help solve part of the issues. To do so, it is very important to choose a pillow that can help us sleep with a good posture and with the right materials for a healthy sleep.
