Are you sick of waking up each morning with constant neck or back pain? Can’t figure out why you’re so tired every day even though your coffee intake has almost doubled? It might be your pillow or mattress causing you trouble.
What is the current state of your pillow?
If your pillow is more than a few years old, it is definitely recommended that you upgrade it. There are so many different types of pillows available now. You can have a classic pillow shape, a contoured pillow, a memory foam pillow, a gel-infused memory foam pillow, latex pillows, etc. With such a variety available, you might want to set aside some time to try out the different shapes and feels. Just because you always slept on a classic shaped pillow, does not necessarily mean that the neck support you’re after will come from a classic pillow. Try something new and see what feels best. You might be surprised.
Have you checked your mattress lately?
Mattresses are a tricky thing because if you’ve had one for over 10 years, you’ve probably become accustomed to how it feels when you lay down on it. The problem with that is, that it might not be offering you the same amount of support it once did. It’s hard to let go of the idea that your mattress is not doing what it should be anymore because you love the feeling of climbing into the same bed after a long day. The good news is that it’s now easier than ever to find a new mattress that will support you for years to come. Remember that you are now 10 years older than you were when you bought your last one, so your preferences have probably changed a bit. Be a bit adventurous and try out a new feel of mattress, instead of the same feel you purchased previously. You might also want to try a combination of pillow top mattresses and some classic tight top designed mattresses. The key is to try as many as possible to understand the new level of support that you want from your mattress.
If you think it’s your mattress or pillow causing you trouble each night, take some time out of your busy schedule and shop for a new mattress and pillow. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results from simply updating your bedroom.
