We all have that friend. You know, the one that travels with her pillow. For the longest time I couldn’t understand this phenomenon. Toothbrush, absolutely. Deodorant, yes. But pillow? Why?
Then it happened…I found my perfect pillow. This may sound crazy, but I swear to you that I could sleep comfortably on the floor with this thing. It literally changed the way I sleep and improved how I feel when I wake up. Needless to say, my pillow goes everywhere I go nowadays.
The truth of the matter is that your pillow actually makes up 30-45% of your overall sleep comfort. You can have the most comfortable mattress in the world, but if you’re not getting the right head and neck support, you won’t sleep comfortably.
So, the question is, with all of the options and specialty pillow materials on the market today, how do you go about finding the right pillow for you? Here are a few helpful hints for those of you on the hunt for the perfect night’s sleep:
1. Comfort testing is important.
Pillows are a key piece of the sleep comfort puzzle, so it’s time to give them the thought and consideration they deserve. Since testing a pillow before you take it home is a no-brainer, it’s time to find a sleep retailer that can walk you through the pillow selection process and help fit you to your perfect pillow.
2. Stop shopping for pillows based on your sleep position.
This old-school method of pillow fitting only allows you to comfort test a select segment of pillows. A new mattress and pillow combination will change how your body is supported throughout the night and will affect what positions you fall asleep and wake up in.
3. Demand more than just comfort from your pillow.
If you’re waking up with dark circles under your eyes even after a great night’s sleep, allergens are most likely the culprit. All of PureCare’s pillows feature an antimicrobial treatment that helps neutralize allergenic matter from dust mites and pet dander. Or maybe sleeping hot is keeping you from a great night’s sleep. Our SUB-0° hybrid pillows feature FRíO rapid chill cooling fiber covers that will help you find relief from sleep heat.
So, go ahead and fall in love with your pillow this Valentine’s Day. Visit PureCare.com today to find a sleep retailer near you.
