It sounds like its accepted everyday reality of our busy lives. Of course, there are occasional spurs of us pursuing better sleep through interesting methods suggested by our friends or the latest articles. Yet, we are all creatures of habits but somehow the bad ones stick much better than good ones.
So, If you are anything like me, getting new sleeping habits can be slow, I mean a really slow process. This is the reason why I started looking into a passive way of increasing the quality of my sleep. Yes, we all think about a suitable mattress but they are big, and often an expensive item that can quickly quench our wallet of better sleep. But what is often overlooked is the need for a good pillow.
A good pillow will not only enhance the quality of your night sleep but it can also prevent future injuries. Unsure what I mean? Read on.
Having the incorrect pillow may lead to chronic neck pain, shoulder pain and also headaches. We spend around a third of our lives sleeping, so having the correct pillow is essential for a healthy spine.
So when looking for a pillow there are three main things
A pillow that will help keep the spine in a neutral position
A pillow that has support for the head, neck and shoulders
And a pillow that is comfortable
Why this pillow?
The Complete Sleeper is sold and recommended by many Australian Chiropractors and other allied health care professionals. Complete Sleeper is Australian made and owned and widely regarded for its high quality.
The Complete Sleeper has a specific contour in the middle of the pillow that will help maintain the natural curve or lordosis of the neck. As it cradles the head, this will help support the head in the right height. We don't want your head to be too low, as it may jam the cervico-thoracic spine or too high, where it will stretch the soft tissues on the shoulders and neck. The memory foam pillow helps mould the shape of your head to make it feel comfortable. This pillow is ideal for those people who sleep on their side or back.
Also, this pillow has a higher side and lower side to suit your shoulder size. What makes this pillow special is that it has removable inserts in the middle of the pillow. This allows you to adjust the height in different ways. So to help with good night sleep, this pillow that will help keep your spine in a neutral position, that is soft and supportive - it might even make you dream better. ;)
