Using a pillow while sleeping on the back. When lying on his back, a pillow should support the natural curvature of the cervical spine, with adequate support in the head, neck and shoulders. While sleeping in the back, the height of the pillow should be lower than in the sideways position. Place a pillow or two beneath the knees further alleviates any back pain, and is softer position on the back.
The most common use of pillows that can be related to by most people is comfort. Without a doubt, the invention of pillows has greatly aided comfort. A pillow alone can be responsible for a sound sleep. When it comes to comfort, apart for sleeping, pillows may also be used to lean on when seated or lying down. Airplane neck pillow can also be instrumental when traveling. Sitting in the same spot for several hours can leave you drained out and cranky and having a pillow for travel can certainly alleviate some of the effects of a long journey.
Size is another area where the humble pillow is really far from uniform. There are body pillows and decorative floor pillows that are much bigger than the standard pillow at the end of your bed. Then, in the Middle East, in Egypt, long tube-like pillows are the norm. They are hard and narrow, reaching right across the width of the bed, and while they look inviting they are rock hard. Local people like them. You might be inclinded to have another opinion.
Well, each pillow type has its advantages and disadvantages; that is why you should consider your own requirements and needs while choosing.
I once knew a gentleman who slept on his back, without a pillow, on a long narrow wooden bench. (Did I also say it was hard!) But most of us are using pillows and buying them in fabrics and colors that match our bedding and bedroom decor.
If you have the right pillow under your head at night you will feel the best way during the day. Everybody knows that a person needs to have a healthy sleep in order to be in a good mood and health. But few of us know how to choose the correct type.
