But, what if you are one of those people who think Memory Foam Pillows are a little too stiff, but you still want the benefits of less pressure on the head and good support for the neck? Well, one of the best alternatives is a buckwheat hull pillow. Buckwheat pillows are filled with a whole lot of hard, little buckwheat husks. They are a little like flattened beans and they move and slide around as you adjust the pillow to your liking. What they do provide is a variable and adjustable shape that allows your head and neck to be most comfortable. Technically, a buckwheat pillow would benefit all three sleeping styles because of the adjustability factor. There is also a zippered opening that allows one to add or remove fill based on your size or personal comfort.
Due to geese people have also discovered another type which are filled with their feathers. A feather pillow is rather nice, but it's firmer than a down one. Feather pillows may last for a few years if they are correctly cared for. Such pillows should not be washed in a washing machine as the filling will clump and the pillow will be uncomfortable for the further usage.
Just as there is a wide range of pillow types (there are wedge pillows, neck support pillows and body pillows to help sleepers with physical problems, and feather pillows, water-based pillows, decorative floor pillows and kids novelty pillows) so we have an endlessly delightful range of pillow fabrics. My wife has some of these in a couple of our bedrooms and they look really good.
The human neck curves slightly forward (to sustain the weight of the head upright), and it is very important to maintain this curve when in a resting position. If the height of the pillow is too high to sleep on their side or back, the neck is bent abnormally forward or to the side, causing muscle strain in the back of the neck and shoulders. This type of position may also cause narrowing of the air pipe, resulting in obstructed breathing, and sometimes snoring, which can hinder sleep. On the contrary, if the height of the pillow is too low, the neck muscles can also be enforced.
Many people may not realize that there are so many choices when it comes to deciding what to lay their head on at night. Each different type of pillow offers unique benefits. Selecting the right pillow for you may help you sleep better at night and allow you to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Knowing the various pillow options that exist along with your preferred sleeping style, will help you make and informed choice to get the best sleep each night.
Using a pillow while sleeping on your side. When lying on one side, the pillow should support the head and neck so that the natural spine has a straight horizontal line. The weight should be distributed evenly so as not to create natural bending or pressure.Some people prefer to place a small pillow or rolled towel under their waist while lying on the side for extra support.
