Your Well Being and your Pillow

 As I've mentioned, we take our pillow for granted.  It's just there.  It just lays there.  It doesn't really do anything.  Or does it.  Can it be said that by not doing anything, it does everything we need it to?  A pillow certainly doesn't deserve overthinking.  But your choice of pillow does deserve some consideration.  If your pillow doesn't work for you, it deserves the same consideration as anything else that doesn't serve you.


A pillow can affect your well-being by providing support for your neck and head while you sleep, helping to maintain the natural curvature of your spine and reduce pain or discomfort. Additionally, a pillow that is comfortable and supportive can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, leading to better overall sleep quality and improved mental and physical health. On the other hand, an uncomfortable or poorly supportive pillow can lead to discomfort, restlessness, and poor sleep quality, which can negatively impact your well-being.

All that being said, sometimes I just like to sleep without a pillow.  To be honest, I'd probably sleep better, more, if I didn't use a pillow.  But my pillow is comfortable.  Whether it's my standard pillow or the one that I made, it's comfortable and serves it's purpose.  But when my neck is stiff and if after a few nights the stiffness hasn't subsided, I'll just loose the pillow for a few nights and I find the discomfort goes away.  Not because of the pillow, but because of "not" the pillow.  Got that?  Give it a try and see you you feel.
