Is Your Pillow Impacting Your Health? Here's How to Tell
You might have neck pain.
If you keep your head bent for a long time, like when you sleep, it can cause discomfort. And depending on your sleeping position, it also matters how firm your pillow is. Because if it's too soft or too firm for you, it can cause neck pain. For example, if you sleep on your side, you should pick a firmer pillow to provide enough support for your neck so that it doesn't bend to the side too much. If you sleep on your stomach, it's better to go for a softer pillow, otherwise, the pillow will push your head back, creating a curve in your neck. And if you sleep on your back, a firm pillow won't be a good choice for you as it might also create misalignment by pushing your neck too far forward.
