Selecting the Right Memory Foam Pillow

A good night’s sleep can be the difference between a day with energy and a day where you can barely manage to keep your eyes open. It can be the foundation for a good day rather than a bad one. It can even be the difference between a good mood and a day spent down in the dumps. That is why your pillow is so important. The right pillow can send you quickly into a blissful night’s sleep, while the wrong one can keep you tossing and turning all night long and waking up with a major crick in your neck. Memory foam pillows are extremely popular for their conforming abilities, cooling properties, and a particular knack for helping you get comfy. But not all memory pillows are the same. Here is a quick guide to selecting the perfect memory foam pillow for you (or someone you love!)

Sleep Position

The first criterion in the hunt for the perfect pillow is your sleep position. How you sleep makes a huge difference in the firmness, thickness, and shape you need from your pillow. If you are a back sleeper, your pillow needs to support your entire head, neck, and shoulder area. It should also be relatively flat so that your spine can rest in a natural position. The contour gel-infused memory foam pillow is specially designed for back sleepers with its ergonomic contour which will properly align your spine.

If you are a stomach sleeper, you probably already know that this position is the most difficult one to maintain proper spinal alignment. The most important step you can take to avoid damage to the spine as a stomach sleeper is to use a firm mattress and sleep on a flat pillow–or none at all.

Side sleepers need a thicker pillow that supports both the head and neck while maintaining a neutral position for the shoulders. Some side sleepers find that a foam pillow with a shoulder cut-out works perfectly for them. One example is the AA-blue ice curve memory foam pillow.

Sleeping Temperature

There are ample studies to prove that staying cool is a key element to a good night’s sleep. If you tend to sleep hot your pillow can help cool you down, allowing you the good night’s sleep that has probably been eluding you. The AA-blue ice gel memory foam pillow is a top seller that will help you keep your cool at night for under a hundred bucks. Or, take your coolness to the next level with the CarbonCool omniphase pillow. With graphite-infused memory foam and ample ventilation, this superior pillow uses the most advanced pillow-cooling technology there is.

Size of Bed

Of course, another consideration when selecting your next memory foam pillow is the size of your bed. For twin beds, consider using a standard-sized pillow. As your bed size moves up, so do pillow sizes. There are both queen and king-sized pillows available in a wide variety of selections. Choosing the correct size of pillows for your bed ensures that the space is properly filled.

Infusing Active Ingredients

While comfort is paramount for today’s pillows, the advantages don’t stop there. You can make your pillow work for you with an infusion of a variety of active ingredients. For example, if you struggle to shut your mind down for the night, you can get a lavender-infused pillow that will help you relax and unwind. Chamomile-infused pillows are also designed to offer natural relaxation for better sleep. Peppermint-infused pillows are perfect for people who struggle with allergies or other respiratory issues. They can also reduce stress and soothe tension headaches. Activated charcoal-infused pillows fight odors, remove excess moisture, and regulate your temperature–helping you to stay asleep all night long.

Make your next pillow a memory foam pillow! No other kind of pillow can be specified to so many individual needs. These pillows can easily be infused with active ingredients that suit your specific issues, and no other pillow will last as long. Many of our memory foam pillows come with a 5-year warranty. Give the gift of a good night’s rest to yourself or a loved one. These pillows make excellent Christmas presents.
