Good: Sleeping On The Back

  • Prevents Neck and Back Pain: By maintaining a neutral position for the head, neck and spine.
  • Reduces Acid Reflux: By keeping your head elevated above your stomach.
  • Minimizes Wrinkles: As nothing pushes against your face.

Bad for: Snoring

Your Perfect Pillow:

1 puffy one. To keep your head and neck supported without propping your head up too much.

OK: Sleeping On The Side

  • Reduces Snoring: By elongating your spine.
  • Reduces Acid Relux: By keeping your head elevated above your stomach.
  • Useful During Pregnancy: Sleeping on the left side is ideal for blood flow.

Bad for: Face and Breasts

Constant mushing of face from one side, and sagging of breasts is prominent.

Your Perfect Pillow:

1 think one. To fill the space above your shoulder so your head and neck are supported in a neutral position.

BAD: Fetal Position

*Try Not To Curve Your Back Too Much*

  • Increases Arthritic Pain: Knees are bent for a long time during the night, bad neck and spine posture.
  • Restricts Diaphragmatic Breathing
  • Premature Facial Wrinkles: Too much stress on the face and breasts.
  • Also, Useful During Pregnancy

Your Perfect Pillow:

1 thick one. To fill the space above your shoulder so your head and neck are supported in a neutral position.

AVOID: Sleeping On The Stomach

  • Difficult To Maintain A Neutral Spine Position
  • Puts Pressure On Joints and Muscles: Which can irritate nerves and lead to pain, numbness and tingling.
  • Constant Incorrect Head Position May Lead To Aching: Keeping the face down keeps your upper airways more open. So if you snore and aren't suffering from the neck or back pain, it's fine to try sleeping on your belly.

Your Perfect Pillow:

Either a 1 thin one or none at all.
