Sleep is everyone's top priority, and the most directly related thing to sleep is the pillow.
If you wake up every morning and find that your neck is tight and sore, it is obvious that there is something wrong with your pillow.
So how do we choose a pillow that suits your height and material?
First of all, we should know that although the pillow is called a pillow, the pillow is actually the "neck" part.
In the industry, we will have a formula to test your pillow to see if it is in line with your height.
Suitable pillow height = (shoulder width head width) × 2. That is to say, when lying on the back, if the lowest part of the chin is facing upward, it means that the pillow is too low; if the chin is pressed down, it means that the pillow is too high; if the chin remains level, it is the comfortable and correct height of the pillow.
Of course, it is possible to get used to sleeping in other positions. If you are used to lying on your back, the height of the pillow should be 8 ~ 13cm, about the height of a fist. You can also put a pillow under your knee to relieve pressure on your spine.
If you are used to lying on your side, the height of the pillow should be equal to the width of your shoulder, that is, 13 ~ 16 cm, so that the cervical spine and lumbar spine are almost in the same horizontal line.
Speaking of the height, we are talking about the material, in the material we recommend these three.
Buckwheat pillow: existence has its own reason
Buckwheat shell is used as pillow core, which is a kind of traditional pillow. Using buckwheat husk, mung bean husk, millet, silkworm excrement and so on as fillings in the pillow core can prevent cervical spondylosis to a certain extent. What kind of pillow is good? Buckwheat shell is light in weight and has a tough and unbreakable rhombic structure. As the pillow core, it can change its shape with the head moving, and it is warm in winter and cool in summer, which has the effect of clearing away heat and dispelling fire. But the disadvantage is not suitable for cleaning, it is best to dry in the sun regularly.
Latex pillow: good except for the price
The juice is extracted from natural oak and then foamed at high temperature. The texture is soft and comfortable, with good elasticity and is not easy to change. Therefore, the supporting force of human cervical spine is relatively improved. The surface of the latex pillow has more than 3000 pores, which looks like sponge cake. The material features good antibacterial property, long service life, not easy to deform, strong support and easy cleaning, but the price is relatively expensive. Natural latex is extracted from oak milk without any infectious substances. It is mild and close to the skin. Its unique fragrance can catalyze human sleep factors. It is one of the most natural sleep materials. What kind of pillow is good? I think latex pillow is the most suitable one. The price is a little expensive.
Memory pillow: the most comfortable pillow
