Did you know that pillows can impact on the quality of your sleep and rest.

The wrong pillow can worsen headaches, neck pain, shoulder and arm numbness, discomfort, sneezing and even wheezing.

Another problem is that if your pillow is old then it could contain skin cells, mould, mildew, fungus
and dust mites etc.

The rule of thumb is that you should buy a pillow every 12 – 18 months.

Having your neck in the right position is the key to being comfortable at night. Also, making sure that you can sleep on your side and back is also important. 

How to choose the right neck pillow for sleep.
