These are few of several other uses of pillows. You might find several individual uses of them. If you are not tall enough for a chair for instance, you may use a pillow to rest on and seat yourself to an appropriate height for example.
Based on body measurements and personal preference, the pillow should maintain a height of 4 to 6 inches, properly supporting the head and neck (and shoulders when lying on your back).
The human neck curves slightly forward (to sustain the weight of the head upright), and it is very important to maintain this curve when in a resting position. If the height of the pillow is too high to sleep on their side or back, the neck is bent abnormally forward or to the side, causing muscle strain in the back of the neck and shoulders. This type of position may also cause narrowing of the air pipe, resulting in obstructed breathing, and sometimes snoring, which can hinder sleep. On the contrary, if the height of the pillow is too low, the neck muscles can also be enforced.
Using a pillow while sleeping on your stomach. If sleeping or resting in the stomach is preferred, the pillow should be relatively flat, or the head should rest directly on the mattress, so that the head and neck are not artificially activated on both sides. In this position, it is often best to place another relatively flat pillow in the stomach to help keep the spine in natural alignment.
Well, each pillow type has its advantages and disadvantages; that is why you should consider your own requirements and needs while choosing.
Size is another area where the humble pillow is really far from uniform. There are body pillows and decorative floor pillows that are much bigger than the standard pillow at the end of your bed. Then, in the Middle East, in Egypt, long tube-like pillows are the norm. They are hard and narrow, reaching right across the width of the bed, and while they look inviting they are rock hard. Local people like them. You might be inclinded to have another opinion.
