Gratitude and Joy

Day 168 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Good Pillows

Ah, the joy of falling into your own bed after an exhausting day! The comfy sheets, the weight of the blankets just so, and, of course, the pillow that fits your head and sleeping style just right. Is there anything more blissful?

A bad pillow can leave you tossing and turning all night. (Photo courtesy:

We all know how important sleep is to our overall health, both for longevity and our daily well-being. A bad night’s sleep saps our energy and makes us cranky. We spend around a third of our time in bed, so we should try to make our sleep as efficient as possible.

To me, pillows are the most important part of that equation (although Judy might argue it’s all about the temperature of the room, but that could be a blog all on its own!). I’m a side-sleeper, so I need something firm enough to keep my head and neck straight, but not too firm!  I’ve tried down, memory foam, traditional, square, shaped and various combinations of those. Judy has similar struggles, but she likes much softer pillows than me. Buying pillows is a very personal thing for us … when we see something we like, we tend to buy it!

We will keep trying pillows until we find the perfect one.

The good news is that right now, I think I’ve found a pretty good one, bought a couple of months ago. Since purchasing it, I have been sleeping better and for longer lengths of time than before, and I generally wake up refreshed. It’s not perfect, however, so I’m still on the hunt.

Our pillows are well-tested.

There’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored. When you find the perfect pillow on your travels, make note and pick one up!
