You may change the pillowcase regularly but do you know that you should change your pillow regularly also? It’s because all pillows experience wear and tear, making it less comfortable over time. In general, your pillow will usually give you a few signs that your relationship is over.
Why you should replace your old pillow with a new one?
Here are the reasons:
Good bye allergens!
Our pillow is the perfect environment for dust mites and allergen to grow and multiply because they feed on our dead skin cells and thrive in a warm, humid atmosphere. Dust mites can be really dangerous, they are the no. 1 trigger of year-round asthma and allergy problems.
Why not just wash the pillowcase? Well, sweat, hair, saliva, body oil, and dead skin cells are so small, they can go through pillowcase and are absorbed by pillows. All these fluids and flakes may cause mold, mildew, and other allergens to accumulate and cause a bad odor.
No more neck-pain
Let’s try a small test, fold your pillow in half and see if it stays that way, if it does, then it’s time for a new one. But you don’t need to try this test if your neck is in pain every time you wake up, just listen to your body, they know the best for you!. Because just like a mattress, a pillow is supporting your neck, head, and keeping your spine neutral, so that you get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
Eventually, your pillow will flatten out and stop providing proper support to your head and neck, which makes you wake up in pain in those areas. A brand new pillow offers the greatest level of support and comfort. It keeps your spine aligned and helps you get a full night’s rest.
Better sleep = better day
An old pillow can be stressful, the allergen can make you cough and sneeze while less support in the neck can uncomfortably disturb your sleep at night, imagine going through that all night! (Let’s not talk about the fact that you will wake up with your neck and shoulder in pain).
Low quality sleep like this can make you wake up feeling tired, experience daytime sleepiness, affect your ability to think, remember, and process information. Did you know that sleep is 1/3 of human life?
