  We all need sleep and most of us feel like we just can't get enough. But what happens when you do get the recommended seven to eight hours of shut eye per night, but still wake up tired or with neck and back pain?

  According to many reports, it might be time to check your pillow. There are three basic rules when it comes to finding the right one.  

he rule of thumb when you're purchasing a pillow is you want something that contours to your neck, So here's the contoured foam or memory foam pillows, something that's cool, so you could use the latex material or something called cooling gel memory foam pillow, and something that has some variability.  


  Most pillows only last about two to three years before they need to be replaced. There often the challenge lies in the fact that when it comes to finding the right one, it's not one-size fits all. The main goal, if you are a side or back sleeper, is to have the pillow fill the space between your shoulders and your head. If you sleep on your stomach, you will need a flatter pillow. A pain-free morning after a good night's rest all comes down to keeping the spine aligned. Even if you pick the right pillow, if you're sleeping wrong, the pillow isn't going to do you much goodWhen you're sleeping, you don't also want to have bad posture. So the pillow helps you have correct posture, learning how to sleep properly helps you have the right posture, and to almost undo everything you've been doing all day.

  Most research supports side-sleeping as the ideal way to get a good night's rest. He says that if you're a side sleeper and notice pain on one side, but not the other, try sleeping on the other side of the bed for a while.
