“My heart can feel the softness of a star
Only when the moon stays afar
I lay my mind on the pillow of sky
Where sleep dares not ever to pry”
― Munia Khan
Some say a pillow is your best friend during the night, and it never fails to catch your tears, bad dreams and deepest sorrows. I must agree, though not all pillows appear to do as such.
A personal favourite of mine are memory foam pillows, though I am certain that not everyone carry the same sentiments as me. There are a variety of pillows widely available on the market, from feather to buckwheat. As our needs evolve, increasingly popular pillows like contour pillows are taking the market by storm.
But did you know, that your pillow must be changed every 1 to 2 years for hygienic purposes? The amount of bacteria on these puppies are tremendous, considering the amount of time we spend with it daily.
Guilty? That’s alright, I’m guilty too. It’s not too late.
Spending money to buy a good pillow is something you should never scrimp and save on, considering the amount of time you spend with it daily. A good pillow will ensure you a good and painless day, and bring you little to no trouble at all. Spending a little bit more for better days to come, greater good right?With that, take a look at our top 3 recommendations for the next best pillow for you, because only you will pamper yourself, and trust me, you’re worth it.

Before you choose the right pillow, you should know how to pick YOUR perfect pillow.
How? Ask yourself this question.
What kind of sleeper am I?
Side? Back? Stomach?
For back sleepers, a perfect pillow would score a medium on the scale for firmness, and a memory foam pillow might do just the trick!
For side sleepers, a perfect pillow would score a high on the scale of firmness, for a sufficient level of support is needed in order to ensure your spine is well aligned, even throughout sleep. A down pillow may work perfectly!
For stomach sleepers, your perfect pillow would something soft, and score low on firmness. A perfect pillow would be filled with feathers, to ensure your back is not strained during your sleep.
