The benefits of a good night’s sleep cannot be over emphasized. An aging and uncomfortable pillow makes it so difficult to fall and stay asleep through the night.
How can you tell it’s time to change your pillows?
1 – Waking up with Neck pain
As your pillow ages, it begins to break down and provide less support to your neck and head. Without proper support, you’ll have neck pain, back pain, or a headache in the morning. If you are constantly waking up with pain or feeling fuzzy? it is time to change those pillows.
2- Your pillows feel and look lumpy
Lumps are a sure sign that the supportive material in your pillow is starting to wear out. Not only is a lumpy pillow uncomfortable, but it also will not deliver enough support. It’s time for a new pillow if you’re sleeping on lumps every night.
3- The Fold Test
Fold your existing pillow in half and hold it for about 30 seconds. When you release it, the pillow should regain its normal shape. If the pillow stays folded and doesn’t spring back at all, then you need to replace it.
4- Age of your Pillows
Over time, all pillows slowly become packed with dust, mites, dead skin cells, and mold. You can use a pillow protector to extend your pillow’s life. However, you should replace older pillows at least every 18 months to keep your bedroom clean and healthy.
