Pillow 101

The average employee spends 2 years of their life in meetings.  
We walk a total of 110,000 miles during our lives (4 times around the world)
The average person spends 1.1 years of their life cleaning.
We spend 25 years sleeping.  That's a third of our lives!

For something that we spend so much time doing, a lot of us don't do it comfortably. Our beds are too soft, or too firm. Or too old. Then we spend countless hours trying different mattresses, until we lay on one that makes us say "ahh".

What about the pillow though?  Your pillow is essentially the bed for your head!  The mattress may support your body, but the key to full spinal support starts with your head. Depending on how you sleep, and what support you need, there are a variety of different pillows on the market today.  

Pillows range from standard to king size, and long body pillows.  There are pillows specially made for side sleepers, back sleepers and stomach sleepers.  If you sleep hot, there are pillows that will help keep you cool.  You don't have to flip the pillow over to the "cool side", these pillows are a consistent cool. 

The most important thing to remember when you buy a new mattress, is to get a new pillow at the same time.  Your mom and dad made you try on new clothes BEFORE you left the store, not when you got home.  You want to make sure that your body and head is fully supported by everything you will be laying on.

Our mattress specialists here at Cardi's Furniture & Mattresses will be happy to help you get exactly what you need for the BEST night's sleep possible. We carry all different types of mattresses, foundations, adjustable bases, pillows... even sheets!
