Body (Pillow) Goals!
Updated: Sep 28
Add a body pillow to your sleep product collection for added support and comfort!
Something that I am not sure how I lived without before I got one, was a body pillow! A body pillow can serve much more purpose than simply providing a barrier between your bed and the wall it is pressed against. Body pillows are a great way to access a deeper level of sleep, and provide elongated full body support for any type of sleeper.
As discussed in a previous post about sleep positions, I mentioned that a lot of people (myself included!) are pillow huggers. There is something so warm and comforting about having a body-sized pillow that offers head-to-toe comfort. Aside from that, there are many benefits to using a body pillow that many may have not considered before. Here are just a few benefits to using a body pillow each night:
Head to toe comfort - The first and most obvious reason for a body pillow, is that it can provide full body comfort that no other sleep product can. Especially pillows that offer other benefits such as temperature regulation or memory foam support, this could be a great option for those looking for a deeper sleep.
Great choice for pillow huggers and cuddlers! Experience the effect of a comforting hug in your sleep. We all want more hugs! Holding onto a body pillow at night can replicate this sensation and create a sense of relaxation as you slowly drift to sleep.
Added support and pressure point relief - A body pillow that stretches from head to toe will help with alignment. Instead of your body falling into uncomfortable positions on a mattress that is too firm, the pressure points on your body will get much needed support and relief. Say goodbye to aching joints and sore hips, shoulders and knees. Wake up feeling fresh and limber instead!
Less tossing and turning - Tossing and turning can be a huge cause for lower quality sleep. It is hard to sleep deep when you are moving and waking up every hour. If you are a wiggle worm when you are trying to sleep, a body pillow could be a great solution for you to help you stay put! If you sleep with a partner, they will also thank you for this!
Boundary between you and sleep partner - Whether you sleep with another person, a dog, a cat, etc., it is nice to have some privacy in your sleep environment. Use a body pillow as a barrier between you and your bedmate to secure your own space of the bed!
For the pillow huggers and cuddle bunnies out there, those looking to improve posture and alignment, or just those looking for some added comfort, I recommend a body pillow to kick your sleep environment up a notch! If you don’t have a body pillow, and are five feet two inches tall like me, a king size pillow is a workable alternative! Try adding the SleepSmart king size pillow to your collection. Sleep well!
