Sure, it seems like the bed should do the majority of the work. And it does. But that’s all for your back and for the rest of your body. Your pillow is for the support of your neck, as well as providing a comfortable place for your head.
It seems strange, doesn’t it? To have to worry so much about the head, the smaller part of your body, when so much of the talk of beds concerns the larger part.
But the truth is, there’s no words for the misery of falling asleep when every other part of your body is comfy and the neck, the last part, just can’t get right. It’ll keep you awake, and if it doesn’t, you still run the risk of dealing with a stiff neck after.
So, pillows are important.
