Protect Your Neck While You Sleep
Sleep is one part of your life that you simply can’t do without. If you never slept, you would literally die! Of course, most of us are able to get at least a little bit of sleep. Sometimes, however, the quality is not necessarily as good as we wish it were. With busier lives than ever, sleep habits tend to take a hit. To improve the quality of your sleep, check out these tips for getting better sleep than ever.
Change Your Pillow
A pillow can make a lot of difference in your quality of sleep. A pillow that rests too high or too low can make your neck uncomfortable, resulting in a crick in the neck. It can also make it more difficult to breathe since your airways are not at a natural level. Simply finding a pillow that is at a good height for your body can make you more comfortable and protect your breathing and your spine all at the same time.
Buy a Pillow for Your Legs
Yep, you read that correctly. Buy a pillow just for your legs. Laying on your side with a pillow between your knees can help keep the spine in a natural position. This can make for some of the most comfortable sleep, and it can lead to a healthier spine when you wake up. When you’re searching for a pillow for your legs, just go for comfort. There isn’t a special kind or height. Any pillow that makes your body comfortable will work.
One way to help align the body and make it more comfortable both day and night is to see the chiropractor regularly. Chiropractors can often align the spine, fixing misalignments of the vertebrae that can cause discomfort or even pain. When the spine is in good working order, the rest of the body experiences better health as well. This means that you can function better and more efficiently during the day, and your body is better able to relax and unwind at night.
If you would like to give chiropractic care a try for your sleeping habits, go ahead and walk into The Joint...the Chiropractic Place at your convenience. With walk-in appointments, you really can get the care you need when you need it. A chiropractor at The Joint may be able to help you protect your spine leading to better sleep and a healthier life.
