Everyone has their own set of unique preferences when it comes to the kind of pillow they sleep on. Some people swear by firm pillows while others prefer goose down pillows. The height of the pillow is also a personal decision with some people opting for ultra-slim pillows.
Slim pillows are not for everyone but they do have some benefits:
- They keep your neck supported. Stomach sleepers will benefit the most from sleeping on a thin pillow. Sleeping on your stomach means your neck gets pushed to awkward angles. By sleeping on a thinner pillow you keep your neck at a more natural angle. If the pillow is made from down, feathers or foam it will provide even better support for your neck.
- Ensure your spine is aligned. Sleeping on your back might result in your neck being thrown too far forward, which will cause neck pain and mean you don’t sleep soundly. In addition, when your spine is misaligned you will toss and turn. A thinner pillow solves this and aligns your spine so that you are able to sleep comfortably.
- They help you recharge. A thinner pillow will allow you to sleep comfortably which means you won’t be tossing and turning all night. When you are able to sleep well you will wake up feeling refreshed and recharged.
- They could help to prevent wrinkles. When you sleep on a large pillow your face is squashed into the pillow which means you are likely to gather wrinkles. A thin pillow means your facial skin is stretched like normal which can prevent premature signs of aging.
- Your head is kept still. Thin pillows will not result in your head rolling from side to side. If your head is kept still while you are sleeping, you are preventing your spine from changing position which could result in a stiff and sore neck when you wake up.
