Waking up from a good night’s sleep is something we’re huge fans of. Taking that feel-good morning stretch as your coffee brews is an important part of the day, and starting it right helps prepare you for productivity.
On the other hand, when we’ve had a bad sleep, all we want to do is hide under our duvet for another half hour in a bid to catch some shut-eye.
As humans, we spend approximately one-third of our lives sleeping — a massive chunk of time, right? Since this is the case, we should really be savouring the moment our head hits the pillow each night. The best way to do this? Invest in products that match your specific sleep type.
No two sleepers are the same, and if you’re unsure of which one you are, stay with us. In celebration of their 25th birthday, we’ve partnered up with Sleep Country Canada to explain the three main types of sleepers and the innovative sleep products that help them catch some quality z’s.
Are you someone who can’t rest easy until you lie on your side? Well, dear friend, you are a fully-fledged side sleeper. Whether you choose the warm or cool side of your pillow, this is how you settle into slumber.
You might even place one hand under your pillow as you nod off (just us?), but either way, you need extra support for your neck so you’re not strained during the night. The benefits of a thicker pillow are seriously underrated for side sleepers, as Sleep Country says it helps with the alignment of your neck, head, and spine.
Back or stomach sleeper
If you can only fall asleep in a starfish position on your back or laying on your stomach, congratulations — you’re officially a back or stomach sleeper! You own your preferred way to fall into a deep sleep, and you might even take up half of your bed when you do.
On your back, the neck is in a neutral position, and Sleep Country Canada explains that sleeping this way can even lead to fewer facial wrinkles (who knew?). When it comes to choosing the right pillow, a thinner option helps keep your head and neck closer to the mattress, preparing you for a sound night’s slumber.
If you’re someone who can sleep no matter what position you find yourself in, whether it’s at the top of the bed on your back, in the middle flat-out on your stomach, or at the foot of the bed on your side, you’re an all sleeper.
Sleep Country Canada says you’re basically the mover and shaker of sleepers! For this reason, a pillow of medium thickness offers a balanced level of support for all of your twists and turns. Plus, it also helps keep you aligned and off of your partner’s side of the bed (we’re all guilty of this one).
Feeling inspired to snap up products to complement the kind of sleeper you are? Well, if you need another incentive, Sleep Country Canada is doing something really special to celebrate their milestone 25th birthday.
