Restless nights and not getting the proper rest can negatively affect students grades. Sometimes students get so caught up in their busy life they forget their sleep is important. If you are a student we know life is busy and getting even a few hours of sleep can be hard.
One thing you should acknowledge is the pillow you sleep on, a lot of the times people don’t think there is a difference in the pillow the sleep on. Little do they know is they are missing out on better sleep nights. Whether you are a side, back sleeper or stomach sleeper; sleeping on the wrong pillow can cause body aches, neck pain and shoulders pain. These problems could make it harder for you to focus. With restless nights comes the lack of motivation and if you are a college student you know there is no time for that, all the energies possible are needed.
As the images above demonstrate the best sleep relies greatly on the pillow you sleep on. For any type of sleeper the ideal pillow provides enough support according to weight, ensuring proper neck and spinal alignment.
