So, what could be the possible reason?? Work pressure?? Stress?? Anxiety?? Tired Body?? Or what?? Whenever we talk about disturbed sleep the only reasons we could think of all the above but have you ever thought of other reasons affecting your sleep and in turn your health?? Let’s get a clear picture for you…..

Ever heard of Ergonomic pillows specifically customised for you? 

Yes you are thinking on the right track… We are talking about an ergonomic neck pillow customised for you only and as per your body measurements.

We spend an average of 7-8 hours every day with our pillows but we never pay attention or care about the size and thickness of it and later face problems like neck and back pain. Having the right bed pillows is not only comforting, they play an important role in supporting the intricate structures of the head, neck, shoulders, hips, and spine. Pillows serve to keep the upper body in alignment during sleep, relieving pressure and counterbalancing the points in the body.

Are pillows bad for your neck?

I am sure many of us may think that sleeping without a pillow is better for our body than sleeping on it. In my prescriptive, sleeping with a pillow is much better than sleeping without a pillow. Pillow helps to maintain a good sleeping posture. It has supportive feature and gives the head a complete rest.

There are a variety of neck pillows in the market that aim to reduce neck pain and give you a good sleep. All are designed to create a natural resting position for your head that maintains the lordotic curve of your spine. Choices include neck pillows made from foam or stuffed with fibrefill or other materials, as well as styles that are inflatable or are filled with water. Inflatable and water-filled pillows allow you to customize the firmness and support.

So are all pillows the same? How to choose the best for oneself?

No, absolutely NOT..!!! Pillows are very personal things. A good pillow for you may not be suitable for me. Every individual is different, our height weight parameters could be the same but our body shape, and curves can’t be the same. And since they can never be same; how one pillow that might be able to go perfect for you will work for me too?? Number of factors plays an important role in that like the way you sleep, the height of your shoulder and other parameters which are very individual to a person.

While it’s true a standard pillow was intended to provide support to this neck, the NECKFIT offers something extra. Its sole purpose is to support the neck as well as cradle it, helping to be able to attenuate neck and muscle mass soreness.

While a pillow should provide support along with the adequate comfort to the user in order to experience peaceful and relaxed sleeping, It should also contour your body perfectly leaving no spaces behind.

Benefits of sleeping with a NECKFIT pillow:

  • Sleeping on your side without a pillow increases your risk of osteoarthritis in the neck. If you sleep on your side, your cervical spine bends to the bed. This pinches the openings of the spine (the foramina) and causes bones to push and rub against each other. That friction and pressure causes bone to erode and grow which can create the bone spurs. NECKFIT pillow raises the head and straightens the spine as per height and broadness of your shoulder.

  • Sleeping on your back without a pillow changes your neck angle from its normal daily position. When standing, your neck also has a certain curve to it. If you sleep on your back, that curve is also distorted. NECKFIT maintain the gap behind your neck and provide optimal support and comfort.


In general, studies suggest that sleeping with a pillow improves sleep quality and fits more physiologically and mechanically with the natural curve of the cervical spine. Even the Egyptians over 3,000 years ago used pillows.

Your Neck Length is equal to the distance between your Occipital Protuberance (that pointed bone on the lower back of your head) and C7 vertebrae (the first outer boniest projection on your spine as you go down your neck on the spine). The Pillow should perfectly fill in the gap to maintain your lordotic curve while sleeping thus releasing muscles tension free .
