There is one thing we should always remember to give ourselves to live a fulfilling life: Have a good night’s worth of sleep, every day, if possible.
Mattresses, bolsters, blankets are all important, however, pillows can be considered the most essential reason behind whether we are going to wake up with a smile on our faces or an enduring neck ache that never seems to go away.
I have always used the regular market fluffy pillows that I grab from the supermarket each time I needed a new piece. However, as I am growing older, my neck becomes more delicate and sensitive to irregular tossing and turning when I move around in my sleep.
Looking for a solution, I happen to chance upon Origin Mattress, a company that specializes in sleep-related products. I must say I was quite intrigued by their unique pillow which provides a responsive Latex foam support and is completed with a removable Tencel fabric pillow cover.
The next thing I know was a purchase being made, and a few days of a sore neck before the pillow finally arrived!
First thing’s first, the product package looks really minimalistic, my cup of tea.
When I opened the box to reveal the pillow, it looked just as good as I have seen in the pictures. Holding it in my hand, I can feel a soft, melting sensation that gave me pleasant tingles. At this point in time, my expectations were rising. It’s time to put the pillow to the litmus test!
Dressing it up with a freshly washed pillow sheet, I tucked myself into bed and placed my head on the pillow, lying flat downwards at first to try it out. My head slowly sinks into the pillow without much rigidity and it was a comfortable position to be in.
I thought to myself whether this feeling would last throughout the night, so I went to turn off the lights and prepared to rest for the night. I tested a few positions, like sleeping on both sides, with a bolster, without one, and I must say, the best position for me with this pillow was simply to lie flat on my back. I fell asleep pretty quickly afterward.
When I woke up in the morning, I didn’t experience the usual soreness in my neck, so that’s a plus!
At this point in time, I would give this pillow eight sheep out of ten! I do recommend those with a sensitive neck to try this pillow out!
