Stop Fighting With the Pillow
Many of us wake up in the morning with a stiff neck and we think we have done nothing to cause the stiffness and pain. In reality what we do while sleeping is just as important as what we do while we are awake.
The one thing that is supposed to be making you comfortable while you sleep could be causing you pain - your pillow.
Sometimes we go to bed excited or emotionally charged, even about good things that happened during our day and when we go to bed we start to press on our pillow in different directions. We might fall sleep while we are still putting pressure on the pillow. Even if it's slight pressure, it can go on for hours while the muscles are still tense and this is what causes the stiffness.
Imagine carrying a bag of groceries that weighs only two pounds, but you carry it for four hours while your arm is bent. When you put the grocery bag down after four hours, you will notice the stiffness in your arm. The same goes for your neck and the pillow.
