We human beings spend over 30% of our lives asleep – That’s more than pretty much any other activity!

Just as much as the way we walk or sit, the way we sleep can have a major effect on our posture – and, simultaneously, our health.

When you put it all into perspective like this, the answer to the question Health Magazine has posed in its most recent issue (“Are Pricey Pillows Worth It?”) becomes quite obvious: Yes, they most certainly are:

“‘The most important thing is to choose a pillow that keeps your head, neck, and shoulders aligned, whatever position you sleep in,’ says Jeffrey Goldstein, MD, a spine surgeon at NYU Langone Medical Center… Health tested ones designed to keep users in the ideal position.” And among the ones they recommend is, of course, our BackJoy® Posture Sleep Pillow!

Pick up a copy of the magazine’s December 2012 issue to read the entire review and see which other pillows the Health editors recommend for a better night’s sleep, and visit BackJoy.com to learn more about our patented pillow. And if you’ve already had a chance to test it out, please let us know in the “comments” section below!
