I tested … A POSTURE PILLOW
JOHANNE LAUZON Chef, Heath, Well-being
My head has felt all kinds, soft, rigid, huge, tubed-shaped, down, foam, latex, buckwheat hulls. Clearly,these pillows have never had a tangible effect on my nights. I sleep pretty well. It’s just that I move. What am I saying? I exercise: double twist on the stomach, somersault on the back, then jumps to the left and right. And I repeat until the radio clock shoots the voice of Marie-France Brazeau and his gang.
Posture pillow to improve sleep? Okay. But let’s not exaggerate. How something placed beneath the headcould have an impact on the quality of sleep? Come on.
That night, I took out of its bag the Somnia pillow – position on the side, despite my vacillations, it is always on the right side as I land. I let my heavy head fall. My shoulder too often rotated forward, wasplaced over right in the space provided for this purpose. My neck was under less tension. The support was impeccable; neither too soft nor too firm, with gel infused memory foam.
In the morning, I was still installed on the right side. Oh well. Fresher and sharper than usual.
