We all have aches and pains from time to time but sometimes the way we’re sleeping isn’t helping. What if there was a solution for back and shoulder issues that most men are overlooking? Yes, we know cuddling with our significant others has become a fall back and we enjoy the closeness and warmth. It’s important to have the right support and to keep your shoulders square; falling forward will negatively affect your alignment. My personal story had me struggling for years to find some way to stay on my side without my shoulder and hips collapsing. Things started to change for me though once I started using an organic body pillow.
So many men don’t ask themselves what they need. We wake up in discomfort and pass it off as just the way life is. I’m sore, stiff and in pain but I can handle it. I’m strong and resilient. I can take it. Have you spoken those words? I know I did for years.
Imagine a 240 pound, 6'2" gentleman sleeping on his side. As deep sleep starts to kick in, his top leg moves over his bottom leg and his whole body starts to move due to gravity. As he leans forward, his wide shoulders collapse, leaving a huge twist in his spine. Ultimately his bottom arm goes under the pillow to get that extra space needed to support the neck. Problem is, there isn’t anything stopping his shoulder from moving forward. This is when the body pillow becomes very useful.
