I’ve written it a hundred times before and it’s no less true today than the very first time I wrote it. You spend a third of your life in bed and that’s a conservative estimate that doesn’t include sick days, romantic mornings, sleeping in or impromptu naps. Your bed is your lifeline. It’s where you reset, recharge and recuperate from all the things that day has put you through. If your bed isn’t equipped with top-tier sleep accessories, your sleep is going to suffer and thus your nightly recharge won’t be complete.
Imagine putting your phone on the charger nightly and every morning you wake up to find it has only charged up to 65 percent. You’d find yourself having to put your phone back on the charger a number of times a day and your general battery life would suffer from a life attached to the cord. That’s exactly what poor sleep does to a person. With the right sleep accessories, you might find yourself relying on caffeine, over the counter pain relievers and naps as a regular pick-me-up less, but you might find yourself wanting to nap more because your bed is so amazing.
Below you’ll find the best pillows from 3 great brands that want to see you sleep better.
