Grandparents and old people says that if a new born is made to sleep on a pillow that is filled with mustard seeds, the head and neck of the baby gets the proper support and it becomes hard just like the way it should be so that the neck becomes firm in order to balance the head quickly.
This is not just a myth but is a fact. People normally underestimate the basic things like mattresses and pillows as they do not realize the importance of such small habits.
Especially for the people who have been complaining for various back aches, shoulder problems, back bone issues, spondylitis etc. a good pillow is a major need. A good pillow does not mean that the pillow must be of a good quality, high price, branded or clean.
Good pillows are the once that fits specifically with the weight of the person and height. Each person has a different combination of body weight and height and the pillow must support this combination.
The major thing that one needs to see is that that while sleeping, there should be a straight line formed starting from the head to the waist. This posture or this straight line ensures that the spinal cord is not getting affected during the sleep.
Also ladies who have rough hair and hair fall complaints must use softer and silkier pillow material to avoid breakage of hair and a good pillow also gives people a better sleep that helps in keeping away anxieties.
