Love Your Pillow

People frequently ask me about pillows and how often they should be replaced. Great question!

It’s one of the easiest things to tackle to improve your sleep environment, and actually one of the most important.

Check out the video below that covers how you sleep, what your pillow should be made of, how to take care of your pillow and how often to wash it (YES!), and what you need to know about dust mites and pet dander.

I recently upgraded my pillow again with an allergy and dust mite-proof pillow cover. No need to spend over $50. It’s SO important if you have a pet, like I do. (I have an adorable cat named Cairo).

It’s time for you to get into action to protect your health with quality sleep. Upgrade your pillows today!
