I’ve been doing an experiment for about a week; sleeping without a pillow. It really started with my youngest daughter peeing on my pillow one day when I was getting her dressed and changing her diaper to go somewhere. I slept without a pillow that night and I started wondering if sleeping without a pillow changes the way you sleep.
I haven’t came to any solid conclusions. I don’t think I toss and turn as much getting to sleep. I don’t have a pillow to position and reposition until it feels just right. The thing that surprised me the most was I’m not uncomfortable sleeping without a pillow and even the first night I didn’t have trouble getting or staying asleep. I did dream last night for the first time in a long time. I don’t know if that can be attributed to sleeping without a pillow or not. I think over time I could train my body to sleep in some seemingly uncomfortable situations.
