How to use your pillow

It seems like everyday we rub our heads against a large mass of fluffiness, also known as pillows. Believe it or not pillows were actually designed to assist in sleeping and carry a vital role in ensuring a full REM cycle. Although there are many factors that affect the course of our nightly sleep, using a pillow is one of the most important steps to achieve a deep slumber. You may or may not understand the role of sleep in our society, but by the end of this tutorial I can assure you, the reader, that you will be one more step ahead in knowing how to rest like a real human being.

Things you will need: A pillow, your head, a blanket (optional), something to lay on, and finally, the rest of your body.

Step 1: Find a spot to lay on, preferably a comfortable one. It could be on a bed (most common choice), couch, sleeping bag, a soft carpet, an air mattress, a cot (if you’re out in the wilderness), etc.. Chances are, if you sleep on a harder surface like hardwood flooring, you will have a harder time sleeping.

Step 2: Put your pillow of choice on the spot that you scouted in the first step. It will work best if you place the pillow closer to either end of the chosen location as your body may hang off the edge of the surface of you have chosen a slightly elevated spot.

Step 3: Lay down and place your head on the pillow. Depending on who you are, you may lay your head facing straight up at the ceiling or on either one of its sides. You might change it up throughout your sleep, but that is up to you.

Step 4: Finally, close your eyes and breathe.

If you have followed these steps correctly, you will most likely be sleeping at this point of the tutorial. If you are still awake after these steps, you probably have insomnia or some other issue that may affect your sleeping. If so, you should probably see a doctor because I am not a licensed physician. If you were harmed during this process, you are liable for your own actions and I have nothing to do with your external complications.
