Pillow vs No Pillow – Which is best?

pillow

If you’re suffering any sort of neck or back pain, then you’re going to look for ways to alleviate that. One of the oldest wives tales that you might have heard is that sleeping without a pillow is the best way to stop getting neck pains, as you often wake up with neck pains in the morning. But, is this a myth or is there research backing up this type of theory?

Well if you’re a side sleeper, then you’re definitely going to want to use a pillow – the same can be said for those that sleep on their back. But, if you’re a stomach sleep then you might want to consider starting to sleep without a pillow to keep your neck level with your spine.

I know – it can be confusing to know why you should sleep in this manner. But, there are reasons that you should sleep this way and I’ll try to take that into consideration in this post. Lets have a look at why you should sleep with a pillow most of the time.

Back Sleepers

If you’re a back sleeper, then may it would seem logical that you should sleep without a pillow. I mean, doesn’t this just make sense? Well, apparently not as research shows that this isn’t necessarily the case. One of the wealthiest guys in the pillow industry Mike Lindell (just check the my pillow inventor net worth online) can attest that back sleepers should use a pillow to keep their head levitated.

Side Sleepers

If you’re a side sleeper and you want to continue using a pillow, then you’re also in luck. It’s said that side sleepers should also use a pillow, because this is necessary to keep the spine straight and avoid flat back syndrome. Sleeping on your side is considered by most professionals as the best way to sleep to avoid aches and pains accruing throughout the night.

Stomach Sleepers

If you’re a stomach sleeper and you’re debating getting rid of your pillow, then maybe you have a case. There is research that suggests that sleeping with a pillow if you’re a stomach sleeper can actually have a negative effect on your spine, as it forces it out of alignment with the neck.

If you are a stomach sleeper, then you should consider getting yourself an extremely thin pillow – or you can avoid getting yourself a pillow altogether.

Conclusion

Overall, it’s pretty clear to see that you should try to gauge what type of sleeper that you are. If you’re a stomach sleeper, then it could be worth considering ditching the pillow and seeing if your neck pains improve. If you’re a side or back sleeper, then don’t get rid of the pillow just yet.

5 Rappers all the kids love

lil-baby

If you’re trying to keep down with the kids, then you really need to be listening to hip hop. It’s definitely the most popular genre of music at the moment and you’ll see it scattered all over the charts.

There’s an abundance of Lil’s and Young’s coming out on the hip hop scene that make it really hard to keep up with what’s going on. To help, I’ve made this super short list of some of the top hip hop rappers that are around right now.

Young Thug

Although he sounds like a super bad guy, some of Young Thugs lyrics are hilarious and he’s not too bad. There’s a lot of talk that Young Thug is gay, but he appear to me to just be a bit eccentric. He has had some good albums come out and my favorite song of his is Wyclef Jean! If you haven’t seen the video then you shold check it out because it’s hilarous.

Lil Yachty

Lil Yachty’s music is just catchy. Although he doesn’t have the best lyrical content, it’s hard to deny that broccoli isnt one of the catchiest darn tunes you’ve ever heard! Although he doesn’t released as much music now he’s still super popular (or so my kids tell me).

Lil Uzi Vert

Lil Uzi had the biggest song of 2017 with XO Tour Life – it’s just an awesome catchy beat that anyone can vibe to. Even though if you check the lyrics to the song they can be a bit dark and weird, Lil Uzi is definitely someone that you should keep up with.

Lil Baby

I hadn’t of Lil Baby until he released a song with Drake – now he seems to be everywhere! Like Lil Yachty he is from Atlanta – home to some of the best rappers around. My kids love Lil Baby so you should get to know him because he is probably going to be around for a while.

Migos

Migos make up the round up of some of the best rappers that you’ll find coming out in the last year or two. They’re older than the other rappers mentioned but that doesn’t mean that the kids like them any less! They have some great tunes and collaboratd with Lil Uzi on Bad and Boujee – one of the biggest songs of 2016.

Gift ideas for the new man in your life

pilot-watch

Looking for ideas for gifts to get the man in your life? Well, here I’m going to run through some ideas for what you might want to get your fella. There’s an abundance of different things that you can get your man, but there’s definitely a bunch of things that will suit all guys. So if this is a new guy in your life, then you can play it safe with these gifts and not have to worry too much about what you’re getting him.

There are some things that you can get any guy and the likelihood is that they’ll be happy. These ideas include things like;

Watches

Every man like a good watch. Try and get him something that can go with any occasion. For me, I personally like to find the best pilot watch around for my other half because he particularly like aviation and navigation. This type of watch is a great idea because it can be worn with jeans and a t shirt, but also goes well with a suit. You don’t need to break the bank to get a nice watch like this, so it’s worth considering if you’re struggling for ideas.

Cologne

Another good choice of gift for a new man in your life is to play it super safe. For this, you might want to look at getting him a good cologne. Cologne can be awesome but you want to make sure that you’re getting him the best one for his needs. For me, that means going for Issey Miyake. It is my favorite cologne for men and I’ve bought it for numerous partners in the past – no complaints yet!

Tickets to an Event

Okay, for this one you definitely need a little knowledge of what it is that the guy is interested in generally. But have you ever been on a dinner date and found it to be ridiculously boring, even though you kinda like the guy? Well if you get him tickets to an event, then it ensures that you get to see the man at his best – happy and enjoying himself. Of course, trying to make it an event that you’ll like too is always a bonus!

Round Up

Overall, these are what I believe to be the safest of the three options if you’re looking at something for a new partner. If you are, then it’s a good idea to have a bit of knowledge on him beforehand so that you aren’t completely off the mark!

DDLG – Is it normal?

ddlg11

If you’re starting to experiment with your partner, then it can be difficult to find things that you both enjoy. If you haven’t had much experience together, then it can be worth trying out new things together to learn what each other like. One thing that you might want to try together is DDLG.

If you haven’t heard about DDLG, it stands for Daddy Dom Little Girl. Essentially it is the practice of of one partner taking on the caring role with the the other person in the relationship taking on the role of the child. We say DDLG as an umbrella term, but you also get other variations of this where the woman may be the dominant in the relationship.

Although DDLG relationships have got some bad press for being a little weird, the reality is that they’re actually pretty normal. People assume that there must be some trauma in the persons life for them to be comfortable doing this kind of thing, but in reality it is surprisingly normal. There does not need to be any sort of weird thing gone on in a persons life for them to want to participate in DDLG. It can just be stemmed from a fantasy!

If you’ve never tried this type of thing, then don’t worry. I know that it can be a little overwhelming but it really doesn’t have to be. Just ensure that you practice playing safe when you are experimenting with your partner. You should also have a safe word so that if one of you feels uncomfortable whilst playing, you can back out at any time.

One of the most popular things for people to try in the bedroom is to try a dom and submissive dynamic – it seems that the majority of women are interested in trying this. Not only women, but sometimes men like to give up the dominance they may have in their general life and let their partners take control. This is completely normal and something that you may want to try!

Overall, a DDLG relationship may be too much for some people. If you live the life constantly then it can be a little overwhelming. But it is something that you could consider trying every now and then to see if you like it!
