You misused your travel pillow
The NEXT time you get on a plane, you should take another look at your travel pillow, as you’ve probably misused it.
People were taken aback by the revelation, with many calling it a game changer to sleep on during a flight.
Revealed by a TikTok user named Sidneyraz, said in the video: “Here’s something I wish I knew before I turned 30”.
He then put the travel pillow on his neck – but turned it over, adding, “Travel pillows go out front. I’m so comfortable.”
He then wrote: “You can actually sleep on a flight.”
TikTok users were shocked to find that they had misused it the entire time, putting the main part of the pillow behind them instead of the front to support the chin.
One person said: “This makes so much sense, why am I shocked.”
Another person also said, “No way. My life has always been a lie.
One TikTok user joked, “I wish I had known this on my 10 hour flight.”
Many agreed: “I never understood why I found them uncomfortable, but I was doing it wrong all the time.”
Many people said they blamed the ads, which always showed the travel pillow behind the neck, not the front.
Others who said they had already done so often got strange looks from other passengers.
In 2019, Dr Micheal Breus – or The Sleep Doctor as he is known to American viewers – told News.com.au: “And one thing I tell my clients is if you have a neck pillow shaped like a U, turn it over. so the bottom of the U is under your chin. “
He continued, “This is because your head tends to move, which will wake you up, and by turning the pillow, it keeps your head from moving.”
Here are some of the best travel pillows you can buy right now.
