All my life, I work as a freelancer. Meaning -- I don't have an eight to five job. My work hours can be as short as 2 hours, or can be nightmarishly 24 or 36 hours straight. I am not joking. When I was still working full time at a TV network, I worked for 36 hours straight. That was the time, when I requested my husband to install heavy curtains in our room, because a lot of times, I sleep during daytime and I work at night. Those were the days... thankful now that I am way past that lifestyle :)

But why am I telling you this. Because I am a firm believer that for our bodies to recuperate from illness, or bounce back from overworking - we need our well deserve SLEEP.  

In my experience, if I feel sluggish or slightly not feeling well, I will not force myself to work. I will just rest and sleep. I believe that our body has a way of communicating with us, if it needs to rest, or fine tune some parts. And it pays to listen to what our body is tellling us.


You may think that sleeping is just a way to relieve you off your tiredness and a reprieve for a long day. Research shows that people tend to overlook the way they sleep. Having a bed and using just any type of pillow might not get you the quality of sleep you need.

There’s a myriad of choices when it comes to selecting a pillow but how do you choose the right pillow for your body type? An expert went out of his way to learn and develop a specialty pillow to address this concern.

Mr. Chawakit Kaoien, founder of Mr. Big Pillow is a physical therapist who spent years working in the ICU of a hospital’s respiratory unit and was in-charge of bedridden critical care patients and see to it that they are kept comfortable and could breathe properly. This led him to develop a brand of pillows that would benefit every individual.

Over the years, Chawakit hacked the right density of pillows as well as its best position to address your sleeping concerns. Every individual is different, thus, we cannot conform to just one type of pillow.
