Diary Of A Spoonie | Kally Sleep

As we all know I have suffered for many years now with chronic pain in my back, shoulders and neck thanks to an injury I obtained whilst at work, one area that has been most affected in recent years has been my sleep. I have tried almost everything from sports massages and TENs machines to Epsom salt baths and painkillers, something I have found (and copied from work) is having my back or legs supported with pillows because it really took the pressure of my back or legs and allowed me to get a restful nights sleep. Recently I've just been using the pillows on my bed whilst I was on the hunt for a body pillow and I was so excited when this Sports Recovery pillow from Kally Sleep arrived on my doorstep because it has everything I'm looking for!

Living with chronic pain means that simply having a lie down doesn't always help and 90% of the time I get up feeling worse or in worse pain than I did before so I've put some more time and money into finding products that help promote a better nights sleep for me. Most of my pain is through my neck, back, hips and ribs so getting comfortable to lie down or sleep is not easy at all and even if I sleep for what should be a good length of time, I'm often waking up feeling exhausted or like I've only slept for a couple of hours.

The Kally Sleep Sports Recovery pillow is a fully orthopaedic pillow that aligns your head, neck and spine and is designed to reduce pressure on key joints to help reduce pain and discomfort as well as helping to aid muscle recovery and growth after training. The pillow has been designed in collaboration with sporting experts and physios to benefit everyone whether you are a beginner to fitness or you're a die hard fan! The Sports Recovery pillow features a supportive hollowfibre filling which moulds to your body to give you comfort and natural alignment in your sleep, whilst the TENCEL lyocell fibre technology which is a soft, breathable material which helps to keep your pillow cool during your sleep no matter the weather to help optimise ideal sleeping conditions. 

I've been using the Sports Recovery pillow either on days that I've been working out, having a bad pain day or if I've had a really busy shift at work and my feet/legs are throbbing and honestly it's been such a game changer for me. I find that the pillow is the perfect firmness and it literally contours perfectly to your body to give you the most support, whether I'm cuddling it, putting it behind my back or using it to raise my legs and feet. If I'm having a really bad pain day I've used the Sports Recovery pillow to rest against and take pressure off my back, but I also use it with my plug in heat pad which I pop on top of the pillow and it allows me to get the heat to the perfect areas I need it in.

Since I've started using the Kally Sleep Sports Recovery pillow, I've honestly I've noticed such an improvement in my quality of sleep. I'm actually getting a deeper sleep as apposed to when I don't use the pillow so I'm actually waking up in the morning feeling a lot more rested which honestly helps with my pain so much. I've also been using the pillow to rest against when I'm reading in bed which is something I've not been able to do for the past couple of years purely because I haven't felt supported enough and then I end up with muscular pain, it works perfectly as a V-shaped pillow to rest against because it gives my back, shoulders and neck, the perfect level of support. 

As someone with chronic pain, I honestly put no price tag on being comfy and getting a good nights sleep. A lot of the body pillows I was looking were cheaper but was basically just a standard pillow so I wouldn't actually be getting the support that I really needed so I find the Sports Recovery Pillow a good investment into my pain and sleep for only £54.99 and honestly I've been using this pillow almost every day for over a month now and it still looks brand new so I can see it easily lasting me ages! It is super easy to remove the pillow case on the Sports Recovery pillow and having washed my pillow and the pillow cases, I find it so easy to do. They fit perfectly in my washing machine and washed really nicely on a 30 degree wash and left to dry naturally on an airer so it really is minimal fuss to look after, making it even more of a god send for me.

Have you tried a body pillow before?

Speak to you next time!
