When we sleep on the wrong pillow or in the wrong way or on a bad mattress, we feel terrible in the morning, even with eight hours in bed.
What’s the value of your pillow?
Your pillow might determine how your shoulders, neck, and back feel, how well you recover after a workout, how cranky you are with your kids, your spouse, your co-workers, and how you feel when you get up in the morning.
What if a pillow could take the place of a chiropractor, expensive recovery supplements, or your first cup of coffee in the morning? What if you could jump out of bed feeling like you had more energy just because you got better, more restorative sleep?
I know that sleep is so important to health.
I don’t always live it. I don’t always spend as much time as I should in my amazing bed, which I love in the morning, but avoid at night. (Why I do that?!)
But when I’m in bed, I want to get a good night’s sleep.

Setting up an Adjustable Pillow
A word of caution: follow the instructions! The WakeWell pillow comes overstuffed, and you need to remove some of the latex to adjust the fit to your body.
Because I wanted to film a video of me unboxing and setting up the WakeWell, I kept putting this off.
Eventually, my husband just grabbed it one night and woke up with a sore neck because we hadn’t adjusted it and the pillow was too big.
Watch me adjust the pillow to see exactly what it looks like:

What Makes the WakeWell Non-Toxic Pillow Special!
What makes the WakeWell pillow different?
First of all, it’s different because it’s flexible, you can make this pillow as fat or as thin as you want for the way you sleep. How cool!
It has four individual channels down the length of the pillow. So I can choose to have it thicker at the edges and thinner in the middle (good for side sleepers!).
Keep in mind when you’re choosing a pillow that you want your neck to be totally straight with your spine.
Pro tip: I would adjust your WakeWell on a hard floor or maybe a clean table on a day where you need to vacuum. It was so much messier than I anticipated!
Talalay latex is non-toxic. That’s actually what drew me to WakeWell in the very first place. I always start with non-toxicity. That’s incredibly important for everything in the Kitchen Stewardship® household.
You’re spending (hopefully!) eight full hours resting your head on your pillow. You don’t want it to be off-gassing toxins into your face!
Wish you could control your stress instead of feeling like it’s controlling your life, your sleep, and your temper?
Women react to stress differently than men and need special strategies!
I was certified as a Stress Mastery Educator for this very reason – so I could bring HOPE to moms like me feeling like life is getting the better of them (and in my case, getting very angry about it).
This course is VERY quick, consumable, and full of support to make it work in your busy life!

An Adjustable Pillow that Adapts With You
I ordered this pillow because I thought the adjustable concept was so cool. Individualize your pillow for how you want to sleep!
Imagine if you had surgery and you had to lay on your back for a while but you’re not normally a back sleeper. Well, all of a sudden now your pillow doesn’t work! Except that this pillow totally could.
As you’re removing latex, be sure to save it so that you can readjust later if you change your favorite sleeping position.
WakeWell Pillow Review After a Month
Can’t see the video? Watch our WakeWell Pillow Review here on YouTube.
After I adjusted the pillow by removing some of the latex, my husband slept on it for a couple of nights, and his pain was better but not gone.
Let me underscore that he’d been doing a lot of weightlifting and had incredible back neck and shoulder pain. IT was so bad that he thought he had a pinched nerve.
I reduced the amount of filling the amount of Talalay latex filling in the WakeWell pillow one more time. Once I got it right, he woke up and said, “Oh my goodness, I feel great!”
All that stiffness, all that pain was basically gone overnight!
Sometimes it’s hard to tell if you have more energy because of a new diet (or new pillow!) or if you just happened to get more sleep that night. Our bodies are so complex!
But this was so convincing and so correlative it has to be causative.
This pillow absolutely positively helped my husband feel better and get up with more energy!
Is the WakeWell Non-Toxic Pillow for You?
I’m a super fan!
I’m starting to get a little jealous of my husband even though I love my down feather pillow that I’ve had since we got married, but I’m thinking I might need to get a WakeWell for myself just to have the ability to play with the four zones and see if I can get even better sleep and be less sore in the morning.
When you wake up energized, you feel better, you treat people better, and you have more capacity to bring to the world
If you are someone who feels like you’re not getting great sleep, if you’re waking up with sore shoulders, neck, or back or if you just wonder if a pillow could increase the energy you bring to your family give it 120 days to try it out. It’s so worth it!
WakeWell has a 120 days sleep guarantee. So you can try this thing out and experiment with it for 120 days, and still send it back!
