Sitting for long periods of time in one position can sometimes be difficult. Fortunately, there are many little things that can make a big difference. Using a neck pillow is one way in which you can stay more comfortable while traveling. Plus, you'll give yourself the opportunity to get better rest while you're on the move.

How Do They Work?

The main job of a neck pillow is to support your head while you're sleeping. Remember that your upper body is vertical while you're in a car, a train, or an airplane. It can be very useful to have something there to elevate your head. This keeps it in a more natural position rather than being slumped over. If you've ever fallen asleep in an awkward position, you know what it feels like when you wake up. Using a neck pillow can potentially lessen any discomfort.

Are There Different Types of Neck Pillows?

Most basic neck pillows have a U shape. This gives you support on the back and either side of your head. To give that support, though, they often need to be inflated. This can be done in a few minutes by blowing air into the pillow. Deflation is even quicker. Other types of pillows are permanently inflated. These are quick to use, but they do require space for storage when not needed.

The Trtl Travel Pillow has an internal support structure. The structure consists of strengthened ribs that are strong yet lightweight. One of the main benefits of the Trtl Travel Pillow is that it's compact and easy to throw into a bag. Another advantage is that it can adapt to various positions. Some people may lean heavily toward one side when sleeping while others may just have a slight lean. People of various sizes can all make the appropriate adjustments.

What Is the Fabric Like?

The Trtl Travel Pillow is covered in foam and super-soft fleece. All of these materials are intended to be used directly against the skin. When shopping for a neck pillow, look for materials that are machine-washable.

When you're preparing for a trip, be sure to think about the travel process itself. Neck pillows are great ways to keep thingsĀ comfortable on your journey.
