Night 17

Much better and far more rested. This sleeping on my back is starting to work really well for me.

Previous steps: Slept much more comfortably. Sleeping on my back seems to be the way forward.

Next steps: Continue sleeping on my back with the soft pillow

Night 15

Aside from being a Monday, I think I slept on my back. I started noticing it’s easier for me to fall asleep when my head is turning to one side and I definitely don’t feel like turning to my side anymore.

Previous steps: Soft pillow is definitely the way

Next steps: Try to sleep again on my front

Night 14

What an amazing night sleep! Slept with ear plugs just in case some freaks decided to work early on a Sunday morning. Amazing rest. I don’t think I moved from my back the whole night!

Previous steps: Soft pillow is definitely the way

Next steps: Continue using the soft pillow.

Night 13

Construction works by my doorstep at 7.30am. Couldn’t believe it. It’s a f***** Saturday! What’s wrong with you people?! Anyway, good night sleep until the unwanted noise came along. Cold problem solved with the good old electric heater.

Night 12

It was very cold tonight. The boiler is broken. It’s November in London. Slept most of the night on my side, curling, occasionally turning on my back.

Next steps: Continue using the soft pillow.

Night 11

Nothing wrong on sleeping on my side occasionally anymore. I now seem to turn automatically on my back. Another potential advantage of sleeping on my back is the ability to use ear plugs comfortably.

Next steps: Continue using the soft pillow.

Night 9

The John Lewis pillows arrived yesterday and I chose the harder pillow to start with. Far too tall and stiff. Not for me.

Previous steps: The John Lewis pillow was not that shallow at all. Hopefully the soft pillow will work better

Next steps: Try soft John Lewis pillow

Night 8

Humm, not such a restful night again. Woke up with my back aching. I think it’s the dip in the mattress. Luckily we bought a new mattress that should arrive in the next 3 weeks. Hopefully this will sort my back issues.

Previous steps: Did maintain the correct head position, but very hard to accomplish. Ended up sleeping on my side before having to get up.

Next steps: Sleep with a shallower pillow. See if the lack of support on the sides will force the head to keep straight.
