September's Resolution

I have been so bad with my resolutions for the past few months. It's surprising easy to forget to do them and even easier to forget to put up the next month's post!

I'd been thinking for a few days what I'd like to do for this month. I thought about giving up alcohol, but I'm going to a wedding on Saturday and it's Jack's birthday later this month so I can see at least two opportunities to fail! I then thought about food but I've been on my 'lady time' (too much info? Sorry. Actually I don't care. Go away) so have been eating everything and anything in sight so would have failed that one within the first day of September!

Something I've been reading about lately is the benefits of sleeping without a pillow, a little random yes, but quite interesting too. I find that with blogging, uni work and general laziness I'm sitting down most hours in the day and have started to slump a bit. It goes without saying that it's a terrible habit where posture and health is concerned, but from years of gymnastics I have a bad back already and this is not helping the situation. So basically I am trying to realign and straighten my spine and hopefully reduce the daily pains in my back and neck.

From what I've read, you should slowly reduce pillow height rather than going straight for the mattress so this first week of September I have taken it down to one pillow from two, and if next week I'm getting used to it then I'll try down to perhaps a couple of t-shirts and then to nothing after that. My aim is basically that by the end of September I can sleep well and comfortably with no pillow (like Charlie and Joey are perfecting above) and for my back and neck pain to have reduced considerably!

Let's give it a go!


  1. Sounds interesting! I see a chiropractor because I have some back issues, I wonder what he has to say about this!

  2. I definitely find that if I'm having a particularly bad time with my back that sleeping without a pillow for a night really helps! I also sleep with a pillow under my hip too (if I'm lying on my side) so that my back is a bit straighter x

  4. I haven't heard this sleeping with no pillow is good thang! Might have to try reducing how much pillow I use too :P x
