Cooler than the Other Side of the Pillow

by Joseph Kwon in ,


Have you ever woken up in the middle of night where you can't get to sleep because it feels too hot? Or maybe, like some of my family members, who shall remain unnamed, you suffer from the affliction of "hot head" when sleeping. No medical danger here. Just a super-heating of the head when you fall asleep. One solution is to flip over your pillow to the cool side so you can drift off to sleep again. However, at 3 a.m. in the morning this normally effortless maneuver can seem like a chore. 

I recently found an EZPZ solution to help. It's called the Chillow and it's basically what it sounds like. A pillow that stay's chilled better than a regular pillow. I don't have the background to understand the magic that they employed to make this happen, but I can report back that it works. When you first receive it, you have to pour water inside, which gets absorbed by a foam-like filling inside which holds the arctic goodness. The Chillow is about the size of your pillow, but only about a half-inch high so you place it on top of your existing pillow.

Money saving tip: The best part of buying the Chillow is if you participate in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) offered by your employer, the Chillow is eligible for reimbursement. Just remember to save your receipt!
