As a kid, I absolutely hated a warm pillow. I would have difficulty falling asleep because by the time I had rested enough to almost fall asleep, the heat of my pillow would annoy me and wake me up. I would either flip the pillow or sleep on the other end. In other words, the average pillow had four sectors. By the time I was done with all four, the original sector had probably cooled down to normal and I could switch to it. I remember being awake for at least an extra hour some nights because of this.

I no longer have this problem, otherwise I would run out and buy the Chillow! A small, flat but otherwise pillow-shaped insert, the Chillow acts as a heatsink and radiator. It makes one side cold and one side a bit warm. The warmth is absorbed by the pillow proper and dissipated leaving the surface nice and chilly. Hell, I might buy one anyway!

  1. ohh, that would have been fabulous. for me it was my hands though. my face on top of the pillow didn’t have to be cold, but i loved sticking my hands under a cold pillow (that sounds kind of naughty…). i would move them around until i warmed it all up and then flip it over, but it never cooled down enough. glad to know i’m not the only weirdo.
