Not getting enough sleep can wreak havoc on your day. The sluggish, delayed reaction that only happens due to lack of sleep can be infuriating — especially if it’s a recurring occurrence, which it typically is.

Studies show that more than 18 million Americans are currently suffering from some form of sleep apnea, with a whopping 80% of cases going undiagnosed. If you’re not getting enough sleep at night, simple solutions like adding a different pillow can sometimes make all the difference. To help you count a little less sheep and catch a few more ZZZZs, here are the five best pillows to deal with sleep apnea.
