Travel pillows are a quintessential part of a long flight. But if you thought that you were wearing the travel pillow right all your life, this TikTok video going viral is going to be an eye-opener. The TikTok video proves that we were sleeping wrong on our flights. In all your long-haul flights, you probably had to find the perfect position to use your travel pillow. However, the right way of wearing it is to wear it from the front and not backward.

The TikTok user @Sidneyraz shows us how to sleep a little more comfortably while we’re 36,000 feet in the air. If you own the classic C-shaped neck pillows you must be putting the closed part on the back of your neck and the open part on the front. However, according to @Sidneyraz, you’re actually supposed to do exactly the opposite. Who would have thought?
