It’s probably been a while since you were last travelling far enough to need a nap on the go but as holiday planning starts up again, you might want to take this tip on board.

While most of us put a travel pillow around the back of our neck and lie back, one man says that’s wrong and there could be a much comfier position.

He says that by moving it round to the front of your neck, it supports your head better as you snooze off.

Posting on TikTok, the man, who goes by @Sidneyraz, shows how it sits under your chin as you fall forward, which it tends to do when you are sitting up.

He said: ‘Here’s something I wish I knew before I was in my 30s. Travel pillows go in front.

‘Mm, I’m so comfy.’

He adds: ‘You can actually sleep on a flight.’

The video has racked up 12 million views and many had never realised how much better it is.

Of course, if you like it at the back, you can keep it that way but if your travel pillow has never seemed quite right, it’s worth giving the tip a go.

One person wrote: ‘This is probably why I always found them so uncomfortable.’

Another added: ‘Yeh at the back they push your head forward in a weird position, and if you’re short and the seat is formed, it is worse.’

‘Omfg I knew something was wrong because it was too large for the seat,’ someone else said.
