DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE POSTURE IN WHICH YOU USUALLY SLEEP SAYS ABOUT YOU?

On the side, face down or stretched face up: in what position do you usually sleep? And most importantly, do you know what this position says about you? The book  Sleep Positions: The Night Language of the Body by  the expert Samuel Dunkell has made us very interested in this subject.Today we share with you what we have learned and we tell you which position is the best for your body.

Sleeping position

1. FETAL AND SIDE POSITION

This side position is quite common and visually resembles the position of an embryo in the uterus.The knees tend towards the chest, the head leans forward and the arms are usually placed around the pillow. This side position is usually recommended to pregnant women and people who snore.People with back and neck problems, on the other hand, should opt for a position that puts less effort on their back, such as sleeping on their backs.

2. SEMIFETAL AND SIDE POSITION

Sleeping on the side in a semi-fetal position is considered the best sleeping position. About 60% of people sleep in this position, with the body and legs slightly bent (in contrast to the fully fetal position). Did you know that there is a difference if you sleep on the left side or the right side? If you have heartburn problems you should not sleep on the right side, as it will make the reflux worse.Sleep on the left side, this will be better for the stomach and also for the heart.

3. FACE DOWN

With the face twisted to the side and the arms stretched over the head or around the pillow. For some people this is the most comfortable position. But the fact is that there are very few people who sleep like that. From the medical point of view, this position has its pros and cons: it is better for digestion, but it does not help the natural curve of the spine.

4. FACE UP

You lie face up, looking at the ceiling and arms on both sides: this position is also known as “the real one” or “the one of the soldier”. According to experts, sleeping on your back is the healthiest for your spine and neck (of course, only if you do not put on too many pillows). But one skinny point of sleeping on your back is that people tend to snore. An interesting fact is that only children, work addicts or entrepreneurs are the ones who usually sleep on their backs.

THIS IS WHAT THE POSITION IN WHICH YOU SLEEP SAYS ABOUT YOU

No matter what position you sleep in, the most important thing is that you are comfortable and that you can rest well. Goodnight!🙂
