Sleeping Positions and Health: THIS is How You Should Sleep to Stay Healthy!

Sleep is very important for our physical and physically health. Due sleep, body is eliminating all toxins made through the day, repairs muscles and joints and etc.

For different ages have different needs of duration of the dream. But basically dream shall last 8 hours. There are many factors that can contribute to a good night’s sleep, including your sleep position.

1. The best position: On your back

Snoozing in savasana pose is a boon for spine and neck health, because the back is straight and not forced into any contortions. Plus back sleeping helps the mattress do its job of supporting the spine. In a perfect (and kind of uncomfy) world, everyone would sleep on their backs without a pillow, as this position leaves the neck in a neutral position. Using too many pillows, however, can make breathing more difficult.

2. The second best position: On your side

Side sleepers, unite! Whether they’re curling up in the cozy fetal position or lying straight on one side, the vast majority of people report sleeping on their sides (although since everyone is unconscious during sleep, this information can never be entirely accurate). At the same time, sleeping on the left side can put pressure on the stomach and lungs (alternating sides often can help prevent organ strain). And as almost all side-sleepers know well, this position can result in the dreaded squished-arm-numbness. You can also try a pillow under your waist and one between your legs to keep things in line.

3. The worst position: On your stomach

Stomach sleeping eases snoring and some cases of sleep apnea, but that’s pretty much the only good thing about going belly-down at night.  This position should be avoided in those who suffer from neck or back pain.

4.The second worst position: The fetal position

Sleeping on your side with your knees drawn up to your chest may be comforting, but it can lead to neck and back pain, as it puts strain on the back and joints. Experts believe the shoulder and neck should be aligned when sleeping, to promote the best sleep and prevent muscle and joint pain. Don’t forget to sleep in a dark, cool roomon a comfortable mattress and turn all electronics off at least an hour before bed. If you need a little white noiseto drown out the noisy streets, try a fan, a humidifier or a dehumidifier.
