What are the best sleeping positions

Your sleeping pose can have a major
impact on your slumberas well as your overall health. Poor p.m. posture could
potentially cause back and neck pain,
fatigue, sleep apnea, muscle cramping, impaired circulation, headaches,
heartburn, tummy troubles, and even premature wrinkles.

What are the best sleeping positions

The Foetus ( Sleeping on side, knees
bent, arms out)
: This is the most common positions
and also the best all-round to keep circulation strong and not put undue strain
on core body parts.

The starfish (Sleeping on the back,
legs out arms out )
: A slightly better position, if you
can try to take up as much space as possible, your body will be more relaxed.
However there is still a rirk of snoring.

The yearner (Sleep on side, legs
straight, arms out)
: A good position for the back
discs, muscles and ligaments. Try to not bend forward too much, as this can
lead to a slouch.

The soldier (Sleeping on the back,
legs straight, arms by side)
Not advised. This position has a high risk of snoring, and the tongue can fall
to the back of the throat.

The log (Sleeping on side, legs
straight, arms down)
: A good all around position which
keeps the spine in a neutral format. This position can prove hard to maintain
and also cause pins and needles for the arm under the body, so is not as good
as the Foetus.

The freefaller (Sleeping on the
front, head turned, arms up on the pillow)
Seen as the worst position due to a 90 degree neck angle with pins and needs in
the upturned hands.

Pregnancy: The best sleeping position for prefnancy is to sleep on
your side to help blood flow and reduce swelling in ankles, hands ang feet.

Sitting: The best position to improve oxygenation, however not
ideal as generally uncomfortable, and a position that feels unnatural.

Standing up: For the majority of us it is impossible to fall asleep
standing up due to a large strain on the knees. Mainly due to sleep deprivation
rather than good physical sleep.

Which sleeping positions are most
papular ?

  • Lying on the side with arms on the sides is 39%
  • Lying on the side with legs bent is 28%
  • Lying on the back with arms by the side is 15%
  • Lying on the stomach is 8%
  • Lying on the back with arms by the head is 5%
  • 5% finally is Unknown

Pillow placement

Sleeping on your stomach: Place a pillow under the hips to take stress off the lower
back and neck.

Sleeping on your side: Place a pillow under the head and neck with one between
the knees. This opens the hips ans prevents knees from knocking together.

Back sleeping: Place a pillow under the head and one beneath the knees.
This relieves pressure on the lower back.
