What Is The Best Sleeping Position?

Sleeping is one of the most important things for our health, it is our natural time for our bodies to detox and heal. Sleeping aids in memory processing and is vital for tissue growth and development of the brain.

On average, we spend a third of our life sleeping, so it’s important to understand how to get the most out of this precious time. We all find comfort in different ways, different sleeping positions, bedding, decor, music, bedtime rituals and bedroom-rules can all make a difference to our sacred sleep time.

Knowing and understanding the position you sleep in can be very important, especially if you often wake up with aches, pains, numbness or have issues with snoring or Sleep Apnea.

 

Tips for Back sleepers

  • If you sleep on your back but still have lower back pain it is advisable to place a soft pillow under your knees to allow the natural curvature of the spine.
  • Try to find another sleeping position, such as on your side if having issues with snoring or Sleep Apnea.
  • Expecting mothers should avoid sleeping on their backs, as this can put pressure on the lower back which can cause fainting.

 

Tips for side sleepers

  • To avoid sore joints and pressure on hips, consider a memory foam or gel mattress to relieve the pressure and to properly support your body.
  • Placing a pillow in between your knees will alleviate strain on hips.

 

Tips for Stomach Sleepers
