How do you sleep? Sleeping Positions Can Affect Your Health. Did you know that certain sleeping positions are bad for you? Well they are. I'm a side sleeper, but every morning I wake up on my back. Here's what the article I used for this story has to say.
Back sleepers are considered to be the luckiest of them all. This position is the best when it comes to a stable spine during sleep, it helps preserve its flexibility and healthy condition. The only disadvantage is that people who are prone to snoring will find that this posture increases its occurrence.
A large number of people prefer to sleep on their sides. Whether its left or right side, this position is very common. You might find that you tend to roll around in your sleep a lot, to prevent your arms or legs getting numb. If you are a heavy sleeper who stays in one position for the whole night, laying on your right side all the time can cause stomach issues, such as reflux.
If you sleep on your belly, you need to be mindful of your pillow and your neck area, if possible. Many back issues and pain originate from the neck vertebrae, which is very tense in this position. If you find that you can’t make yourself sleep any other way, make sure you invest in a pillow specifically designed for belly sleepers, for a healthy spine.
I don't know if you agree with this, so tell us if you agree or disagree. Being a side sleeper, I did have issues with reflux. After my heart surgery they stopped. So tell us, how do you sleep?
