According to the data of Sleep Foundation, most people spend a third of their lives in sleeping or resting. During sleep, the body rejuvenates and repairs itself. A good night's sleep is usually determined by the way you sleep, just like the sleep position. People with busy lives often do not get a good night's rest. It's important to get a soft position to help you fall asleep quickly. But everyone has their own preferred sleep position. What is the best position?
I know many people find lying on their backs comfortable because the weight of the body doesn't fall on the joints." Dr. Krahn, a sleep physician at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, “"Lying on your back means that your tongue and jaw press down and can crowd the airway. Therefore, people who lie on their backs are more likely to snore."
The best sleep position promotes a healthy spinal alignment from the hips all the way to the head. This usually depends on your personal health and the position you find comfortable. That is said, there are some positions that are considered healthier than others. Specifically, lying on your side or back is considered more beneficial than sleeping on your stomach. In these two sleep positions, it is easier to maintain spinal support and balance, which reduces stress on your spinal tissues and allows your muscles to relax and recover. 1 Nevertheless, give up the recommended sleeping position, if you feel uncomfortable after trying it. Everyone has a sleeping position that they are used to, and you can sleep better in a position that you are familiar with. Being able to get a comfortable sleep is our main goal. Just take it easy.
