Sleep is one of the most important part
 of our existence. An average human being sleeps around 25 years (yeah, you read it correctly).
So its extremely important for us to sleep in a proper posture.

The most important thing to do in order to improve your sleep posture is to choose positions that helps keep your spine in alignment.

A lot of chronic problems like headaches, back pain, heartburn, sleep apnea, and/or fatigue gets exacerbate.

The best posture to sleep is either on your back or on your side

When sleeping on your back you can also place a pillow underneath your knees to make sure your back is in the optimal position.

When sleeping on your side place a pillow between your knees in order to keep your hips aligned, and to prevent you from twisting to rest your knee on the mattress.

If you are a stomach sleeper, then you likely need to work the most to improve your sleep posture, as this is typically considered the worst sleeping posture. Sleeping on your stomach forces you to turn your head to the left or to the right, creating pressure on the spine. If you use a pillow, it also pushes your head higher than the rest of your spine. This can lead to pain, numbness, and tingling.
If you still are unable to correct the posture, you can place a thin pillow underneath your pelvis and stomach to try and take some of the pressure off of your neck.

  • I Avenue choosing the right position to be so important to really take care of this next time and this post was very insightful

  • This is an insightful read. You know most pregnant women are asked to sleep with a U mattress or with a pillow in between the legs. But that’s that, I never knew sleeping posture could be so vital.
