There’s no such thing as a “Magic Sleep Position”, but there are some things you should know about the various sleep position options.
1. Stomach Sleeper
Sleeping on your stomach is the worst position out of the three major sleep positions. Sleeping on your stomach puts undue stress and strain on your neck and lower back. If you can rig yourself up with pillows to adjust, that may help with alignment, but ultimately it’s probably going to be hard to stay comfortable on your stomach throughout the night.
2. Back Sleeper
Sleeping in odd positions can cause you to end up with pain and stiffness that has lasting effects throughout the day and night. Sleeping on your back is best for spinal alignment. However, sleeping on your back puts you at risk for snoring which impacts sleep quality for you and everyone around you. So, if you do snore, then sleeping on your back is probably not the best for you.
3. Side Sleeper
Side sleeping is best in terms of keeping your airway open if you have sleep apnea or if you snore. However, Side Sleeping can be an issue for spinal alignment. You can remedy that by sleeping with a pillow between your knees to align your hips properly, and often that’s all it takes to correct that issue. Also, many physicians suggest that sleeping on your left side is much better for you than sleeping on your right. Left side sleeping reduces stress on the heart and helps improve blood circulation for deeper healthier sleep.
