Sleeping Positions

Imelda of My Daily Business tagged me. She wants to know what my sleeping position says about me. I took the quiz and the answer is…

Your Sleeping Position Says You Need Your Sleep

You have a passion for everything – including sleeping.
Outgoing and brash, you tend to still shock those who know you well.
You tend to be selfish. You are the most likely type to take over the whole bed.
You gravitate toward comfort and don’t like extreme situations.
If you don’t get enough sleep, you are: In a very bad mood
It’s hard to sleep next to you because: You hog the covers.

There are six sleeping positions according to Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the UK Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service.

  • The Fetus- curled up on your side holding pillow. The most popular sleeping position.
  • The Soldier- flat on your back with arms on your side.
  • The Starfish- lying on your back with arms and legs out stretched.
  • The Log- lying on your side with both arms down by your side.
  • The Yearner- lying on the side with both arms out in front.
  • The Free-Faller- flat on your stomach with arms on the head or ears.

The best sleeping position is sleeping on your right side. Sleeping on the right side frees the heart to supply blood more easily. This is particularly helpful for the flow of blood to the liver, thus facilitating improved metabolism. Sleeping flat on one’s stomach is not good because this causes pressure on the lungs, heart and other organs. Sleeping on the left side is not good because this causes too much pressure on the heart. Sleeping on your back more likely to lead to snoring and bad night’s sleep. (source)
