– Sleeping on your back with your hands at your sides is considered to be the best sleeping posture. This posture is similar to the Savasana pose in yoga. It’s the perfect position to rest the spine, neck, and arms.
– Starfish position is a variation of the back-sleeper position. In this position, a person lies on their back with their arms up on both sides of their head and their feet spread apart. It reduces the chance of getting headaches.
– While sleeping in the log position, you lie on your side with both arms positioned downward in a straight line. It is advisable to sleep on your left side because it’s better for your vital organs. It’s the ideal sleeping position for the spine as it receives complete support in its natural curve.
– Sleeping on your side with your legs slightly bent, arms outstretched, and head slightly off-center is known as the yearner posture. It is advisable to lie on your left side because, as we said before, it’s better for your vital organs.
– The fetal position involves lying on your side with your knees drawn toward your chest and your chin tilted down. It is the most popular sleeping position among women — over 41% of respondents claim to prefer this posture.
– Lying flat on your stomach while sleeping is not the best sleeping position, and most experts advise against it. It puts a strain on the spine and causes pain in the neck and lower spine.
– Upright position. Buddhist monks do it and swear by it! They even use a little box to help them accomplish this upright sleeping position. In our modern world, sleeping in a sitting position with the head raised can be accomplished with the help of a recliner or large wedge pillow.
