Have you been struggling to get to sleep? Or, maybe you haven’t been very comfortable in your bed at night. Or, maybe you are waking up with aches or pains because of sleeping the wrong way. In this article, I will help you through these struggles and give you some insight on sleeping better.
Sleeping on your back is the optimal way to sleep. You may wonder, why? For some, it may seem uncomfortable at first. Although, over time, your body will be thanking you. The first benefit of sleeping on your back is promoting good posture while your sleeping. That might sound a little awkward, but seriously, when you sleep on your back you are able to have spinal alignment by having your body in a neutral positioning. It helps you not twist and turn in your sleep, which causes aches and pains in your back and neck.
Another slightly odd benefit to sleeping on your back, is it could be preventing wrinkles. When pressing your face against a pillow, or really any surface, you develop sleep wrinkles. While sleeping on your back, you will not face these same issues. Age slower by sleeping on your back!
When your head is raised (on a pillow) while sleeping on your back, it can actually positively impact your nasal congestion. Your airways clear up when your head is propped up by draining the mucus out. Also, with your head being raised, acid reflux can also be relieved according to a study in the National Library of Medicine.
Sleeping on your back can prevent headaches, improve comfort, and also improve your breathing. There’s really nothing to lose by sleeping on your back, so I suggest it. The easiest way to improve your health is by making small changes for the better. I hope that I’ve left you with some insightful information that you can use.
