To get the best out of your daily night sleep, one should not only ensure that the S‘-shape of the spine is properly supported, but also have good blood circulation during the sleep.
There are three main sleep positions — back, stomach and side.During a night’s sleep, most people use more than one position. There may be several sleeping positions that one might find comfortable and at the same time ensure proper blood flow. Having a correct sleeping position prevents stiffness and soreness one might experience in the morning. A proper sleeping position can effectively relieve any back strains, as the sleeping position determines which part of the body comes in contact with the mattress. This in turn determines the amount of the body‘s stress. If one is frequently experiencing headaches when waking up, changing the sleeping position might just do the trick. Use of a pillow can also help provide additional support and take pressure off certain parts of the body.
