What Is The Best Way To Sleep (Part 3)

Good Morning,

So in the last two articles we have been talking about the best ways to sleep.  We have discussed how to find your best bed and how to find the best pillow for your own personal needs.

Today I want to talk about one of the most commonly asked questions, “What is the best sleep position?”

The answer to this question is very simple.

The best position to sleep in is either on your back or on your side.  However, I would like to add a little detail that will change your life.

If you sleep on your back, take a pillow and place it under your knees.

If you sleep on your side, take a pillow and put it between your knees and then hug your partner or another pillow in your arms.

These two simple pillow techniques will help keep your spine aligned during the night and will make a world of difference in the quality of your sleep.  To see these postures demonstrated simply click this link:

Once there click on sleeping and you will see the demonstration.  Now the side sleeping doesn’t show the pillow being hugged but trust me, it helps.

Now as far as stomach sleeping is concerned…Not a good idea.  It compromises the stability of your low back and your neck and can reak havoc on your spine, especially if you are trying to recover from an injury.

If you are one of those people that “must” sleep on your stomach, then the best way to do it (although still not a great option) is to bend one of your knees and kick your leg out to the side, this will help remove some of the pressure from your spine.

So, I hope you try some of the information and techniques that we have discussed over the last three articles and tonight is a great nights sleep for you.

Have a great day!
