8 Sleeping Positions & Their Effects On Health

In what position do you sleep most often? It turns out this is a very important question. Getting enough sleep is the most important thing – but did you know that how you sleep can also impact your health?

Sleeping on your back with your arms at your side is generally considered to be the best sleeping position for spine health and it’s good for your neck too, as long as you don’t use too many pillows.

That said, back sleepers tend to snore more than those in any other position and sleep apnea is strongly associated with sleeping on the back.

Let’s take a look at eight common sleeping positions and what they do to your body:

1-on-back-arms-sides

2-on-back-arms-up

3-face-down

4-fetal-position

5-on-side-arms-sides

6-on-side-arms-out

7-right-side

8-pillow-supplemented
