What does your sleep position say about you?

WHAT DOES YOUR SLEEPING POSITION SAY ABOUT YOU?

MOST COMMON SLEEPING POSITIONS

Professor Chris ldzikowski. one of Britain’s leading sleep experts, has identified six different positions

Foetus 41% Curled up on the side + holding pillow
Log 14% Side with legs straight + arms down
Yearner 13% Side with legs straight + arms Out
Starfish 5% On their back with arms + legs Out
Soldier 8% On their back, legs straight + arms on side
Freefalter 7% Face up with head turned + arms on pillow

SLEEPING POSITIONS AND PERSONALITIES

Experts have discovered a direct link between people's favorite sleeping position and their personalities

Foetus

The foetus sleepers are gruff people initially but with warm and open hearts. Appear tough but are sensitive to the core.
Takes a while to warm up but once he does you are more relaxed.

Log

The log sleepers are very relaxed and sociable individuals.

Yearner

The yearner sleepers are reserved which means they are open to new things but very suspicious and cynical people. Once they make up their minds, they stick to it.

Starfish

The starfish sleepers tend to be very good listeners. Very friendly but don’t like to be the center of attention and prefer others to take the limelight.

Soldier

The Soldier sleepers tend to be quiet and reserved. They set very high standards for themselves.

Freefaller

The freefaller sleepers tend to be very confident but have a very nervous personality. Respond badly to criticism. Very good at making quick decisions.


SLEEPING POSITIONS AND HEALTH

Idzikowski also believes that the awkward sleeping positions we get ourselves into, can have impact on our health - both good and bad.

FACT
One arm or leg sticking out from under the quilt is Britain’s favourite position, followed by both feet poking out the end.

FACT!
Certain personality difficulties associated with the Freefall position, the position is good for digestion. Starfish and Soldiers are more Likely to have a bad night sleep and snore.

BEST POSITIONS

Back positions

Prevents neck and back pain, reduces acid reflux, minimizes wrinkles, and helps maintain perky breasts. However, it is a bad position in terms of snoring.

->Starfish
Risk of snoring

->Soldier
High risk of snoring



OK Positions

Side positions
Generally regarded as best for health. Steeping on the side prevents neck and back pain and also reduces snoring.

->Foetus
Most common position.
Less snoring.
Neck and back pain.

->Log
Good overall position.
Keeps spine in a neutral format.

->Yearner
good position for the back disks, muscles and ligaments

Worst Positions

->Stomach positions
Best for digestion as lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth. However this is also the worst position due to a 90 degree neck angle.

->Freefall
Eases snoring, but bad for everything else. Puts pressure on joints and muscles, which can irritate nerves and lead to pain, numbness, and tingling.
