Why a Healthy Sleeping Position Is Important?

Feb Tue 23 2021

We all enjoy sleeping. But it often happens that while sleeping we wake up in the middle of the night experiencing pain in different parts of the body such as the neck and joints. Does it ever occur to your mind as to why this happens? There is only one answer. You are sleeping in the wrong position.

Yes, sleeping too requires some position. Different people indeed enjoy different positions to sleep. Some love sleeping on their stomach while some like to sleep on their back, whereas some sleep in the fetal position. But, sleeping on your side is the healthiest sleeping position as per reports. 

WHY SIDE-SLEEPING IS THE BEST? 

We know that lack of sleep makes us tired and drowsy. Our sleep position affects everything in our body, from the brain to the stomach. But, Sleeping on your side provides you a perfect sound sleep all night, every day. Peek into the benefits of side sleeping!    

Aids Digestion: During sleep our small intestine transmits waste to our large intestine by an ileocecal valve located in the lower right abdomen. This aids digestion. Sleeping on your back might cause constipation. 

Clears Waste: Brain waste can cause damage to our body and can lead to several brain-based illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Studies found out that brain wastes are cleared successfully when sleeping on the side rather than on the stomach and back. 

Easy Breathing: People sleeping on their back, stomach, and fetal position experience restricted breathing. Stomach-sleepers have a great probability of getting neck pain, joint pain, numbness, and tingling. People sleeping in the fetal position have their torso hunched and knees bend, which also restrict breathing. This is because they put their muscles and joints under too much pressure while sleeping. 

Reduces Heartburn: Studies show that sleeping on the left side effectively reduces heartburn than sleeping on the right side. Theorist believes that if we lie on the left side while we sleep, the stomach and its gastric juices remain lower than the esophagus. 

Boosts Brain Health: Sleep refreshes our body and soul. After a day’s work, our body and mind will be worn out. We need good sleep to charge our body to full energy. Sleeping on your right or left side helps with this.

Reduces Snoring or Sleep Apnea: Side sleeping helps your tongue to not fall into the throat and block your airway. This keeps you away from snoring and thereby from sleep apnea. 

You may have a favourite sleeping position, but change it up for your health. Sleep on your side for better health and better sleep. Just try it out for one night, and you will be amazed to see how energetically you wake up the next morning. Always remember, sleep is extremely important and healthiest sleep happens with the healthiest position.
