Most people adopt random sleeping positions.
They’ll often try more than one pose. They’ll switch between side positions and curled up fetal positions. Others may sleep on their stomachs or backs.
As a result, some people cannot sleep at night. Others are semi-awake, where they toss and turn. And by morning, they wake up exhausted and sore.
We don’t recommend random sleeping positions. The reason being, picking the right sleeping positions can improve your health.
What You Should Do…
We have good news for you. There’s a way to make your sleeping quality better.
You can improve your sleep in a way that eases many bodily functions. This includes digesting food, cognitive functions, better oxygen use, and blood circulation.
The method we recommend for you is sleeping on your left side.
We consider that to be the best sleeping position. And we have 3 reasons that we’ll list below on why you should sleep on your left side.
So to get started…
1 – Improves your Digestion.
Many assume that if you eat right before sleep, your food won’t be digested all night. And this may lead to weight gain.
That opinion is incorrect. The body will continue to digest food whether you are sleeping or not.
Also, eating a midnight snack gives your body the fuel necessary for many processes while being asleep.
Digestion happens no matter what. You can be asleep or awake, and your food will be digested.
However, in this situation, you want to sleep on your left side.
Why? The reason for that is your stomach’s position.
Your stomach is positioned on the left side of your abdomen. This allows food to easily pass out of your stomach and into your intestines.
Another reason is digestive comfort.
Sleeping on your left side stops your stomach from pressuring the top of your pancreas. And this allows enzymes to flow better through your digestive system.
