Are you a back sleeper, a side sleeper or a stomach sleeper? How you sleep can be affecting your health and the amount of sleep you’re getting each night.
- Stomach Sleeper – Don’t sleep on your stomach – this can cause neck and back pain and keep you up all night tossing and turning to comfortable. It is especially dangerous for you if you are overweight and you snore or suffer from sleep apnea.
- Back Sleeper – Sleeping on your back is okay. It can prevent back and neck pain if you prop your head correctly with pillows. It can help with reflux as long as your head is higher than your stomach.
- Side Sleeper – Sleeping on your side is optimal. Left or right doesn’t really matter. With the proper pillow fluff you can sleep through the night easily without hurting your neck and back.
