You know that getting the right amount of sleep each night is essential, but did you know that your position can also affect your health and well-being? Here are the best ways to sleep to address your specific concerns. 

Sleep on Your Side to Breathe Easier 

Have you noticed that you snore more on your back? It’s not a coincidence. Sleeping on your side often takes care of snoring, and snoring is often the result of sleep apnea which can increase your risk of strokes, heart attacks, and more. 

Ease Back Pain by Sleeping on Your Back 

Keeping your back’s natural curves and spinal alignment is easiest done by laying on your back with a rolled towel or pillow under your knees and a pillow suitable for your neck. 

Boost Your Brain While Sleeping on Your Side 

During the day, toxic byproducts of your brain’s activity accumulate in your nervous system and are flushed away during sleep. Studies have shown that the best position for clearing that waste is on your right side. 

Sleep on Your Right Side to Protect Your Heart 

When lying on your left side, the heart shifts with the pull of gravity enough to show up in heart tests. However, by sleeping on the right side, the tissues of the lungs and other structures hold the heart in place, so heart rhythms remain healthy and normal. 

Get Better Digestion on Your Left Side 

If you have heartburn or acid reflux, sleeping on your left side often makes it a bit better by taking pressure off the stomach. You can also sleep with your head slightly elevated to get even more relief.
