What is the best sleeping position?

A woman sitting on a black couch in a modern room, wearing white clothes, stretches with her eyes closed and hand on her neck, appearing to relieve tension.

What is the best sleeping position?

A comfortable mattress is an extremely important factor for a good night’s sleep. However, it is not everything. The position in which you sleep is also important. Because the position of your body influences the way you feel when you wake up. Basically, our spine should be in a straight position. However, we know that this is not always possible. Many people with back problems or defects may have different recommendations. Moreover, we all have habits and sometimes it is difficult to get rid of them. Even if the result is better and more comfortable sleep.

Sleeping on your side is a good choice!

It can be said that sleeping on your side is good for your spine.

For better body ergonomics, pull your legs slightly. This way you will relax. If you mostly sleep on your side, we recommend placing a thin pillow between your legs to relieve pressure on your spine. It is a good idea to change sides: if you always sleep on your right side, you put pressure on your liver, whereas if you always sleep on your left side, you put pressure on your heart. On the other hand, if you notice that your arms or legs are in pain, this is a sign that you need to change your sleeping position.

On the back – the best choice!

Sleeping on your back is considered the healthiest position. This relieves tension in the neck, muscles and spine. The arms and legs are straight and the head is slightly raised so that you can breathe better. It is important not to put pressure on the organs or limbs to prevent numbness. This position allows the tired body to relax and regenerate. In addition, the blood circulates freely and reaches all the limbs. Above all, the supine position has benefits. However, if you suffer from sleep apnoea, it is unfortunately not advisable because it leads to hypoxia.

On the belly – the worst choice!

If you are in the habit of sleeping on your stomach, absolutely avoid it. This position puts pressure on the lower abdomen and internal organs. This can cause reflux of stomach contents, heartburn and reflux into the oesophagus. In addition, pressure is exerted on the neck and the lungs are strongly compressed. In the morning, one may wake up with sore ears or a headache. As you can see, sleeping on your stomach offers more benefits and progress. If you feel a hernia in your body in the morning, the position is probably to blame. Get your body used to a different position and sleep on your stomach as little as possible.

Inappropriate position – consequences

As can be seen, a wrong sleeping position can have unpleasant consequences in the morning. Excessive compression of organs, poor blood circulation or headaches are just some of the complaints.

Posture during sleep influences our entire body, something we often forget. If you feel tired in the morning, have headaches and back and neck pain, it means that your posture during sleep was wrong.

However, if you are being treated by a physiotherapist due to various conditions, please seek advice. It is possible that the indications differ from ours, which are aimed at people who do not have chronic back problems.

By combining our advice with the Sovea thermo-elastic mattress, we guarantee that the quality of your sleep and your well-being will improve considerably. The Sovea thermo-elastic mattress offers your body the right support and, by positioning it correctly, relieves pressure on your organs and takes the weight off your limbs and spine after a long day!
