Sleeping Positions & Your Personality
What Your Sleeping Position Reveals About Your Personality
Foetus, log and yearner – „Invariably the side position is generally regarded as best for health, though advice going back to Greek times, or found in Yoga scripts is to lie on the right so that you’re not putting pressure on the heart. However, some medieval texts suggested that half of sleep time should be spent on the right and the other half on the left.“
Starfish and Soldier – „These poses involve sleeping on the back which tends to increase snoring and more serious problems with breathing, as well as stomach reflux and curiously with sleep paralysis (waking up in the morning paralysed and being unable to move for a few seconds)“. „Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don’t like to be the centre of attention.
„Freefall – „This position is best for digestion as lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth, while those who lie on their back may end up snoring and breathing less well during the night.“ „Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don’t like criticism, or extreme situations.“
