Our well-being depends not only on how long and on what we sleep, but also in what position. These or those poses in which people sleep can cause snoring, pain in the neck and back. And this affects the health, performance and mood of a person. Favorite postures during sleep may not be the best.
Sleeping on your stomach is not recommended if you have back problems. In addition, breathing difficulties may occur. If you sleep on your back, you risk waking your relatives with snoring. Despite this, sleep poses in which a person lies on his back are recommended by doctors as the most harmless to health. In this position, the muscles are relaxed as much as possible, the load is removed from the neck and spine, the joints also relax and rest. In addition, the work of the gastrointestinal tract improves in this position.
If your favorite sleeping position is on your stomach or side, then you inevitably “wrinkle” your face, which leads to wrinkles. Beauticians in Hollywood argue that the face of a person can always determine which side he likes to sleep on. In this case, we again save the pose on the back, which preserves the youthfulness of the face.
Perhaps, only in two cases can it be undesirable. One of the minuses, as already mentioned, is snoring. If a person is prone to snoring, then it is the sleeping postures on the back that exacerbate this deficiency. The sleeping person himself does not hear this, but those around him cannot fall asleep.
Secondly, a posture on the back is contraindicated in people with diseases of the respiratory system (asthma, runny nose). In this position, the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream decreases, which can contribute to a deterioration in well-being.
The pose on the side, according to doctors, is the second most beneficial that it brings to the body. The main plus of this sleeping posture is the solution to the problem of snoring. Also, this position is favorable for pregnant women: if you sleep on your left side, blood circulation improves and, therefore, a constant flow of blood to the embryo is ensured. In addition, the kidneys work well in this position, which is extremely important for pregnant women.
The disadvantages of this pose are:
- load on the neck and shoulders, so it is necessary to choose a pillow that will keep the neck at body level;
- the appearance of wrinkles on the left side of the face.
The abdominal position is very harmful to the male. Firstly, the body is minimally relaxed, wrinkles, neck pains may appear earlier, some in this position begin to grit their teeth.
Secondly, there is a deterioration in blood circulation in the internal organs. According to statistics, about 40% of sexual disorders are caused precisely by the habit of sleeping on the stomach.
I must say that the postures in which people sleep together are different from those of people who are used to sleeping alone. If the other half is sleeping next to the person, then he takes a pose that can reflect this or that stage of the relationship. To interpret the postures of sleep together, you just need to know body language. So, you can easily find out what the one you like feels for you. Couples experiencing an early fall in love usually sleep tightly hugging each other.
The newlyweds, who are very happy together, are characterized by the “spoon” pose. There are also other poses for couples, each with its own meaning: “Chanel”, “back to back”, “cradle”, “untouched” “waiting”, “roof”.
