Sleep posture is imprtant to get a good night sleep

Submitted by Dr. Larry Cole

No one has given enough emphasis to posture while you sleep. If you don't get a good night sleep. The next day can be non-productive. Posture while you sleep is essential. Side sleeping is best.

As we roll over in our sleep, we need to adopt a posture that allows us to turnover easily.

Start in the coma position, that is on one side. If we start on the right side, place the left leg in a bent posture in front of the right leg.

The right arm is bent at the elbow with the upper arm at right angles to your body. The arm is then placed across the body and the hand fits neatly on the left shoulder.

This is the tricky bit. Most people will want to put their left arm under the pillow, but this hinders you rolling over. If you have the left arm under the pillow, when your body wants to roll over, you struggle with the pillow and usually you turn facing the mattress.

However if you put your left arm straight down your body, you can easily turn over. The body turns facing the ceiling without anything restricting the turn.

Accordingly your sleep is not interrupted and you wake up refreshed.

Try it - it works. It takes a little while to get the arm from under the pillow, but once you have succeeded, you will never put your arm under the pillow again.

Right or left? Comments By: uno on 2004-11-03
If you sleep on your stomach or on your left side, you are putting
pressure on your heart with the extra body weight, while the heart has
to continue pumping blood as usual.

This additional burden wears the heart out more quickly. Think about it - you spend more than one third of your life sleeping! To reduce the strain on your heart, sleep on your right side, or on
your back. This simple technique will add years to your life.
