The three main sleeping positions, “Side, Back and Stomach”, are the most common sleep positions for North Americans, so these are the positions we will talk about. If you have any questions that extend past this post, please contact the closest store to you and a sleep expert with help you with any questions you have.
Sleep specialists recommend sleeping on your side as it will give you a more comfortable rest and can decrease the likelihood of interrupted sleep. There are many different variations to sleeping on your side, but all variations of it are beneficial in helping to alleviate insomnia, chronic sleep deficiency, and tossing and turning. The most comfortable side sleeping position is to bend the knees upwards toward the chest, placing a quality pillow between your legs to lighten the pressure on your hips and lower back.
This position is perfect for those with a bad back or pinched nerves. Sleeping on your side (especially the left side) has noted improvements in breathing, less to no pain in the lower back and is the recommended sleeping position for pregnant women. If you’re looking for a new mattress to suit your sleeping style, consider that Worldwide Mattress Outlet offers financing on all products in the store and has a 90 Night Sleep Guarantee to ensure that you’ve found the perfect mattress for you.
Sleeping on your back is the 2nd most used sleep positions, but did you know that it may cause the start of Sleep Apnea, can be the leading cause in lower back pain, and can interfere with normal sleep cycles? It’s not the worst way to sleep on a spring mattress, but on memory foam mattresses or waterbeds, sleeping on your back is highly recommended.
If you don’t have a mattress built for sleeping on your back, and you still continue to choose this sleeping position, there are a few small changes you can make that will help you sleep more thoroughly. Place a soft pillow or rolled up a towel under your knees and in the curve of your lower back to help the natural curve of the spine stay aligned. Ask a sleep expert at Worldwide Mattress Outlet on how to improve your sleep and remember to ask about a quality mattress that is made for you to sleep on your back.
If your sleep positions like sleeping on your stomach, I’m afraid you’re in for a bit of bad news…sleep professionals don’t recommend sleeping on your stomach as it causes strain on your lower back and can even cause unnecessary neck pain. While sleeping on your stomach can help you fall asleep, it won’t help you stay asleep. It forces your face into the mattress or pillow and can stifle your breathing as well as adding stress to your stomach and back.
The bottom line, sleeping on your stomach is not a good habit. But, if you are set on using this sleeping position, remember to use a soft pillow for your head/neck and another just under your belly to raise your behind in the air, as to align your spine in the best possible way for this position. Consider some new pillows for your mattress as it can greatly affect your sleep habit!
Remember, it doesn’t matter exactly how you sleep, as long as you are comfortable, wake up with no pain, and sleep through the night. We are all different, and because of that, there isn’t a perfect way to sleep, only suggestions on how to sleep better. If you’re having trouble sleeping in your new or old mattress, please talk to a sleep expert at Worldwide Mattress Outlet.
We will work with you to find the perfect mattress for you and make sure you’re getting the best possible night’s sleep you can!
