Everyone wishes a nice bath and a comfortable bed after a long and tiring day at work full of running everywhere all the time and standing. Numerous people refer to their beds as something sacred, because there they can relax and be completely peaceful. Averagely, a person should sleep at least 8 hours a day, so this fact claims that we are passing about a third of our lives sleeping.
Nighttime sleep and nocturnal peace cannot be replaced. We must maintain our health and well-being, mentally and physically, so it’s very important to have a perfect position to sleep.
People prefer many different ways of sleeping. The most common ones include sleeping on the left or the right side, on your back, and curled up in fetal position. Each one of these positions affects your health in different ways which can be good or bad. Sleeping on the back can be dangerous for people who have asthma and/or sleep apnea. It increases the risks associated with breathing difficulties. Sleeping on the right side can aggravate digestive problems and end up making them a lot worse. These negative effects and issues are the ones that lead to lower quality sleep, but also less amounts of it.
The best position to sleep in is sleeping on the left side because it has the greatest benefits for our bodily health. It can help us digest better and easier. It improves the overall digestive system by allowing the body to extract nutrients and dispose of toxins faster and more efficiently. It also affects our circulation and cardiovascular health because the heart is better able to pump downhill and the blood circulates more efficiently back to the heart.
Our bile and wastes travel more freely through the body and helps improve spleen function while we’re in this left side position. We have a better lymphatic drainage, so more toxins leaving the body, with less overall stress and negative impacts to our health. The position we sleep in can really make a difference in our body and overall health.
If you are not sleeping on your left side already, try to make the switch as soon as possible. We all have our own way of sleeping, but everything can change. We can all try and train our body to sleep on the left side by switching on a light that’s located on the right side of where you sleep. Your body will then naturally want to face away from the light source and you’ll turn on to the left side. Numerous people have already tried this and many other ways to effectively change sleep positions. The choice is yours.
Sleeping on the left side is definitely the most helpful for our body and the whole organism, so why don’t you try changing habits today and start doing it!
