Sleep Smart For A Healthy Life


Your most loved sleeping pose could be giving you back and and neck pain, tummy troubles, even premature wrinkles. Discover the best positions for your body, plus the one you may want to avoid.

GOOD: SLEEPING ON THE BACK
Prevents neck and and back pain by maintaining a neutral position for head, neck and spine.
Reduces acid reflux by keeping your head elevated above your stomach.
Minimizes wrinkles as nothing pushes against your face.

Bad for: Snoring

Your perfect pillow: 1 puffy one. To keep your head and neck supported without propping your head up too much.

OK: SLEEPING ON THE SIDE
Reduces snoring by elongating your spine.
Reduces acid reflux by keeping your head elevated above your stomach.
Useful during pregnancy, sleeping on the left side is ideal for blood flow.

Bad for: Face and breasts. Constant mushing of face from one side, and sagging of breasts is promiment.

Your perfect pillow: 1 thick one. To fill the space above your shoulder so your head and neck are supported in a neutral position.

BAD: FETAL POSITION
Increases arthritic pain, when knees are bent for along time during night, bad neck and spine posture.
Restricts diaphragmatic breathing.
Premature facial wrinkles and too much stress of the face and breasts.

Useful during pregnancy

Your perfect pillow: 1 thick one. To fill the space above your shoulder so your head and neck are supported in a neutral position.

AVOID: SLEEPING ON THE STOMACH
Difficult to maintain a neutral spine position.
Puts pressure on joints and muscles which can irritate nerves and lead to pain, numbness, and tingling.
Constant incorrect head position may lead to aching. Keeping the face down keeps your upper always more open. So if you snore and arent suffering from neck or back pain, it's fine to try sleeping on your belly.

Your perfect pillow: Either a 1 thin one or none at all.
