Which Sleep Position is Healthiest?


Your "favorite" sleep posture may cause you back and neck pains, stomach problems, even premature wrinkles.

Here we will discuss the best positions for your body while sleeping and the ones which are best to avoid.

The best position is sleeping on your back. This is good for preventing back and neck pains, reduces wrinkles and is beneficial for preserving the shape of your breasts.

This pose allows your support areas (head, neck, spine) to remain in a neutral position. Sleeping on your back denies any further distortions of the body.

In addition, this way of sleeping reduces acids due to the correct position of the internal organs. The only downside is that sleeping on your back leads to snoring.

The next best sleeping position is sleeping on your side. The benefits are the same as sleeping on your back with the difference being that snoring is decreased. This is the most suitable posture for pregnant women.


Experts recommend for expecting mothers to sleep on their left side, since this improves blood circulation.

The fetal position (with the knees near the head) is also good for pregnant women. However, in this type of posture you won't reduce neck and back pains. You also won't save yourself from wrinkles.

In fact, a downside to this position is the formation of wrinkles on one side of your face. Another minus is the distortion of the shape of the breasts, which do not remain as firm as when sleeping on your side.

The worst of all positions is sleeping on your stomach. It puts additional strain on the neck and spine, flattens the bust and the pressure of the pillow on the skin leads to the formation of wrinkles.

The only plus is that snoring is practically impossible in this position.
