In recent decades people begin to pay more attention to the fact that sleep plays a key role in the life of a healthy person and sleep quality affects the ability of a person to make decisions quickly, stay focused and be in good shape.
What should be done to make a healthy sleep a part of our everyday life? There are several ways that will help to advance the quality of our sleep and one of them is the right sleeping position.
Which sleeping position is the best? No doubt the one, that you find the most comfortable, but at the same time doesn’t do any harm to your spinal column.
Sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your back is one of the less stressful positions and is good for those who have some spinal column problems. If you sleep on your back, it’s important to use the right sleeping pillow such as Save&Soft, to relieve neck and upper back tension, that could disturb you because of the wrong head position. Over time, the constant pressure can lead to the distortion of a cervical spine and cause serious health problems. People who have permanent back disorders prefer to put a pillow under knees to feel more comfortable. In any case, it’s better to consult a physician, which position is the best for you. So, people who have intervertebral disc diseases are not recommended to sleep on the back.
Sleeping on your side. An alternative sleeping position is sleeping on your side with your knees bent. When you sleep on your side it’s important to use a pillow that will support your head in a physiologically correct position. Side sleeping can also be helpful if you snore. This position is the best during pregnancy for those who has lumbar spine problems, as this position reduces lower back tension. It is suggestible for pregnant women, sleeping in this position, to put a pillow between the knees to achieve deeper relaxation. The pillow Save&Soft is just perfect for that, it will help you greatly not only during pregnancy but even after a baby will be born to feed it or to fix if a baby sleeps not in a baby cot.
Sleeping on your stomach. Usually doctors advice to sleep on the stomach as rare as possible. When you sleep on your stomach you should turn your head right or left to breathe freely. This may affect the cervical vertebrae significantly and also stretch muscles and ligaments on one side of the back or the other. At the same time when sleeping on stomach, the chest is under great pressure that may cause undesirable consequences and also have the unfavorable impact on lower back, thighs, legs and feet. Moreover, neck and shoulders muscles may be overstrained and you may begin to suffer from headaches.
