How Do You Sleep?

By Jake | In Health & Lifestyle | on February 15, 2014


There is no doubt that each and every one of us has a favorite sleeping position. I know I do. I am the most comfortable when I am sleeping on my side with my knees partly bent. This position is also known as the fetus position. The times that I am completely wiped out I will fall asleep in the freefall position. The people that fall asleep in this position will lie on their bellies with arms under their pillows. In the freefall I will most likely drool because the position of my head. Once and a great while I tend to knock out lying on my back. Also known as the solider position, people who sleep like this will have arms and legs straight down and close to the body. The most common trait while sleeping in the soldier position will be to snore. I am definitely guilty of this, just ask Ashley B.  In the following link you will see the 6 most common sleeping positions.

Most likely we all fit into one of these categories of sleep positions. Below are a few facts (in a sleep study of 1,000 people) of each sleeping position.

Fetus position- Most common position and women are twice as likely to sleep like this.

Freefall position- Best position for digestion.

The Log position- For those who are capable to sleep like this also have the best chances of keeping the spine straight. This position is tied to those who have back problems.

Yearner position- Can alleviate issues with acid reflux.

The Soldier- As I mentioned above, people who fall asleep here tend to have a snoring problem.

The Starfish- Since this position is similar to the Soldier, except for arm positioning, people could possibly have snoring problems as well.

Although each person is different, these facts may not even apply. Most of us stay in the same spot all through the night. Where do you fit among the 6 most common sleeping positions?
