Stop Sleeping On Your Side: 5 Reasons

Which sleeping position is the healthiest? Why should you sleep on your back, not your stomach? People don’t really pay attention to their sleeping position, just whatever’s comfortable enough to get them into dreamland faster. Well, according to doctors, you really should be paying attention. Here are 5 reasons why you should never sleep on your stomach or side!

It strains your muscles and joints.​

If you sometimes find yourself waking up with a crick in your neck, some lower back pain, or aches in your hips or knees, then it could be because you’re sleeping on your stomach or side rather than your back.

It compresses your organs.

Stomach- and side-sleepers are also compressing their organs, which doesn’t exactly do your system any good. Side sleeping is especially risky because it prevents your diaphragm from moving freely, which can eventually cause lung problems.

It can contribute to worsening heartburn.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, sleeping on your stomach can exacerbate heartburn. So if the pain of chronic heartburn and acid reflux keeps you up at night, you might wanna try turning over to sleep on your back or on your left side.

It can damage your nerves.

When you rest your head on your shoulder or arm as you sleep on your side, you’re also pressing on the nerves that run through the top of your shoulder and down your arm. This can result in finger numbness throughout the day, which is bad for whatever work you have to do that day with your hands.

You can get premature wrinkles.

Smushing half your face into a pillow can, according to dermatologist Dr. Jamie Davis, focus wrinkles onto whichever side of your face spends more time being smushed. Sleeping on your back not only prevents this from happening but also lets your skin breathe throughout the night.

Some other good sleep habits to adopt.

-If you tend to fall asleep easily and stay asleep the whole night but still wake up feeling stiff, then try adding some 5- to 10-minute stretching into your morning routine.

- If you wake up in the middle of the night with leg cramps, then try stretching before bed to make sure the muscle isn’t tight. You could also try massaging it or applying a heating pad.

- Making sure your room is comfortable also helps. So if you can, adjust your thermostat to between 68 and 71°F. This is the recommended room temperature for the best-quality sleep.
