This sleeping positions helps you tremendously to reduce the way you snore.

Best sleeping positions 

Let’s face it. Sleep is a big part of our lives — even if we’re not getting eight hours — but there’s more to it than you might think. If you’re having problems getting enough sleep or have an injury, there’s more to it than laying down. Your sleep position plays a big role in your sleep quality, which means it might be time for you to switch it up.


Different sleep positions have different benefits .

If you’re struggling with pain or other health issues, you might need to switch your sleep position in order to help manage it. And, while it might not be something you can do in one night, it can definitely be worth trying out.


Taking the time to gradually train yourself to sleep in a new position could be the secret to improving your sleep quality. However, if that’s something you aren’t comfortable with, don’t stress about it. You can also try modifying your favorite sleep position to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.


Every individual is different. What’s important is that you’re doing what works for your body and your sleep needs.


Fetal position 

There’s a reason why this is the most popular sleep position. The fetal position has loads of benefits. Not only is it great for lower back pain or pregnancy, sleeping in the fetal position can help reduce snoring.


Unfortunately, sleeping in the fetal position does have a few downsides. Make sure your posture is relatively loose, otherwise your comfy position could limit deep breathing while you snooze. Also, if you have any issues with joint pain or stiffness, sleeping in a tight fetal position might leave you sore in the morning.

Sleeping on your side 

As it turns out, sleeping on your side is actually pretty good for you — especially if you’re sleeping on your left side. Not only can it help reduce snoring, it’s great for your digestion and might even reduce heartburn.


An older study looked at 10 people over the course of two days. The first day, participants rested on their right side after eating a high-fat meal. On the second, they switched to the left side. While this was a small study, researchers discovered that sleeping on the right side increased heartburn and acid reflux, which suggests it could be a good reason for switching sides at night.


Sleeping on your side, on the other hand, may not always be the best. Not only can it cause stiffness in your shoulders, it can also lead to jaw tightness on that side. Plus, research suggests that sleeping on your side could contribute to wrinkles.


Putting a pillow between your lower legs will help better align your hips to avoid low back pain.

Bad sleeping position

Lying on the front of the body is usually considered the worst sleeping posture. However, for those who struggle to sleep in another position, placing a slim pillow underneath the stomach and hips can help improve spinal alignment.

Always remember to consider your dinner hour.
