According To Doctors, This Is The Best Position To Sleep In

Although there are pros and cons to each sleeping position, there is one way to sleep that doctors reign supreme. Sleeping on your back is seen as the healthiest position for your body. I mean, we all started out sleeping on our backs as babies, so why not continue it into adulthood?

The reason doctors prefer this position as opposed to sleeping on your side or stomach is because the benefits outweigh the cons. Back sleepers experience less neck and back pain because their bodies are kept in a neutral position throughout the night. Also, sleeping on your back prevents wrinkles and breakouts because your face isn’t being smushed against a pillow all night. Plus, you can precent sagginess in your breasts by sleeping on your back because you’ll be fully supported.

The best way to sleep on your back is with one puffy pillow. You want to keep your head supported but make sure it isn’t propped up too high. Also, with your head elevated you shouldn’t experience any acid reflux.

It’s important to take into consideration that sleeping on your back may increase your chance of snoring. Back sleeping is also closely associate to sleep apnea, but that is the only con to this sleeping position.

Give it a try and see if your body feels any different!
