E. Joseph Cossman, entrepreneur and author, once said: “The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night’s sleep.” Most of us take good sleep for granted until we can no longer seem to have it. You may try staying away from the screens for an hour before bedtime, taking a hot shower, meditation, or even taking melatonin to help your body and mind fall asleep. While these are all excellent bedtime habits to try, you may not know how the position in which you sleep can affect your sleep quality. Some positions are better to sleep in than others, and finding the most comfortable one for you can make all the difference. This article will discuss the dos and don’ts of sleeping positions and why sleep positioning can be so important. With these tips, you can hopefully find your way back to the deep REM sleep your body needs. Good quality sleep is a huge factor in overall health, which we tell each of our clients at EW Motion Therapy. While our services may not fit your needs, we still want to discuss the best positions to rest and find your way to dreamland.
