Heyyy guys its LifeOfA and in todays blog post I am going to be talking about what your sleeping position reveals about you. So if you would like to find out more then continue reading…

Side Sleepers

Sleeping like a log on one side with arms straight down to the side was seen in about 15% of the survey and is considered the favored of people who are easy-going, trusting, gullible, but may be inflexible in their thinking.

Yearners, those who sleep with their arms straight out were about 13% of people, and though open-minded and eager, may be cynical, suspicious, stubborn and quick to give up. People who prefer side sleep position often wake up stiff and sore and may benefit from stretching both at night and in the morning.

Fetal Position

The fetal position is lying on the side with knees pulled towards the chest was the most popular, particularly with women. Over 41% of the people in the study reported sleeping in this position which is considered to be an effort to comfort themselves at the end of the day.

Associated traits include a soft interior which is camouflaged by a tough exterior, shy but warm, conscientious, organized and ready to face the day. Adding a pillow between the knees may be beneficial for people who prefer this sleep position.

Back Sleepers

Soldier sleepers lie flat on their backs with their arms near their bodies and down to the side. This position also leads to problems with snoring which can decrease the overall quality of sleep, but overall is considered the best for pain prevention. Personality traits associated with the soldier position include expecting people to perform to a higher standard, quiet and reserved.

Eight percent of the people in the study preferred this position, which may be made more comfortable by adding a thin pillow below their knees just as with the starfish.

Starfish Position

The starfish sleeper lies on their back with arms raised up near their head. This leads to increased snoring and less rest. Personality traits include good listening skills, discomfort being front and center and helpfulness. Five percent of the respondents in the study preferred sleeping as starfish and may reduce discomfort by placing a thin pillow under their knees.
