Orem Sleep Number Bed Alternative

 

Today I'm going to answer the question: What is the best sleeping posture?

When it comes to your sleep there are several things you can do help your posture, but I believe the most important thing is, what is comfortable for you? What circumstances help you sleep the best?

I'm frequently asked what's the best pillow or best mattress?

I don't know. You need to decide what you like best. Any therapeutic value a pillow or mattress may provide are lost if you aren't comfortable and don't sleep well.

Once you've got those covered here a few others things you can do.

Sleep on your back or side. It's good to avoid stomach sleeping because to sleep on your stomach you need to rotate your head to one side so you can breathe. Having your neck rotated for hours while you're sleeping is the problem.

Of these, the most important may be the pillow you choose. When laying on your back use a pillow that supports the natural curve of your neck. When laying on your side it should be the same height as your shoulder to ensure that your head it not propped to high or hanging low.

Lastly, put a pillow between your knees when laying on your side to keep your hips level.
