Do you have a preferred sleeping position or do you mix it up? When sleeping with your partner, do you have specific habits? Most people will say YES... But what does it all mean?

Here is the significance of each sleeping position, according to Reader's Digest.


About twice as many WOMEN sleep curled up as MEN. Most people say it offers them an added sense of security. According to sleep researchers, curled-up sleepers may be sensitive, yet display a rough exterior; similarly, they can appear shy, only to open up with time.

LIKE A LOG (arms straight)

Do you sleep straight with your arms at your sides? This usually indicates easygoing, social personalities. These people will have an easier time trusting strangers.

If you sleep in the "yearning" position, you may have an open nature, similar to the "log" position. However, you'll have a lesser tendency to be gullible.


Experts generally recommend sleeping on your side for optimal comfort and health. They have a few specific pointers too, for optimal sleeping. Knees bent slightly - but not completely, as with the fetal position - is optimal. In addition, a small pillow between the kness helps spine alignment, they say. 

Which side you will prefer sleeping on may depend on what kind of person you are. For example, researchers found that the left side if favoured by people between 45 and 54. Right side sleeping is favoured by people aged 35 to 44. In addition, right sleeping may be better for your heart because of reduced pressure from the weight of other organs - after all, the heart is on the left side!


Have you ever found yourself sleeping uncomfortably, face down, in the middle of the night? Sleeping face down is not nearly as popular as other positions. Experts even recommend against it, especially for women who have large breasts or who are pregnant. It's also bad for you if you have neck or back problems. Face-down sleeping is favoured by people aged 45 to 54 and heavy drinkers. It may also indicate that you have a brash attitude and dislike being criticized.


Back sleepers tend to wake up feeling "refreshed" - but that may be explained by their age (25 to 34). The downside is that snoring is associated with back sleeping...
