The most used postures are actually the most harmful to health, and many have the habit of sleeping in those postures.
If after 7 or 8 hours of sleep you feel tired and sleepy and after you wake up you have headache and muscle pain, it is time for change!
In addition, read what the two worst positions to sleep are.
Sleeping on the stomach
Even though many think this sleeping position adjusts the back and stretches the body, it is not like that. Sleeping on the stomach actually has quite the opposite effect that you feel in the morning after getting out of bed.
It is very difficult to keep the natural and relaxed position of the pelvis in this position. Also, this way you are creating increased pressure to the groin and other abs, legs and arms that irritates the nervous system of the body and can lead to tension and muscle aches.
Similar thing happens with the head position set on the side as much as possible. This posture will strain your tendons and press the nerves, which can lead to pain in the neck and unexpected headaches.
Position of a fetus
Majority of the population sleep in this position, unfortunately, it must be avoided. In the fetal position the pelvis is bent into the shape of the letter C, which is not natural at all. Also your knees suffer in this position, which if bent for a longer period of time if in the same situation can worsen circulation and cause pain.
This sleeping position presses the diaphragm and thus hinders breathing. Pressure created in the chest may cause a dull ache, and it encourages facial wrinkles and premature aging.
This sleeping posture is good and beneficial only for pregnant women because the pressure on the stomach is reduced and facilitates breathing.
