Today’s Question

What is your favourited sleeping position?
I used to be able to sleep comfortably on my back when l was younger and kept that position till my later thirties. Then for a small while l slept on my stomach all night with ease. These days l think l hold centre position in the bed and sleep left side fetal.

Anyway that’s me, what about you?
Let me know below.

  1. When I practiced yoga – must’ve been for almost 20 years! – we were instructed to rest on our right side after savasana (resting pose, which is on our back). It was said to be the least pressure on heart. I used to sleep that way but now it could be either right or left side, but sometimes on my front.
    I believe the worst position is on the back as most deaths occur that way. Even if you don’t die, you’re more likely to snore on your back and that’s bad for your breathing.

    1. Hey Ian, yes l have heard snoring is most likely to occur whilst sleeping on your back. I do snore, although l now sleep alone so it matters not l guess, and my door is shut so l am waking no one – but l don’t think l tend to sleep that way anymore.

      Suze has taken to snoring and she too l notices now sleeps on her back.


      1. Wow impressive 🙂

        I need to get back into my routine of exercise discipline, but since the arrival of the allotment and everything else ongooing outside, l have been occupied in lots of activity but not regular exercising and l ache like hell most days now.

        I used to walk daily, but the weather has been attrocious so any clear weather l now make available for catching up. Once l get this month out of the way, l can start to chillax a bit and get back into things properly again.


      2. It’s hard to stay consistent. I haven’t been the best with consistency. It’s been hit or miss, but I’m proud of myself for continuing to get back up! I finished classes Tuesday, so I won’t have that stressor anymore. It contributed to a lot of my lack of exercise. I just didn’t have the energy.

        Sorry to hear you ache. I’m sure you’ll get back to a routine that suits you eventually. 🙂

      1. Oh right, it’s strange how our sleeping positions change and not something l guess we ever give a lot of thought to unlike sleeping problems themselves which seem to be the topic of high conversation when they occur 🙂

      1. Most definitely! I’m an unusual person by most standards. Not sure if that’s good, bad, or neutral, but it’s true.
        My biggest surprise was that I stayed standing, and long enough for the ice cream to melt. I fall over all the time when I’m awake. 😂😂

      2. Sheesh you give being asleep a bad name hahaha 🙂

        I can’t scoff at this, l used to fall asleep in unusual positions and locations too. These days it is easier, but then l am not being as challenged sleep wise as you are.
