Do you get plenty of sleep at night but still feel tired in the morning? It’s could be an issue with your sleeping position.

It might be due to low quality sleep. Tossing and turning in the bed, and interrupted sleep can make a full night’s rest seem like a power nap. This is especially true for individuals who are under a lot of anxiety. Most of the stress that one experiences when sleeping is on the back and neck. These areas are deeply affected by the pressure of pillows and odd positions.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to sleep on one’s stomach. Doing so can lead to acid reflux and back pain. Correcting years of bad sleeping practices does not happen overnight. Be patient and use all the tools you need such as apps and wearables to revert back to your body’s natural sleeping habits.
The following graphic guide on correct sleeping position will help you understand how to get a better night’s rest and help you alleviate common issues related to poor sleep. The most common sleep position is on the side. In fact, about 57% of people start the night in that sleeping position. 17% of people lie on their back and just 11% on their stomach.
