For individuals who live hectic and on the go lives that always put sleep on the back burner when it comes to other important matters to take into account such as the job or even a child, there are new ways to sleep that will improve the overall quality of the sleep cycle. As individuals spend one third of their lives sleeping, it is important to make sure that the one third of time that is spent doing this activity is done so with quality rather than with quantity. A good night of sleep is healthy for the mind as well as for the body.
Proper sleep is important for those who wish to live a healthy and productive lifestyle with a good mood attracting friends and fellow friendly individuals. In recent news, new postures have been recommended more for sleeping without any of the normal back or neck pain that is associated with certain sleeping positions. With statistics that show that 80 percent of the population experiences back pain at some point, it has become the mission of scientists to prevent this unhealthy side effect. One example to improve the overall sleep cycle as well as the position of the body is to sleep on the back. This will prevent any unnatural positions from hurting the body while sleeping.
Though scientists have proven that those who sleep on their back also snore more while in this position. It can be seen as a give and take situation. On one hand, the body is in a better position while on the other hand, the body produces more noise while in the position. As the best position is to sleep on the back or on the side, scientists have also released a chart with the bad sleeping positions to be in.
Some of these sleeping positions have been stated to be unhealthy as many of the individuals that remain in this position have complained about a bad back. Some of these positions include sleeping in a fetal position due to the fact that the back curves too much and sleeping on the stomach. Sleeping on the stomach puts too much pressure on the joints and on the muscles and leads to the body aching in the morning.
