You already know that daytime posture is important for reducing pain and other conditions.

Did you know that your sleep posture matters just as much – if not more – for health and wellbeing?

Think about it: you spend upwards of eight hours each night lying in bed. Shouldn't you strive for proper posture?

The truth is, there's a best sleeping position for many health conditions.

The Best Sleeping Position for Curing Every Sleep Problem

If you suffer from chronic pain, tingling in your arms, or other health conditions, you might want to consider evaluating your sleep position.

Here are is the best sleeping position for all your ailments.

Sleep Apnea and Snoring

People suffering from sleep apnea should never sleep on their back. This can be downright dangerous because your tongue could cut off your air supply.

Instead, sleep on your side or in the fetal position to keep your airways wide open.

Sleeping on your stomach can also reduce snoring, but it brings a lot of other problems with it like neck pain.

Pregnancy Discomfort

When you're pregnant, nothing feels comfortable. To get as comfortable as possible, sleep on your left side with a pillow between your legs.

Sleeping on your left side will promote healthy blood circulation and stop your uterus from applying pressure to your liver. (Which causes heartburn.)

Acid Reflux

If you suffer from heartburn or acid reflux, back is best.

Sleeping on your back keeps your body in a "natural" position which puts less stress on your digestive tract (as opposed to your side or stomach).

Just make sure to keep your head raised slightly above your abdomen to prevent acid from creeping up your esophagus.


Lay on your back and go through a meditative process to calm your body starting with the top of your head and moving down to your toes.

On your back, you're less likely to experience that strange and dull pain where your bed suddenly feels like a concrete slab forcing you to get up.

Back and Neck Pain

For folks with chronic back or neck pain, sleeping on your side or in the fetal position is best because it promotes blood flow.

Wrinkles and Aging Skin

Sleeping on your side can cause wrinkles because your face ends up pressed against the pillow. Sleep on your back instead.
