The Perfect Sleeping Positions to Fix Common Body Problems

Many people don’t realize how important getting a good nights sleep is. And it’s not just about the amount of sleep, but the quality of sleep as well. From aches to pains, indigestion, or even a tendency to snore, there are positions in which you can sleep that can help cure what ails you.

Below is an awesome info-graphic from The Wall Street Journal that points out some of the most common troublesome positions and highlights how you can adjust these so you can go back to having undisturbed, restful sleep.

Are you suffering from back pain? You could try sleeping with a pillow between your knees. Do you have indigestion or acid reflux? Try elevating your head a little with some of your fluffy pillows or with your bed by placing some bricks under the legs. Wasting your precious sleeping hours by forcing yourself to sleep uncomfortably is exactly that, a waste of your health and time. If you want more information other than this info-graphic on how sleeping positions can affect you, we’ve included a link to the full WSJ article as well as a research link at the bottom of this post.

While you’re here…
…We have a tiny favor to ask of you. Government think tanks have teamed up with social media companies and Google to censor independent media websites and government criticism. Despite this big tech crackdown on the free press, we have been very fortunate, and tens of thousands of people continue to read The Mind Unleashed every single day. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.. And because we value open and accessible information for all, we would never hide our content behind a paywall. Unlike Fox News or CNN, our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. We are not subject to the whims of billionaire shareholders. We are editorially independent, and that makes websites like this an important part in the war for truth and justice. Hopefully we’re wrong, but without your help, we're afraid big tech companies may soon make The Mind Unleashed algorithmically disappear from the Internet. We need your support to keep delivering quality independent news. Every contribution, big or small, will go directly into funding independent journalism. Thank you. Click here to support us
