Everyone has their favorite sleeping position. But unfortunately, each position comes with its own set of negative side effects.
So, should you stick with your go-to sleep position or switch it up?
For many of us, changing to an entirely new sleep position is a tall order — and if you’re not experiencing any major problems, your best course of action is likely simply incorporating some of the side effect prevention tips above into your sleep routine.
But if your favorite position is causing you any kind of pain, it might be worth the effort to try switching it up. Note that this may be difficult at first, and you may have to cycle through a few different positions to find the one that’s most comfortable for you.
That said, if you really can’t make it work with another position, all is not lost. Instead of switching, you may find significant relief by implementing the side effect prevention tips above.
Either way, your body will thank you.
