Experts have revealed what your sleeping position really says about your personality – and it’s good news if you sleep on your side or on your back.
The team behind the lifestyle publication Bed threads shared how much your body language in bed reveals about you, and the best and worst positions for your health.
Their experts discovered that the best position to sleep is on your back, followed by your side – allowing your backbone to rest and relieve pressure on your veins.
The worst, however, is on your stomach, because it puts too much strain on your joints.

Side sleeping is not only good for your health, but it also means great things about your personality.
“Called by some as” the log, “this straight position may indicate that you are literally just rolling with everything that life has to offer you,” said Bed Threads, “Rory Carter.
“Moreover, surveys have shown that those who regularly sleep by their side consider themselves healthy and social.”

This will reduce any pressure on your veins and help pump blood around the body.

This is because your spine is in a neutral position and you therefore have less neck and back pain.
“Rug sleepers tend to be a younger age category from around 25 to early 30,” Rory said.
The position can be a sign of confidence and a carefree attitude.

The fetal position is another popular sleeping position because it gives us a safe and comfortable feeling.

Bed threads only warn you to be careful not to curl up too tightly, as this may limit your diaphragm and breathing.

Finally, if you are someone who falls asleep in one way and wakes up in a completely different position, this may indicate a personality trait.
“Just like your freestyle sleep movements, you are generally interested in everything and you always explore new business ideas in your head,” Rory said.
