What position do you usually sleep in? How to sleep “well”? How do you know you’re sleeping well? 

Dear clients ask almost every day how they “need” to sleep. Is there any golden rule for this too!?

But there isn’t. Everyone has to adjust the sleeping position to their body, to their comfort.

Do you sleep on your stomach, for example? If we sleep on our stomach, the neck turns to one side for a long time. This stretches the neck muscles, which can make the neck painful and stiff in the morning. Sleeping on your stomach can stiff your back, especially if you sleep on a softer mattress. In this case, the abdomen sinks, which puts pressure on the spine and back muscles. If the mattress is already stretched out in the middle, it must be replaced to properly support the body and compensate for its curves (shoulder, pelvis).

But lying on your stomach is also fine, if you can adjust to a comfortable position! Sleep peacefully like this if you love and feel good! To be comfortable, pay attention to the hardness of the mattress and the pillow, so that it adapts to your shape.

In case of acute pain, a hard mattress can also be good, we also recommend it, but this is also a matter of need and habit.

You know when you sleep well, when you wake up rested, your muscles are light, your muscles are smooth… There is no rule that applies to everyone, there are no standards that apply to everyone, only guidelines.

If you would like to learn some breathing techniques before you go to sleep, I am happy to help you.
