“Tell me how you sleep and I’ll tell you who you are”
Did you know that our personalities have a persisting way of manifesting itself, even when we’re unconscious? Numerous studies done in the past decades have shown that there is a direct link between our sleeping position and our personalities.
Find out what your sleeping position says about you!
|THE FETAL POSITION
The fetal position is one of the most common sleeping position among sleepers. Fetal position is sleeping on one side with legs all bunched and knees curled up like a fetus. More popular among women, the fetal position is one of the more comfortable sleeping positions.
People who sleep in the fetal position are said to have a hard exterior with a hidden sensitive side. Though a bit shy, they are warm, organized and ready for action.
| THE YEARNER POSITION
Another common (and comfortable) sleeping style, the yearner position sleeps on their sides but with their arms stretched out in front of them.People who are “yearners” are big “people-persons”. They are happy, outgoing “dreamers” with high levels of energy. Though slow to make decisions, “yearners” maintains a solid resolve once their minds are set on something.
| THE LOG POSITION
“I can sleep like a log” is an expression people use. But in this case, the log is an actual sleeping position used by people. This sleeping style has people lying on their sides as well, but with their legs and arms are extended straight– looking just like a log.People who sleep in this position are easy going extroverts; however, despite their cheerful attitude, they are inflexible, hard headed and bossy just like a log.
|THE SOLDIER POSITION
This position is one of the more unpopular style; however, people who sleep in the soldier claim to get the most sleep with this position. This sleeping position is characterized as lying on their back, with their arms straight down at their side.
“Soldiers” live up to their names as people who sleep this way tend to be structured, reserved and a bit quiet. They take themselves very seriously and have high expectations of themselves and their environment.
|THE STARFISH POSITION
This position is the least preferred by people. Starfishes lie on their backs, with their legs stretched out and their arms by their heads.
Starfishes are seen to be extremely loyal, friendly and sociable. They are helpful and empathetic but are shy of the spotlight.
|THE FREE FALL POSITION
The free fall is characterized as sleeping on one’s stomach, with their head turned to either side, with hands near their pillow.
People who “free fall” are sensitive, outgoing people who likes socializing. Though considered free spirits, free fallers are sensitive individuals, especially to criticism and are secretly nervous and self-conscious.
Match the feel of your mattress with your sleeping position
Though there are many more “hybrid” sleeping positions, generally, we can see that there are three main sleeping categories:
- The Side Sleepers (the Fetal Position, the Yearner Position, the Log Position)
- The Back Sleepers (the Soldier Position, the Starfish Position)
- The Stomach Sleepers (the Free Fall Position)
Knowing your sleep position should be the basis on buying the type of mattress that best suits you. Having the right mattress will help you get that 5-star sleep that you deserve. The following are the ideal types of mattresses based on your sleeping position:
PLUSH MATTRESSES FOR SIDE SLEEPERS
For Side Sleepers, it is important to provide proper cushioning to their hips and shoulders. That is why a Soft/Plush mattress like the BEDWORKS Comfort Sleep Posture Indulgence Latex Soft Mattress is ideal.
FIRM MATTRESSES FOR BACK SLEEPERS
For Back Sleepers, spinal alignment and support is important. A firm mattress like BEDWORKS’ Presidential Luxury Firm Mattress provides great sleeping comfort for those who sleep in their backs.
