Science explains your sleeping positions

When you are heading to your bedroom and getting ready to lay down in bed for your night’s sleep, you shuffle this way and then that way till you finally find the most comfortable position to peacefully and happily fall asleep. The end!! Well, not quiet, science has more to say on the subject.

Science says that your sleeping position has more to do with your personality than you’d like to admit. Research shows that how you sleep physically has close links to your personality, mental and physical status. The study took a look at six sleeping positions and found that each is linked to different personality types.

1. The Fetal Position

This is when you curl up in bed like a fetus would in the womb.

What does this position say about you? This means you put on a tough exterior but you’re really a softy deep down inside. This is a very common position to sleep in according to this study.

2. The Log Position

This is the position when you lie on your side and have your arms parallel to your torso and legs.

What does this position say about you? This means you are easy-going, sociable, and are usually in the popular crowd. You are, however, gullible.

3. The Yearner

This is the position where you like to lie on your side and have your arms in front of you. What does this position say about you? Well, this means you’re less gullible and more cynical. These people are also more suspicious of others.

4. The Starfish Position

This is the position where you like to sleep on your back with your arms up and around your pillow.

What does this position say about you?  That you make a good friend. This is because you’re a great listener and always up to giving a hand when someone is in need.

5. The Soldier

This is the position where you sleep on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. What does this position say about you? You’re generally quiet and reserved. You hold yourself to high standards but you’re not about drama.

6. Freefall

This is the position where you like to lie on your stomach with your hands around the pillow and head turned to one side. What does this position say about you? This means you tend to be brash. You are also described as gregarious, nervy, and not able to take criticism or intense situations.

Do you agree with this scientific research and its findings? Have your own say and leave us your thoughts below.
