    Sleeping Position

    Hey CNET!

    Though most of us may move through the night, what is the most comfortable position for you to fall asleep in?

    I know people that prefer to sleep on their backs, on their stomachs, their sides, sitting up, etc. The most common, according to most movies and shows, is on their back.. but I prefer to sleep on my side. Ever since I was a kid!

    How about you? What’s your preferred sleep position?

    Hey Cory!

    I am so with you on this one! The only position I am comfortable sleeping in is on my side. I can sleep on either side and tend to rotate throughout the night. I remember as a kid I use to sleep on my stomach. I don't think I ever slept on my back I think it just freaks me out a little as that is the position I associate with being in a coffin; I know that's pretty morbid...sorry.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Have a good one!

    Hey Cory,

    I am most comfortable sleeping on my stomach. Sometimes I will fall asleep on my side on accident as I usually lay on my side while watching tv, but I almost always wake up with a sore neck or back when I do. I try to flip over on my stomach, arms wrapped under my pillow, as soon as I start nodding off. I can't sleep flat on my back comfortably.

    Hey Cory!

    I pretty much always sleep on my side. I will change positions sometimes in the night, but typically just to my other side.

    Here is an interesting fact: technically, it is better to sleep on your left side than your right side. You have one more lobe of your lung on the right than the left (the heart takes up that spot on your left side if I am not mistaken), so when you sleep on your right side it is a little harder to breathe than when you are on your left side. When a patient is in a hospital, if he or she needs to be on their side for a time, nurses typically will move them to their left side rather than right for this very reason.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Hey Cory,

    So while I love sleeping on my back in the idea of it, I'll usually fall asleep on one of my sides.
    I was actually having trouble with my neck until recently, and found out that it was connected to the size of my pillow.
    When I was trying to find out where the troubles came from I went to a physical therapist, who asked me how I sleep. That was the first time I started noticing that I fall asleep on my side and not on my back.
    Turns out that the way you fall asleep really makes a difference on your body!

    Thanks,
