The quality of sleep affects people’s physical health and mental state.
Many people have experienced this: every day on time, get up early and get up early, but when they wake up, they still feel sore and exhausted.In fact, this is caused by low sleep quality.There are many factors that affect the quality of sleep, and the sleeping position is one that cannot be ignored.
Which sleeping position is the best?
Common sleeping positions are divided into four types: supine, prone, left, and right lying on the right side.
Separation is a sleeping position that many people like.The biggest advantage of this sleeping position is that the weight of each part of the body is allocated, and the head, limbs, and spine can be neutral.
However, many people will unconsciously put their hands on their chests when they are lying on their back, which will easily lead to chest tightness, suffering, and nightmare.In addition, when the tongue is falling back, it is easy to make people breathe smoothly and make a snoring sound.Therefore, this sleeping position is not healthy.
Single lying is a sleeping position that we often say lying on your stomach.Because when people sleep on their stomachs, joints, muscles, and internal organs will be oppressed. Not only will they not relax their bodies, they will also cause breathing difficulties.Many people will feel sore after falling asleep lying on their stomach, which is the reason.
When the left side is lying on the left, the human body is facing the left, and the tip of the heart is easily oppressed.In addition, the ears may hear the sound of "banging" beating on the pillow, which will also affect the sleep. Over time, it can also cause neurasthenia and cardiovascular disease.
When the right side is lying, the heart is in a high level, not oppressed, which is conducive to heart rest.At the same time, the food in the stomach can promote digestion and absorption by the gravity effect of the stomach, and it can promote digestion and absorption.In addition, the liver is at a low position and good blood supply, which is conducive to metabolism.In addition, the whole body is in a relaxed state when lying on the right side, and the brain, heart, lung, gastrointestinal, bones, and muscles can be fully rest and oxygen supply.
When you lie on the right side, you can put a waist pillow under the waist and a pillow between your knees.This can maintain the natural physiological curvature of the lumbar spine, reduce the pressure of the spine during sleep, and prevent the discomfort caused by over -protrusion, rotation, and side bending of the lumbar spine.
Although the right side is a very ideal sleeping position for most people, not everyone is suitable.Generally speaking, people with certain diseases should choose different sleeping positions according to their own situation.

Related data shows that more than 95%of patients with cerebral infarction are used to sleeping on the side in their daily lives, which will aggravate blood circulation, especially to slow the blood flow rate of the neck, and platelets are easily gathered in the endometrial injury.Then form a thrombosis.

The heart is located on the left side of the thoracic cavity. Lying on the right side can reduce the pressure of the heart, help blood flow, increase the blood supply of various organs of the body, and help metabolism.On the contrary, the left side and supine can increase the burden on the heart, so people with heart disease are best to use the right side.
