Doctors told on which side the dream is stronger

На каком боку лучше спать

Sleep (Latin somnus) is a natural physiological process of staying in a state with a minimum level of brain activity and a reduced response to the surrounding world, inherent in mammals, birds, fish and some other animals, including insects (for example, Drosophila). In addition, the word “dream” refers to a sequence of images (formed during the so-called “fast sleep” phase) that a person can remember (see also a dream). Physiologically, normal sleep differs from other states similar to it - suspended animation (the so-called "hibernation" in animals), hypnotic sleep, coma, fainting, lethargic sleep.

Since we spend a third of our lives in a dream, it is important to optimally use this time to restore the body. The bed should be comfortable, the sleeping room should be dark and well ventilated, and the very position of the body should be correct.

It's no secret that sleep is one of the most important components of a person’s physical and mental health. However, few people realize that the quality of sleep is no less important than its quantity. According to numerous studies by scientists that not restraining posture during sleep can cause chronic pain in the neck and lower back, it can also cause headaches, temporary holding of breath during sleep (apnea), heartburn and stomach pain. Not to mention snoring.

Today we will talk about which side is best to sleep on: right or left, and why. A full sleep is the key to good health!

Sleep Poses

In fact, there can be a lot of postures during sleep: on the stomach, on the back, on the right or on the left side, and even with a fist.

Sleep on the back

Sleeping on your back can contribute to snoring, make breathing difficult, and this is dangerous for people who suffer from asthma or are prone to apnea (temporary respiratory arrest). Studies have also shown that people who sleep on their backs have a lower oxygen content in the blood, and this increases the risk of developing respiratory diseases.

On the right side

The habit of sleeping on the right side can lead to digestive problems. Slowing down the lymphatic system stops the elimination of toxins from the body, which leads to the risk of some kind of fatal disease.

On the left side

Sleep on the left side is considered the most useful. It activates the digestive system, especially the stomach and pancreas, helps the lymphatic system remove toxins and toxins.

Techniques that make it easier to change your sleeping position


Lie down so that there is more space on the left side. Then the dream on the right side will seem uncomfortable to you, and you will be happy to roll over to your left side.


Put a night lamp or a table lamp on the right side of the bed. You subconsciously want to stay away from the light source during sleep, and it will be much easier to stay on your left side.


Place a large pillow or soft toy on the right side at the back. This will not give you the opportunity to roll over or make it difficult to sleep on your right side, which means you will quickly roll over to the left.

Whatever side you sleep on, the main thing is to get enough sleep!

A full sleep is the key to high performance, strong immunity and long life.
