На каком боку лучше спать

Sleep (lat. Somnus) is a natural physiological process of staying in a state with a minimum level of brain activity and a reduced reaction to the surrounding world inherent in mammals, birds, fish and some other animals, including insects (for example, fruit flies). In addition, the word “dream” refers to a sequence of images (formed during the phase of the so-called “fast sleep”) that a person can remember (see also dream). Physiologically, ordinary sleep is different from other conditions similar to it - anabiosis (so-called "hibernation" in animals), hypnotic sleep, coma, fainting, lethargic sleep.

Since we spend a third of our life in a dream, it is important to use this time in an optimal way to restore the body. The bed should be comfortable, the sleeping room should be dark and well ventilated, and the body position itself 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 supporting the posture during sleep can cause chronic pain in the neck and lower back, it can also provoke headaches, temporary breathing during sleep (apnea), heartburn and stomach pain. Not to mention snoring.

Today we will talk about which side is better to sleep : on the right or on the left and why. Good sleep is a guarantee of good health!

Posture during sleep

На каком боку лучше спать

In fact, posture during sleep can be very much: on the stomach, on the back, on the right or on the left side, and even in a little ball.

Sleep on your 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 sleep apnea (temporary breathing). Also, studies have shown that people who sleep on their backs have a low 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. The slowing down of the lymphatic system stops the elimination of toxins from the body, which leads to the risk of earning some deadly disease.

On the left side

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

Receptions with the help of which it is easier to change the sleeping position


Lie down so that there is more space on the left side. Then the dream on the right side will seem to you inconvenient, and you with pleasure will turn over on the left side.


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


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

On which side you would not sleep, the main thing is to get enough sleep!

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