What Your Sleeping Position Reveals About Your Unconscious Mind

There’s a lot of advice online explaining the benefits of sleeping 8 hours every night, leaving your smartphone and computer in a separate room, not checking your e-mails after your working hours and not consuming meals or alcohol 4 hours before going to bed.

While all of these are indeed helpful, the way you sleep also makes a big difference to your health. There are some specific postures that can alleviate the discomfort brought upon by specific health issues. People have made connections between personality and sleep position for decades. When we fall asleep our bodies are controlled by our unconscious mind, therefore the position you sleep in can tell a lot about your worries, thoughts, and feelings.

 

Lady Life Hacks elaborates on the idea as it follows:

Your subconsciousness dictates your body language. Your mind controls the way you communicate with the rest of the world through words, thus allowing you the ability to intentionally give false information. However, you can’t ‘fake’ body language. That’s why our gestures and facial expressions say more about us than our own words could. The most credible information you can get about another person is while they’re sleeping. When we’re awake, we have partial control over our gestures and facial expressions. When we’re asleep, our consciousness is inactive, and our body language is controlled exclusively by our subconsciousness.

It’s one of the most difficult positions to get used to, but it’s the superior one by far. Lying on your back means that your spine is fully supported by your mattress. People who sleep on their backs are known to feel a lot of “psychological power.” This reflects confidence and total relaxation.

If you sleep on your stomach with your hands under the pillow you are a thoughtful, cautious person who is really good at keeping secrets and negotiating. Stomach sleepers are known for stubbornness, a belief that they’re always right, and trouble taking criticism well. They’re very focused on reaching their targets.

This position is favored by 41% of people. However, the downside is that curving your legs adds stress to your back. If this is your favorite position, a pillow between your knees will make it better. People who sleep in this position are known to feel at least slightly intimidated by life. The position describes feels of vulnerability and/or insecurity.

 

Sleeping on the side
