Humans spend a third of their lives sleeping for relaxation. However, not many are aware that the position that one sleeps in may be the reason for lack of sleep.
Whether you are on your side, on your back, or somewhere in between, sleeping positions vary as much as the sleeper. Your sleeping position can even benefit your life beyond the bed. Here are a few sleeping positions that determine one’s personality.
Log position: The log position, in which the sleeper slumbers on their side, legs extended straight and arms by their sides, is the second most popular position. Log sleepers are very social and easygoing people.
Yearner: The yearner position looks a lot like the log. The sleeper snoozes on their sides but their arms are stretched out in front of them, kind of like a mummy. Studies say that people who choose this position are usually very inviting and open.
Soldier: A person that sleeps in soldier position is one that sleeps on their back with their arms straight down at their side. Solider sleepers also live up to their name, tending to be strong, silent types who don’t like a big fuss. They are very structured and take themselves, and those around them, very seriously.
Freefaller: A freefaller sleeper dozes on their stomachs, head to the side, with their arms wrapped around a pillow. As the name suggests, freefaller sleepers have open, gregarious, and playful personalities. Although they tend to be risk takers, they’re surprisingly sensitive to criticism as well.
Starfish: The starfish position is the least popular slumbering style. Starfish sleepers lie on their backs with their legs stretched out, and their arms stretched up by their head, looking a bit like a cactus. People who snooze in this unconventional style are very loyal pals and make friendship a huge priority in their lives.
Fetal Position: The fetal position, in which a person sleeps on their side with their legs curled up, is one of the most popular. 41 percent of people sleep this way. People of this type are very shy and sensitive on the inside. They can also over think a problem and worry unnecessarily.
