Health, The Good Life
Don’t you hate it when you sleep wrong and all of a sudden you’re so stiff you can barely get out of bed. There could be an easy fix. Your posture.
So before you nod off, do a quick posture check.
According to the editors of Natural Prescriptions for Women, there are three sleep positions that help ease strain on your head, neck, and back.
1. If you sleep on your back, put a small pillow under your knees.
2. If you sleep on your side, avoid tucking your neck and chin into the fetal position.
3. If you sleep on your stomach, put a pillow under one side of your body so your head and neck aren’t strained.
The word is these joint-friendly sleeping habits can help protect creaky body parts from developing a crick. So give it a try.
