Before heading to your local mattress store to pick your new Serta mattress or iComfort Sleep System model, you need to determine your sleep position. Your sleep position says a lot about the quality of sleep you achieve each night as well as your needs in both a mattress and pillow. Take a look at these points to figure out which sleep position will offer you the most comfort:
Side Sleepers Can Maximize Comfort by Supporting Hips
When picking out a Serta mattress, side sleepers should choose a model that isn’t too firm, as it can put more pressure on the hips. This sleep position is the healthiest for sleepers, who can make it even more comforting by using a moderate pillow for support.
Stomach Sleepers Should Bid Farewell to Head Pillows
Unfortunately for stomach sleepers, this is the worst position for your health, as it strains the neck. In order to avoid this tension, say goodbye to your head pillow, and opt for a body pillow, which can be placed under your hips.
Back Sleepers Need to Add Extra Support to the Lumbar Region
Sleeping on your back is taxing on the respiratory system. That’s why it’s not uncommon for back sleepers snoring. If you aren’t able to change your sleep position, do your back a big favor by providing plenty of lumbar support with help from pillows under the knees and your lower back.
All Sleepers Should Determine Their Positions Before Shopping
In order to determine your true sleep position, pay attention to how you wake up each morning. This position says more about your body’s natural preference than does your position when you go to bed each night.
