6 common sleeping positions reflect your character and subconscious


Everyone has a unique way of sleeping. Some people like to lie down, some people choose to lie on their side, and some people prefer to sleep on their stomachs. Peoples'body language can, to a certain extent, show their personality and thoughts even when they are sleeping. When people are awake, they know their body language very clearly, but this is the first time they know what their subconscious is saying. Let's take a look at the different characters represent by different sleeping positions.    

Here are 6 common sleeping positions, people may be surprised when they understand that the body can communicate with themselves while sleeping.  

Sleeping pisition

1. Fetus sleeping position

Crouched in the fetus position is the most popular sleep pattern and favored by most groups of people. Sleeping in a fetus position means that you are strong on the outside but sensitive on the inside. Many people stay in this sleeping position, curling their bodies like babies, imitating their position in the mother's womb because this sleeping position can provide a sense of security for them. People who like the fetus's sleeping position are often very friendly and easy to get along with, and even if they are very shy when they first meet others, the nature of kindness can not be hidden. 

It is beneficial for reducing snoring and improving sleep during pregnancy, but it may not help relieve neck and back pain and reduce wrinkles. Sleeping on your left side can cause stress on your vital organs (liver, stomach, lungs), so if the fetus is your position of choice, curl up on the right side of your body.

2. Log sleeping position

It means people lying sideways with their legs straight. Arms straight on both sides of the body which shows people are easily mingling with others and easy-going. Besides, they like socializing and are quite good at it. But on the other hand, because they are always willing to give trust and are more likely to be fooled and deceived, please be careful. This position keeps the spine straight, which should be beneficial for those who suffer from back pain.

3. Yearner sleeping position

Yearner sleeping position means arms are outstretched with their legs straight. People who desire to sleep are always used to having something in their hands to fall asleep. The yearners are open to new things, but also suspicious and cynical. They take a long time to make decisions—weighing pros and cons repeatedly—but once they make a choice, they rarely change their minds or have regrets. 

Well, the health benefit is resting on your side can help alleviate some problems associated with acid reflux disease and sleep apnea. But if such symptoms are a common occurrence, you may need to see a specialist. 

4. Soldier sleeping position

As the name shows, people lying on their bodies with arms on the sides like a soldier and stand still even asleep. This posture can easily lead to stiff limbs and reduce sleep quality, so try putting a pillow on your lower back to maintain the body's basic natural curvature. People who like the soldier's sleeping position are usually conservative and quiet, but they get good demanding and high requirements of themselves.

Men prefer this sleeping position than women to some extent. Research shows that sleeping on your back may lead to snoring, difficulty breathing, and an overall bad night’s sleep. Is your snoring keeping someone awake at night? Try flipping over—you will both wake up more refreshed.

5. Starfish sleeping position

The starfish sleeping position refers to the prone sleeping position with arms raised above the head (the elbows are bent). Unassuming, good listeners usually adopt this position but they don't like to be the focus of attention. But if you have a good friend who sleeps with the starfish position, congratulations-they are often excellent listeners, know how to comfort others, and keep a low profile. Like the military, starfish sleepers are more likely to snore and have breathing problems while they sleep, resulting in a less refreshing night’s rest.

6. Freefall sleeping position

It is easy to understand what it is like. Freefall sleeping position, the most unusual position which means lying on the back with the head tilted to one side and the arms around the pillow. Only a few groups of people prefer it and they are usually brash and gregarious. People who like this sleeping position may be nervous and reckless but do not like criticism. They are outgoing and impatient, seemingly calm but they are thin-skinnedthey will be more willing to accept opinions in private than to argue in public. Freefall sleeping position or any position in which you’re lying face down—is good for digestion.


When sleeping, everyone is in a relaxed state and their sleeping postures are unconsciously put out. At this time through the above 6 sleeping positions, the character of people can be easily caught. 

So which sleeping position makes you feel most secure? We recommend lying on the right!

Lying on the right is a healthy sleeping position that most people recognize because it doesn't press the heart. Therefore, keeping the right side is more good for your health. But sleeping postures are personal habits that are different after all. Kindly check out our pillows to get the health of sleep.
