According to the British Centre for assessment of sleep, the position in which you sleep reveals your true personality. Professor Chris Idzikovski, who authored the study, has singled out six different body postures: fetus, starfish, freefall, soldier, desire and stump.
According to the ancient Greeks, sleeping on the side is the best for the health. The yoga instructors are recommending sleeping on the right side, because it does not strain the heart. Starfish and soldier are actually positions when the person is sleeping on his back. This posture increases the risk of snoring, breathing problems, stomach problems and sleep paralysis. The freefall position is the best for the stomach, because it allows good digestion of the food.
