The music you love to listen to, the style you choose for your clothes, the way you decorate your home or the way you shake someone’s hand, they all say something about your personality. The position you sleep in also says something about you.
Research has shown that sleep positions can be linked to certain personality traits. Which sleep position do you find yourself in and what does it say about your personality? Find out below!
The fetus position is the most common sleeping position and is more commonly found in women than men. If you sleep in the fetus position you might seem tough, shy or drawn at first sight and you’re sensible and kind.
Tip: If you sleep in the fetus position and you want to have a healthy sleep, it is recommended to put a pillow between your knees, that way there will be less tension on your muscles and your back. Check out our selection of pillows for side sleepers.
You sleep on your back, with your body in a straight position and with your hands down, close to your body, like a soldier in a military camp. Those who sleep like a soldier are quiet, reserved and have high expectations from themselves and from others.
Tip: The Soldiers should sleep on a surface that supports their back well, this is why the mattress is extremely important. Choose a firm mattress or one with a medium firmness. Check out our selection of pillows for back sleepers.
When you sleep on your stomach with your head turned to one side and your hands up around the pillow, you sleep in the freefall position. If you are among those who love to sleep like this, you are very communicative, extroverted, direct and sensitive. You don't like to be criticized, make quick decisions and don’t like extreme situations.
Tip: Sleeping on your stomach is not recommended, because it builds tension in your neck. But if you can only fall asleep while lying on your stomach, you could try to put a pillow under your stomach to reduce the tension. Or you can rest your head on a low pillow. Check out our selection of pillows for stomach sleepers.
The Starfish sleeps on their back, with both hands up around the pillow. If you’re a starfish, you're always ready to help others, a good listener, making you a great friend. You tend to shy away from being the centre of attention. Just like soldiers, people who sleep in the starfish position might snore and sleep poorly.
Tip: Try putting a pillow below your knees, to reduce the pressure on the sciatic nerve.
The Stargazer sleeps on their back, with both hands up placed under their head or under the pillow. If you are a stargazer then you are optimistic and carefree and go through life pretty happy. You tend to put your friends first and do all you can to help them out.
