I’ve been thinking about my sleeping position recently. Every night, I crawl into bed and assume the same position: I lay on my stomach with my arms curled around the pillow/under my head, with my left leg straight and my right leg curled in towards my knee (think: tree pose in yoga). I sleep with my left cheek on the pillow. Any other position feels incredibly strange to me.
This got me thinking: how common is it to sleep on your stomach? According to this article, only 7% of people do. It says the most common sleeping position is the fetal position (41%). I suppose I’m not surprised to hear that. Justin sleeps that way. I even used to sleep that way, but over time I realized that I’d start out sleeping in the fetal position but I’d wake up on my stomach. Perhaps my body was telling me what it wanted to do?
So now I’m curious: what position do you sleep in? Am I the only stomach sleeper out there?
