1. Give your heart a break
the best sleep position for heart
By sleeping on your left side, you allow gravity to help your heart circulate blood more easily.
It sounds simple and basic, but by sleeping on your left side, you are letting gravity help blood flow through your heart.
Also sleeping on the left side help to take some pressure off the heart, as gravity can facilitate both lymph drainage toward and aortic circulation away from the heart. That said, it should be noted that there’s some debate over whether sleeping on right or the left side is best for heart health.
2. Relieves back pain
sleep position for back pain
Who among us hasn’t woken up because they slept in an unfamiliar position, causing neck or back strain? If you sometimes wake up with pain, it helps to sleep on your left side.
First of all, sleeping on your left side can relieve tension in your spine. The more pressure you put on your back while you sleep, the harder your muscles have to work to keep everything in place. By going a little lower when you sleep on your left side, you improve blood circulation. This has a cascading effect that can reduce inflammation associated with tight muscles.
