Falling Asleep - Sleeping Position - Continued

Small not noticeably uncomfortable things may cause your muscles to get tensed - obviously not something that will help shutdown your body. Therefore this is the reason why the recommended sleeping position is to lie flat on your back, legs straight, hands by your sides. But I'm sure many of us, including myself, can speak from our own experiences that this isn't ever the easiest way to fall asleep. A good alternative suggestion would be to try to get into a comfortable position as close to the ideal sleeping position as possible. Comfort varies from person to person, so for you, it may be slightly leaning to one side, for someone else, it may be spreading out their hands/legs more, and for someone else, it may just be placing your hands together on top of your torso. Whatever it is, the bottom line here is to get into a comfortable position for yourself, as close to the ideal sleeping position, and one that will not cause your muscles to get tensed and for your body to not feel pressured in the least amount of ways.

Falling Asleep

Sleep is a vital part of life. Depending on the person, some people require less sleep, some people require more sleep. Nevertheless, there comes times when we're lying in bed, awake, unable to fall asleep.

This here is part 1 of my guide on some recommended ways to help you fall into unconsciousness.

Sleeping Position

The ideal position in which you would like to fall asleep in is of key importance. If you are in an awkward, and uncomfortable position, chances are, this will not help. What you want is to be in a position that will let your body feel comfortable and relaxed. You do not want to be lying in a position where you're causing a strain on certain muscles in certain areas of your body. You do not want to be putting pressure on parts of your body either. Examples of this includes sleeping on your hand, which hinders blood flow, or heavily sleeping on your front, which may hinder normal breathing.
