Funny Side Position Facts You Probably Never Knew About

funny side side positions

We all know that sleeping people can be funny and cute (seen from the position observer), but when it comes to facts, most of them are serious and scientific. However, if you dig deep enough, you’ll find some interesting and peculiar enough facts to make sleeping funny from this point of view as well.

For instance, did you know that the sleeping position says a lot about someone? For instance, people who sleep on their side are considered to be tough on the outside but cuddly and sensitive on the inside. On the other hand, people who sleep on their back are thought to be very strict and well-structured (just like a soldier). Finally, people who sleep on their stomach are extremely sociable and free but tend to hide anxiety within their core.

Now that you know a bit more about yourself, it’s time to see the facts. The ones I listed below are mostly valid for people who like to sleep on the side (which is over 80% of the world population). So, if you want to know a bit more about the way you sleep and have a laugh while you do it, take a look below.

#1: You don’t know if you take Short Naps

Regardless of your sleeping position, there is possible to sleep and not know it. Humans can take really short naps with the eyes open, without losing balance so if you feel like you’re away from the conversation taking place in front of you, you may just be waking from a nap.

#2: There are Special Mattresses for Side Sleepers

Actually, there are mattresses for every sleeping position, but given the fact that most people sleep on their side there are more models that accommodate their needs. You can actually see a guide that can help you choose the best mattresses for side sleepers, here:

#3: We are Biphasic

Most mammals have a polyphasic sleep pattern which means that, within 24h, they need several sleep-awake cycles to function properly. However, humans are biphasic and only need two rounds of sleep every day and these are marked by two dips in alertness: around 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Basically, this is why we tend to feel sleepy after lunch.

#4: Sleepwalking is a Real Thing

According to the National Sleep Foundation, up to 15% of the population is sleepwalking. Can you imagine if there was a conference of sleepwalkers all over the globe? We could reenact the Walking Dead movies!

#5: A Pillow Is Helpful In More than One Ways

We tend to think about pillows as just the surfaces that go underneath our heads. However, as a side sleeper, it helps to have one thin pillow between your knees. This is interesting because people think that only pregnant women should employ this technique.

#6: The Tennis Ball

Did you ever think about using a tennis ball to help you sleep? I don’t think you did, but it is connected to a technique recommended by experts. The tennis ball is used to help you remain in a side sleeping position all night long (helps to reduce snoring). If you tape it to your shirt, whenever you turn during the night, it will be uncomfortable to sleep on your back and you’ll return to the initial position.
