Healthier to Sleep on Your Left Side
Sure, we spend about a third of our lives sleeping (or trying to). Just the same, we don’t seem to have perfected it to any great extent.
Take your sleeping position, for instance.
Each way you set your body affects your health in different ways -- for better or worse. Sleeping on your back can be dangerous if you have asthma or sleep apnea because it increases breathing risks. Sleeping on your right side can aggravate digestive problems.
And so we’re left with the left.
Sleeping on your left side has several benefits -- including helping you digest better and easier. It improves your digestive system by allowing your body to extract nutrients and dispose of toxins faster and more efficiently.
In addition, it also affects your circulation and cardiovascular health because the heart is better able to pump downhill and the blood circulates more efficiently back to the heart.
So turning over a new leaf, as far as your sleep goes, could be as simple as turning over.
