Who taught you the proper way to sleep? The answer, nobody. We have just adapted to what we thought felt good and we stuck with it. But have you ever woke up with pain? How we sleep has a major effect on the well being of our spine and can easily cause pain.
Dr. Harris learned the best way to sleep from Nasa, when Astronauts are in space at zero gravity.
Astronauts sleep with their knees bent, arms bent, back straight and a neutral neck, putting their body in a natural relaxation pose. When astronauts sleep their joints go to mid range and the muscles go to neutral, which is the best state to get quality sleep. We can imitate this by using pillows to support. This is benefical because hugging a pillow between the arms and legs makes those limbs feel like they are doing something and it’s the most restorative position for the spine.
