How to Learn to Sleep on Your Back
Sleeping on your back provides a lot of benefits — it keeps your spine properly aligned, prevents headaches, and even reduces sleep wrinkles on your face. 5-Minute Crafts is about to give you some words of advice on how to train your body to sleep in this position.
1. Choose the right mattress.
⛔ Don’t sleep on a mattress that’s too soft. Otherwise, your hips and lower back might sink into the bed and you’ll get uncomfortable.
2. Get the right pillow.
⛔ Your pillow shouldn’t be too low or too high. Otherwise, it will put unnecessary stress on your neck.
✅ For the best support, try to use 2 pillows — put a small rounded pillow under your neck and a flatter pillow under your head.
✅ Instead of a neck pillow, you can also use a rolled-up towel.
3. Support your knees.
✅ Instead of a pillow, you can also use a rolled-up towel.
4. Spread out your arms and legs.
⛔ Don’t try to keep your muscles stiff and your arms and legs straight during the entire night.
✅ You can also raise your arms above your head in a goal post position.
5. Build a pillow fortress.
6. Use a weighted blanket.
✅ Replace your ordinary blanket with a weighted one. It will make tossing and turning more difficult and prevent you from turning on your side or stomach.
