What is the best position to sleep?

Many people sleep without worrying too much about their sleeping position. However, this detail is important because certain sleeping positions can cause physical pain or sleep disorders ( insomnia , sleep apnea, sleep paralysis, waking up during the night, etc.).

The different positions for sleeping

Here are the four and different positions most adopted during sleep:

Sleeping in the fetal position

As the name suggests, this position refers to the position of the fetus in its mother's womb. Adopting this position during sleep allows you to recreate a familiar and reassuring sensation, to rediscover this feeling of calm and thus improve the quality of sleep.

However, sleeping with your knees drawn to your chest and with your neck bent is not recommended for breathing. In fact, this position can compress the chest and cause breathing difficulties. Regarding the position of the neck, if repeated over a long period, it can promote the appearance of arthritis.

Sleeping on your side

This position should not be confused with the fetal position. Sleeping on your side is ideal for avoiding snoring and gastric reflux, which can affect sleep.

However, sleeping on your side can, in the long term, create shoulder and hip pain and cause sagging of the face and chest.


Sleeping on your stomach

This sleeping position should be avoided because it can cause sleep disorders and physical pain. Indeed, sleeping on your stomach with your head positioned on one side and, very often, a hand or forearm placed under the pillow, causes strong pressure on the muscles and joints.

When sleeping on your stomach, the spine no longer supports the body. If this position is regularly repeated, tension and numbness may occur, particularly in the neck, neck and jaw.


Sleeping on your back

This sleeping position is not preferred for sleeping but, however, is ideal for resting the body, relieving the spine and neck, reducing pressure on the joints, while avoiding certain inconveniences such as heartburn. However, this position tends to encourage snoring.

What is the ideal position to sleep peacefully?

The sleeping position must, above all, suit your body shape, your comfort preferences and any health problems. However, to avoid physical pain when waking up, certain positions are more preferred than others.

The best position to sleep and enjoy a good night's sleep is on your back. This position promotes alignment of the spine and then avoids back and neck pain. For better comfort, sleeping on your side is also tolerated.

The way you sleep can have an impact on your health. Insomnia, sleep apnea, waking up during the night, sleep paralysis and all other sleep disorders can be made worse by poor posture.

If in doubt about the sleeping position to adopt, it It is obviously advisable to seek the advice of a health professional.

Tips for getting a good night's sleep

To sleep better and stay healthy, it is essential to have a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips to improve the quality of your sleep:


Go to bed and get up at regular times

It's no secret that to enjoy a quality night's sleep, it is important to go to bed and get up at regular times. This good habit allows you to maintain a regular circadian rhythm and a stable energy level to be in good shape all day long. 

Do a relaxing activity before bed

Before going to sleep, you must limit exposure to screens because they tend to keep the brain awake and therefore disrupt falling asleep. Relaxing activities such as reading a book, listening to soft music, taking a hot bath, self-massage or meditating are preferred because they prepare you for sleep. In addition, it is strongly recommended not to consume exciting products (coffee, tea, alcohol, sodas) that could cause sleep problems.

Choosing good bedding

To enjoy a good night's sleep, it is essential to have quality bedding that is comfortable and adapted to your needs. A good mattress and pillow contribute to more restful sleep. In particular, there are memory foam mattresses and pillows that meet personal sleeping needs.

Take natural food supplements

Often rich in relaxing plants and vitamins, food supplements targeted for sleep can be of great help to sleep better. In fact, these products help to naturally prepare the body and mind for sleep. These food supplements for better sleep come in the form of capsules, tablets, ampoules or even sleep gummies .

Focus on Délicure sleep gummies

To enjoy a perfect night's sleep, Délicure offers sleep gummies rich in plants, vitamins and melatonin.

Composition of Sleep gummies

First, to design its sleep gummies, Délicure chose three plants known for their relaxing properties. Passionflower, linden and poppy are, in fact, ideal for naturally relaxing the body before going to sleep. These three plants help improve the quality of sleep because they help relieve stress and pain that can delay falling asleep and/or cause nocturnal awakenings during the night.

In addition, sleep gummies contain melatonin (sleep hormone). The latter is naturally produced by the pineal gland located in the brain. It plays an important role in regulating the sleep-wake cycle and promotes rapid falling asleep.

Finally, sleep gummies contain two vitamins B5 and B6 which help transform tryptophan into melatonin (sleep hormone) and serotonin (happiness hormone). Both thus contribute to rapid falling asleep.

Tips for using Sleep gummies

To benefit from their benefits, simply chew two gummies about thirty minutes before going to sleep.

To ensure their effectiveness, it is obviously important to have a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Contraindications of Sleep gummies

It is recommended to consult a health professional or doctor before consuming any food supplements, if you are a pregnant or breastfeeding woman, or if you are under medical treatment.
