Dave chats with Emma Edwards who shares New research from Ecosa has found that 45% of Tasmanians are sleeping in positions that can potentially cause health issues.
We’re all aware that the duration of our sleep each night impacts our wellbeing both physically and mentally, however research suggests that your sleeping position affects the quality of overall sleep and health as a consequence.
More than 4,500 Australians took part in the sleep position preference survey which found that 15% of us sleep on our backs, 23% enjoy a freestyle position, 6.7% of us are stomach sleepers and 55% are side sleepers, which has proven to be the best sleeping position for optimum health.
Emma Edward from Ecosa says “BMI and weight can impact one’s sleep position preference. It’s also important to be aware of health issues like respiratory problems which may arise from sleeping the wrong way.”
