Top Tips for a Healthy Sleeping Posture

There’s no doubt that all of us will have been nagged to “stand up straight” at some point or another! But it turns out that keeping a good posture is not just to keep your nan happy.
Top Tips for a Healthy Sleeping Posture

The benefits of good posture range from:

  • Improved learning
  • Improved mood
  • Improved breathing
  • Slimmer waistline
  • Confident appearance
  • Reduction in neck and back pain
  • Improved digestion


By adjusting your body alignment, all of your organs function properly which enables the body to work more efficiently when it comes to breathing and digestion. This allows you to take in more oxygen and absorb more nutrients from food which in turn increases your cognitive function. Tension headaches are relieved as your body is able to support its own weight more effectively and your mood is likely to improve as you are no longer physically slouched. Good posture is also key to getting the most out of your fitness sessions, as your body needs to be operating at its best to achieve your goals sooner.


Ok, ok, you get it, good posture is really important. So how do you make sure you are maintaining a good posture at night?


One of the most important things to remember when maintaining good posture at night is to sleep in a position that helps you keep the curve in your lower back. Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees for support is a great way to keep the back in perfect alignment. If you are a side sleeper, try to keep your legs stretched out rather than bent at the knees, as this will help to create more of a straight line in your spine. Avoid sleeping on your front as this can cause unnecessary pressure on the back and neck which will lead to strains.


Your mattress is one of the most important tools in keeping good sleeping posture, so make sure you invest in one which is firm or comprised of supportive materials such as memory foam. Using a sleep monitor will allow you to check your nightly movements so that you can make adjustments accordingly.
