As the blogging daughter of Main Street Inn B&B, a place that specializes in comfy slumber, my sleep fascination seems ironically fitting. There are many aspects to discuss in regards to the universal act we all enjoy. However, I feel “position” is a topic that deserves a look beyond the sleepy surface. Some choose to curl up in a ball, lay on your back, or hang from a tree. That last one was for our readers that are also bats.
Many of us decide which snoozy angle feels best and stick with it forever. Then again, my experience only extends to age 24. Maybe I’m being ignorant and sleeping positions do evolve with old age. I’ll have to ask my mom about that one. : )
For as long as I can remember, these lids aren’t peacefully closed until I’m on my belly, head to the side, hugging a pillow. According to Sleep Nicely, the technical term for this position is “freefall.” However, it wasn’t the focus on body shape that caught my eye in Sleep Nicely’s post. Instead, I was hooked by the further research that delineated what the position meant about you as a person. Not unlike silly astrology books we all buy to “find out who we are, maaannn,” Dr. Ganesh Narasimhan provides an intriguing outlook for 6 of the 10 common sleeping positions. Between you and me (and everyone else because this blog is public) I found my corresponding description to be freakishly accurate. So now it’s your turn! Admit to your style, read the description and share how accurate or inaccurate you find it to be. The result may surprise you.
