Sleep on the left to wake up happy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety - RELAXNEWS

It’s bet­ter to sleep on the left side of the bed if we want to get the day off to a good start, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey pub­lished on Novem­ber 23 by a bed man­u­fac­tur­ing firm based in the UK. The brand ques­tioned 1,000 peo­ple across the coun­try to find out the im­pact of our sleep­ing habits on our mood, ca­reer, and out­look on life.

The study re­vealed that peo­ple who usu­ally slept on the left side of the bed were 8% like­lier to have friends and like their work, 4% more in­clined to wake up in a good mood and 9.5% more likely to have a more pos­i­tive out­look on life.

Con­versely, those who slept on the right side of the bed were 9% more in­clined to pre­fer their own com­pany, 7% more likely to get up in bad mood, 5% more likely to be pes­simistic and 3% more likely to dis­like their job. Sleep­ing habits give clues to the state of our re­la­tion­ship. The 13% of the pop­u­la­tion who sleep in a so-called “yearner” po­si­tion, back curved with arms out in front are thought to have a com­plex per­son­al­ity — friendly but cyn­i­cal.

Those who sleep like a sol­dier, on their back with arms pinned to the sides (8% of the pop­u­la­tion) are thought to be rather re­served with a ten­dency to­wards loy­alty and hon­esty. The re­searcher says that the 7% of peo­ple who sleep on their stom­ach, with their head turned to one side are big dream­ers with an in­tense per­son­al­ity with rather sen­si­tive and some­times brash traits.

And the foetal po­si­tion which is the most com­monly adopted, by 41% of the pop­u­la­tion, mainly women, is thought to be syn­ony­mous with peo­ple who are sen­si­tive, emo­tive, and fear be­ing hurt.
