Sleep on the left to wake up happy
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.
