What position do you prefer to sleep in?

Side Sleeper

Sleeping Positions-log-roller

LOG ROLLER

The sleeper rests on their side, legs extended straight and arms in place.

Log sleep position, in which the sleeper rests on their side, legs extended straight and arms in place, is the second most popular position for any sleeper. Though the sleep position looks stiff, a sleeper with style like this is anything but rigid and cold. Log sleepers are typically social and easygoing people. They converse with all kinds of people but can prefer running with an A-list crowd. They are also very trusting, which can sometimes make them seem a little more gullible to outsiders.

THE YEARNING DREAMER

The sleeper snoozes on their sides, but this time their arms are stretched out in front of them: think like a mummy.

The yearning dreamer sleep position is related to the log. The sleeper snoozes on their sides, but this time their arms are stretched out in front of them: think like a mummy. Studies have shown that people who choose this position are typically inviting and open. Yet, they can be suspicious of new friends and acquaintances. The Yearning Dreamers are also as slow and deliberate when it comes to decision making, but once their minds are set, they are set on that path. Good and reliable friends. 

Back Sleeper

Up and at 'em, sargent! A person that sleeps in the sleepy soldier sleep position sleeps on their back, with their arms straight down at their side -- like they are standing at attention. Sleepy Soldiers live up to their name. They are strong, silent, and focused people who don't like a big fuss. They love structure and take themselves very seriously. This also means that they can have high expectations for themselves and others around them.
This is also a sleep position that can lead to snoring.

SLEEPY SOLDIER

A person that sleeps in the sleepy soldier position sleeps on their back, with their arms straight down at their side - like they are standing at attention.

The shooting star sleep position is the least popular sleep style by numbers. Truly unique. They lie on their backs with legs stretched out, their arms stretched up beyond their head, looking like a starfish on land. People who sleep like this may have an unconventional style, but are very loyal friends and make relationships a great priority. They love to be supportive, acting as a sounding board for their friends' problems, and will go out of their way to help. This makes perfect sense since it the shooting star makes them look like they are perpetually reaching their arms out for a hug.

Stomach Sleeper

THE SKYDIVER

A skydiver sleeps on their stomachs, head to one side, with their arms wrapped around behind a pillow.

A skydiver sleeps on their stomachs, head to one side, with their arms wrapped around behind a pillow. As the name suggests, skydiver sleepers have open, playful, and downright fun personalities. They are usually to-the-point with what they want, but sometimes this comes off as brash. They may seem free-spirited, but skydiver sleepers can be secretly anxious and crave control of a situation. They tend to be risk-takers. This sleep position takes up space and will benefit from at least a Queen or King size mattress.

THE BABY

The baby, or fetal position, is where a person sleeps on their side with their legs curled up underneath them.

The baby, or fetal sleep position, is where a person sleeps on their side with their legs curled up underneath them. This is the most popular sleep position of all. According to a survey performed by sleep specialist Chris ldzikowski, author of the book, Learn to Sleep Well, 41 percent of all sleepers use this sleep position. It makes sense - since we all did this once in the womb. If you use the baby position while you sleep, you may have a tough exterior that hides a shy and sensitive nature inside.
