People Sleeping | Sleeping Positions

Sleeping positions refer to the various natural postures that our bodies take on when sleeping. Linked to our unique individual personality types, our sleep patterns and positions are often indicators that can provide insights into a person’s character. While humans engage in all of the assorted sleeping positions at one time or another, the position that feels most comfortable and natural to yourself may reveal a lot about your current health and psyche.

How many calories do you burn sleeping?

Calories burned while sleeping is dependent upon the individuals’ metabolism, weight, and the amount of sleep each night. BMR (basal metabolic rate) accounts for the number of calories burned while at rest; this includes sleeping and sitting. A person weighing 125 pounds is estimated to burn about 38 calories sleeping an hour; multiplied by the recommended seven to nine hours, a potential of 266-342 calories will be burned while sleeping.

How do you get rid of neck pain from sleeping wrong?

To alleviate neck pain from a bad night of sleep, start by letting your head and neck rest in a neutral lying down position. Use a warm compress to boost blood circulation to the affected area. Getting a massage will further help with blood circulation and the stretching of the muscles. Light stretching, such as rolling and squeezing of the shoulder blades, can loosen up a stiff neck.

How do you stop snoring while sleeping?

To prevent snoring while sleeping, lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, avoiding alcohol near bedtime, alleviating nasal congestion, avoiding sleep deprivation and sleeping on your back, will be initially recommended. A doctor may also suggest the use of oral appliances, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), or upper airway surgery.
