Sleep is something that plays a huge role in our lives whether we realize it or not. When it comes to our health the way we sleep can be holding us back in a sense.

It is important that you are getting the right amount of sleep and sleeping in the right position if you want to improve your overall health. Depending on what you’re dealing with you may be sleeping completely wrong. How do you sleep at night?

How you should be sleeping depending on your health:

1. Shoulder Pain

If you are experiencing shoulder pain you should sleep on the pain-free side with you legs bent slightly. If you would like you could grasp a pillow to your chest and another between your knees.

2. Headaches

If you are someone who deals with headaches often you should sleep on your back surrounding your head with pillows, this will prevent you from turning over. This will eliminate headaches.

3. PMS Pain

If you are dealing with PMS symptoms you should place a pillow under your knees and sleep lying on your back. This will relieve some of the pain.

4. Back Pain

You should sleep with a posture that works for you. Laying on your back is best I have found. Roll up a towel and place it under the curve of your back and a pillow under your knees. This should help a lot.
