In the pursuit of perfection, human-being climbed the ladder of evolution faster than any other creature on this planet. We are continuously improving the ways that we do certain things to get better results and improve the lives of ourselves and those around us. Sleep is no different than any other subject in that respect. If you are suffering from insomnia, sleep apnea, back pain, or any other sleep disorder, we can assure you that this is not the end of it. There are many simple techniques you can try in order to gradually improve the quality of your sleep. Here, we gathered a few techniques (suggested by the experts) for this purpose.

About sleep positions

People sleep in many different ways. Although the way you sleep might not seem that important at first, it is shown by many studies that it can have a significant impact on your health. Surprisingly, the way you sleep also says a lot about your personality. In this website, we group people into six categories (which are statistically most common) based on the way they sleep and provide personality and health benefit analysis for each category. Interestingly, there is no single sleep position that works for everyone. Each sleep position has its own pros and cons. You might feel comfortable in one sleep position while your friend might not.

Our sleep consists of several phases and there are some really interesting questions that can be asked about it. For example, what is the nature of our dreams? Is there any connection between dreams and reality? Do all animals sleep? Is the nature of their sleep the same as human beings'?
