In a research conducted, it was found that the 6 most common sleep positions not only affect our health, but also reveal our personalities to an extent. Read on to know what your sleep position says about you.
#1 The Freefall
In this position, the person usually lies flat on his tummy while his/her head is turned to one side. This kind of sleeping position is an indicator that the person is an extrovert and a little brash. They are the ones who appear with a lot of punch within them but often lack the ability to take criticism. They do take things personally. But that's only one side of the coin. Their sleeping position also helps them in the digestion process.

#2 The Fetus
This position is the most common position while sleeping – curling up on one side. This position is adopted by 41% of the world population. Now that's a huge number. The personality trait of these people is they are tough on the outside, but shy and sweet on the inside. They might take time to open up, but once they do, they are in a relaxed mood. In terms of health, the position can put severe pressure on the liver, stomach, and lungs if you favour the left side. So, you now know which side you need to favour.
#3 The Log
In this position, the person lies on the side and both arms by their side. The log sleepers are pretty chilled out. They trust people blindly, the downside to all this is that they can be fooled easily. There are obvious health benefits for people sleeping in this position. This position keeps the spine straight and helps reduce back trouble.
#4 The Yearner
The yearners lie on their side and have both arms out in front. Yearners are the kind of people who try out new things, but they are also suspicious at the same time. They are thinkers and decide on the benefits and disadvantages of a particular thing for a long time. Sleeping in this position can help you get rid of sleep apnea and acid reflux to some extent.
#5 The Soldier
In this position, the person lies on his back with both arms at his side. Such people are quiet and reserved. To some extent disciplinarians too. They aren't the ones who make a fuss about things. For them the standards are always high. While all this is great, they might have to face health issues like difficulty in breathing, snoring, etc.
#6 The Starfish
In this position the person lies on his back while his arms are up. Such people have very good listening capacity. They are trustworthy friends and shun the limelight. Just like the Soldier position, these people too having snoring and other health issues.
