This position pretty much describes it in the title- you look like a log while you sleep. By lying on your side with your legs stretched out and arms by your side, or folded up by your pillow, with a straight back- it’s the second most popular sleeping position!
People who sleep ‘like a log’ are very trustworthy, almost too trustworthy as they can sometimes come across as being gullible! However, they are also very conversational, getting along with most people. They also prefer to be in the company on the ‘in-crowd,’ being around individuals who are popular like themselves.
The yearner position looks a lot like the log. The sleeper snoozes on their sides but their arms are stretched out in front of them, kind of like a mummy. Studies say that people who choose this position are usually very inviting and open. Yet, they can be suspicious and are often very cynical. Yearners are also as slow as turtles when it comes to making decisions, but once their minds are set, they’re as stubborn as a mule about changing it.
3. Soldier (8%)
If you sleep on your back and somewhat resemble an extra crispy french fry, when sleeping in the ‘soldier position.’ Arms are straight by your side and legs straight on the bed while lying on your back. Check out how sleeping on your back is the best way to help back and chest pain!
According to The Sleep Health Organization; ‘ Sleeping on your back makes your tongue fall directly back. This can get in the way of your airflow.’ This increases the chance of snoring at night as you’re struggling to intake enough oxygen. Use these great tricks to prevent snoring!
A freefall sleeper dozes on their stomachs, head to the side, with their arms wrapped around a pillow. As the name suggests, freefaller sleepers have open, gregarious, and playful personalities. Yet they can be so to-the-point that it comes off as brash. They may seem free-spirited most of the time, but freefaller sleepers are also secretly anxious and crave control. Although they tend to be risk takers, they’re surprisingly sensitive to criticism as well.
The starfish position is the least popular slumbering style. Starfish sleepers lie on their backs with their legs stretched out, and their arms stretched up by their head, looking a bit like a cactus. People who snooze in this unconventional style are very loyal pals and make friendship a huge priority in their lives. They love hearing the problems of others and will go out their way to help when they can. Makes sense, since it the position makes them look like they reaching their arms out for a hug.
The fetal position, in which a person sleeps on their side with their legs curled up, is one of the most popular. In fact, according to a survey performed by sleep specialist Chris Idzikowski, PhD and author of the book Learn to Sleep Well, 41 percent of people sleep this way. If you fancy the fetal position while you catch your Z’s, you may seem to have a tough exterior, but are very shy and sensitive on the inside. They can also overthink a problem and worry unnecessarily
