This Dnews episode is brought to you by Casper.
How you sleep doesn't just affect whether or not you get a good night's
sleep can also affect what you dream about
and whether or not you're happy in your relationships.
Hey everybody this is Trace.
Thanks for watching Dnews.
When you sleep are you on your stomach? your left side?
Do you wake up on the wrong side of the bed?
All these things have been looked at by science
If you sleep on your left side you're probably more creative;
if you sleep on your right side of your bed, that's the bad side.
and sleeping on your stomach makes your dreams more sexy.
Science says our sleeping positions matter.
In fact according to a study conducted back in April,
the distance you sleep from your partner while in bed,
indicates how happy you are.
According to a survey of 1000 people in Edinburgh in Scotland,
most people, 42 percent by the way, sleep back to back
and 31 percent face the same direction
only four percent of people sleep face to face
Extroverts tend to sleep closer in general
but eighty-six percent of those who slept less than an inch apart were happy in their relationship;
while people who slept 30 inches apart are far less likely to be happy.
Remembering that this is survey data
so it is prone to bias.
It would seem that when human sleep further apart we are less happy.
Which I can tell you I've definitely experienced.
But this ain't the first sleep position study.
Back in 2003, the sleep assessment and advisory service in the UK
broke down the six basic sleep positions and compared them to their personality types.
The study included a thousand people from Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, China
Singapore and of course the UK.
People who sleep in the fetal position according to science are quote tough on the outside but sensitive at heart,
which amounts to 41 percent the respondents and twice as many of those were women.
But fetal is one of six possible sleeping positions.
fetal, freefall, starfish, soldier, log and yearner
starfish is the rarest and after fetus the log is the most common.
Sleeping in those positions can indicate a tendency toward acceptance,
cynicism more, maybe you're suspicious or, you're more friendly or even whether you're more brash
or you're good at taking criticism.
All that can be told just by how you sleep.
It's pretty cool that feels a little kind astrology like to me.
Medically speaking the freefall is good for digestion,
while the starfish and soldier often lead to breathing issues which include snoring.
Yet another study of 3,000 adults found that there really is a wrong side of the bed,
that's the right side. Kind of confusing.
25 percent of people who tended toward the left side see a positive outlook on life,
while only 18 percent of right-siders see that.
66 percent of the lefty sleepers believe that they're calmer in crisis,
have more confidence, and are more likely to be in permanent employment.
On top of that, 31 percent to them love their job,
while only 18 percent of righty-sleepers love theirs.
In the end, how you sleep affects way more than just well, your night's sleep.
A study in the Journal Dreaming found that people who sleep on their stomachs, for example
report dreams about sex and persecution and Erotomania more often
or an Erotomania is the delusion that a celebrity is in love with you
It's weird and science isn't really sure why this is, but it's definitely there
For sure more research is needed in this area.
I'm a freefall sleeper,
for sure although I don't necessarily agree with their personality assessment
But what about you?
