If you are a person who wakes up in the middle of the night because you have seen a nightmare, we suggest you change sides.

Sleeping on the left side

According to a study done by Yuzuncu Yil University, those who sleep on the left side have more nightmares than people who sleep on the right side. In the study conducted by Dr. Mehmet Yucel Agargun involved 60 physically and mentally healthy people. They found that people sleeping on the left side saw more nightmares at night. According to this theory, sleeping on each side causes an imbalance, but the left side displays more emotions and feelings of insecurity, which according to traditional Chinese medicine are more related to the qualities of women.

Sleeping upside down

According to a recent study conducted by Dr. Calvin Kai-Ching Yu, of Shue Yan University in Hong Kong, which involved 670 adults, people who slept in the boat had positive and emotional dreams.

Sleeping upside down triggers a wide range of positive dreams, ranging from UFOs to walking around without any clothing. Dreams related to love, meetings with celebrities to erotic dreams are also common.

However, sleeping upside down is very rare because people usually sleep on their right side or back.

Sleeping on your back

Often, people who sleep on their backs place their head on the pillow at an uncomfortable angle and as a result they snore more. Also, those who sleep on their backs move more, which is why the dreams they see are often confusing and unpredictable.

Now that you know which sleeping positions affect the dreams you see, change things up by choosing a new sleeping position.
