If you sleep on your back ...
Sleeping on the back is the best position for all those who have joint and spine problems. This position also prevents the occurrence of acids in the stomach and wrinkles. In spite of this, sleeping on the back is the worst position, if you have nosocleaf problems, high blood pressure, or if you're snoring.

If your nose is running, use a few pillows to lift your head. This will prevent the mucous membrane from holding in your sinuses. Make sure the angle is not too large, so as not to damage your neck. If you have back and joint pain, put a small cushion under your neck, a large, flat cushion under your knees and a cylindrically folded towel below the lower back. This will provide an ideal support for the spinal column, as well as normal blood circulation.
If you sleep on a stomach ...

The sleeping position in which the knees are lifted upward toward the beard can be very comfortable but has a negative effect on the back. This curved position limits diaphragmatic breathing, which itself prevents snoring, but if you have breathing problems caused by asthma, allergies, etc., do not sleep at all in this position.
To straighten your back, make sure your legs and hands are positioned in a natural position, and your breasts are "free".
