Sleeping On Your Right Side
According to the Stony Brook University, right side sleepers have a reduced chance of developing Alzheimer's Disease. The study done by this university in New York believes that lying on the right side helps to clear waste from the brain, which makes the development of neurological diseases less likely. Doctors also believe that sleepers with high blood pressure should sleep on their right side. It gives the heart, which is in the left of your chest, more room, which could lower blood pressure.
The downside of being a right side sleeper, according to the bed maker Sealy, is you will have a seven percent higher chance of waking up in a bad mood. Experts also believe that pregnant women who sleep on their right side have restricted blood flow, posing risk to their baby.
