Waking Up

So after a couple of nights of hardly any sleep, I am exhausted. I did get some kind of a respite this evening, though. I got off work early and hopped into my comfy bed.

When I awoke two and a half hours later (not nearly long enough), I realized I was on my back. And that's what this post is all about. I love waking up on my back. For some reason, it makes me feel quite invigorated. I was in a better mood all around because of it. What's weird is that I go to sleep on my right side. I never sleep on my back, so it was a nice treat.

Anyway, I want to do an extremely informal poll -- what's your favorite way to sleep? On your side, stomach, or back? Do any of you actually sleep on your back? Do you find it as relaxing as I do? Please, leave a comment!

Thing I'm thankful for: helpful friends.

I usually sleep on my right side. I wish I could sleep on my back though!

I also sleep on my right side. For your very accurate survey, that's 100% that sleep on their right side. Although occasionally I'll flip to the left side or my stomach. Hardly ever sleep on my back. ~Karmelle

I start out sleeping on my left side, then switch to my right, then end up waking on my stomach. I'm indecisive even in sleep mode.

Depending on where the bed is located in the room, I sleep on a particular side (it doesn't make sense...I know...) and I curl up into a little ball. I tend to frequent the right side more of the time... Ohh...Now I can't wait for bed!! Yay for curling up into little balls ;)

I can't go to sleep any other way than lying on my tummy (w/ a small pillow under that same tummy)... Weird. But I never wake up that way--any random pose but that. I also curl up into little balls a lot. So comfy! I can sleep in armchairs, all balled up

I use to prefer to sleep on my stomach but being pregnant changed that. I had to sleep on my side so now that's my default position.

I usually find it the most comfortable to fall asleep on my back yes... but then if that's not comfy then one of my sides- but not for too long because then my legs tend to go numb or I get that restless leg thing. Then if THAT doesn't work, then my stomach. But if I'm really cold- then I find I'm the warmest if I'm on my stomach. Ha, ha... isn't it so strange how we have to fall asleep? I do agree though that being on my back is the best, especially with my woobie pillow bunched up just right underneath my neck to support it just right and to cover my ears. I'm weird.

I roll... I start whichever position is comfortable at the time, and in the course of the night I roll... I think I usually roll towards my right... Except off my stomach I think I roll left... It depends. ;)

WELLLLL! Those who sleep on their backs with arms at sides and feet outstretched and a little open are sleeping in the Royal position. Kings of old and Queens slept that way. Guess, because they had the best bed in the country and were guarded all night and dry. That pretty much explains it for you. Decendant of European Royalty! Love MOM yea, cant remember my blog name. hahah
