The Best Sleeping Position for Optimal Sleep

Walker discusses the impact of sleeping positions on sleep quality and brain cleansing. Lying down allows the body to better dissipate heat, which is essential for falling asleep and maintaining sleep. Walker also mentions that sleeping on one’s back can worsen snoring and sleep apnea, so it’s recommended to avoid this position.

Animal research suggests that sleeping with the head turned to the side may enhance the brain’s cleansing mechanism during deep sleep, although more human studies are needed to confirm this finding. While these are not prescriptive recommendations, they provide some insight into how sleeping positions might affect sleep quality and brain health.
