"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Chances are,you have a favored sleeping position a survey by sleep expert professor Chris Idzikowksi found 95% of us do and it could be affecting your body.

    @Saira I have just seen the above interesting connection between personality type and sleeping posture.

    I do take every position in sleep, because I never feel comfortable taking a single position. Sometimes I even jump from my bed to floor ;)

    Haha @rahil11 it is not a position it is an action.

    @rahil11 when it's hot, the floor is sometimes a lot more comfortable!

    I tend to sleep flat on my front. I don't know what that says about me. But at least this means I don't snore.

    Yes I am a hard nut to crack. @rahil11

    @mherdge, I wrap a wet sheet over my body every day while I prepare myself for sleep to lessen the effect of heat. It extracts heat from my body, and I feel much better then. I think our floor is much hotter than the our beds here. But if you feel comfortable sleeping on the floor, it's then good to sleep there.

    @meu, then what? ;)

    I have the same style and I have some reservation about the interpretation written on above picture. I mean "Shy" ;)

    I have the third style of sleeping.But I am moving a lot during the sleeping.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,967 mod
    Me too, and my husband says I do not turn softly to an other position I more or less jump.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @meu I think I should find the updated version of Oxford dictionary where I could find some changed meanings of "shy". :)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @dee I also change sided during my sleep especially in hot weather because of the restlessness caused by sweating.
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Hermine LOL sympathies for your husband :D
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @bubbli yeah I think some people are shy by heart and pretend like they aren't; that's me. ;)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @meu I am also a very shy person. Did you notice it during our meeting in Expo. :D
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Haha @bubbli you aren't shy atleast. You were very talkative and to be honest I take ages to be that much talkative with people. :D
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @meu LOLs. shhheeee don't disclose my secrets here. But, I talk less than @mheredge and I am sure the day I will meet her would be the longest day in terms of discussion, chitchat, and fun. ;)
  • madhugmadhug Posts: 787 ✭✭✭
    I keep changes my positions while i am sleeping. If it is hot i take first position as you mention on the picture, if it is cool aromatically i went to last position.

    Yesterday in a shop I found among other things a small red boxing glove fixed on a stick. It is thought for snorers. The person who gets awaiked by the sound can hit the snorer with this glove.

    I wouldn't like to be sleeping anywhere near you @Hermine. I'm very grumpy if I'm woken up suddenly!
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,967 mod
    @Marianne, are you snorring?
    I didn`t say I bought it, did I?
