2. "THE SPOON"
The suggested position, which is known as "the spoon," is when you sleep on your sides with your bodies pressed against one another.
The study found that this position helps lower stress, reduce back pain, and improve breathing while sleeping.
In the spoon position, you can fall asleep faster and enjoy a longer, deeper sleep. This is probably because we feel more relaxed when we are close to our partners and feel their warmth against us.
Additionally, this position helps reduce pressure on the spine and alleviates back pain for both partners.
3. "THE PILLOW HUG"
According to a study at the University of Hertfordshire, couples sleep together in the "pillow hug" position. This is when a couple sleeps back-to-back, with their heads on the same pillow and arms around each other.
It is thought that this position gives couples a sense of security by having physical contact while they sleep, while still allowing them to roll over if they feel like it.
The research found that 57% of couples sleep in the spooning position, where one partner curls around the other's back, with their arms wrapped around their partner. This is followed by cuddling (37%) — when both partners face each other with bodies touching.
Having said that, sleeping positions also depend on body size and temperature preferences. So it is best to choose a position that makes you sleep well and feel secure.
