      It's been proven that men sleep better and have better protein synthesis if they sleep with a semen-encrusted anime body pillow

    When i was buying my mattress the guy there seemed very knowledgeable about sleep. Stomach sleeping is the worst position by far, puts stress on your lungs and twists your neck. Best position is on back, slightly elevated, almost like you're in a mildly cradled position facing upwards. That being said i too sleep on my stomach and find it difficult to transition after sleeping that way all of my life.

      I've been having success sleeping on my side sometimes, but other times the urge to sleep on my stomach is very strong. I can't sleep on my back at all because my airways close up and I start choking to death

      He's wrong about the lungs. Flipping people onto thye stomachs relives the pressure of the other internal organs on the lungs. I could see that it would limit diaphram movement though.

      it's hard to change your way from sleeping on your stomach, but extremely worth it.

    Sleeping on your left side is the healthiest followed by right side then on your back. Sleeping on your stomach is by far the worst.

    I sleep in a curled up ball, covering my ears and head with my arms. I don't think it's very good but I'm used to it and it's hard to sleep if I don't do it.

    Personally, I just pretend that the second I fall asleep I die, so however I lay is how I will be seen and displayed.
    I wrap myself in my blanket so it wraps around my straight legs, tucked beneath the feet, tuck it behind my shoulders, then place one palm on my solar plexus and then the other hand on top of that, make sure the elbows are snug and not uncomfortable, and then lean my head back and fall asleep. Pic very much related, my hair is approaching his length.

    When you're prepared for eternity you go to sleep with a calm mind.

    From a breathing perspective side-lying is ideal. Many people with OSA breath more easily laying on their sides, which opens up your airway. Side lying is the most natural position mechanically as well. When you're in a bed it doesn't matter much, but try sleeping on your back on the floor or the grass and you'll see what I'm talking about. I suspect that there are important and as if yet not understood implications for chronic MSK issues re: sleep posture, which is fucked up by modern mattresses. If you're fit its not a big deal, but every little thing counts in the end. I sleep on a korean futon mattress ontop of tatami mats personally as it is very firm, forces you to stand up from the ground like a proper human in the mornings, and is still comfortable.

      Breathing note: side lying is ideal from an upper airway perspective, but lying prone can be helpful for asthma or acute respiratory issues. In most ICU's we prone severe pneumonia patients from time to time which improves ventilation to posterior lung fields and probably helps with ventilation-perfusion (VQ) dynamics. So if you're a hunter gatherer with PNA try proning yourself.
