There might not be anything as important for your health than sleep— and there might not be anything more revealing about your true nature than the position you sleep in! According to Lady Life Hacks, whether you sleep on your back, your stomach, your side or in the fetal position can tell you a lot about your personality and how you’re feeling, in general, about your life.
Sound a little crazy? We can see why – and like any personality “test,” take the results with a grain of salt – but the idea also makes a lot of sense. Body language can be very revealing, and it’s at its least controlled and most unguarded when we’re asleep. Of course, a lot of us toss and turn in different positions all night – sometimes as much as 40 times! – thanks to pain or insomnia, but we all have one we favor more than the others. When you have a morning where you can wake up naturally, with no alarms, pay attention to your position. More than likely, that’s your dominant sleeping position.
Lady Life Hacks elaborates on the idea:
Your subconsciousness dictates your body language. Your mind controls the way you communicate with the rest of the world through words, thus allowing you the ability to intentionally give false information. However, you can’t ‘fake’ body language. That’s why our gestures and facial expressions say more about us than our own words could. The most credible information you can get about another person is while they’re sleeping. When we’re awake, we have partial control over our gestures and facial expressions. When we’re asleep, our consciousness is inactive, and our body language is controlled exclusively by our subconsciousness.

If you sleep on your back . . .
. . . you’re probably feeling pretty good about life— and yourself! The open position of back sleepers often indicates confidence and total relaxation, and an openness to new people, experiences and situations. Back sleepers feel good about themselves in pretty much any situation, and often feel a lot of “psychological power.” If your back-sleeping position also includes widespread arms and legs, though, take heed— it could indicate that confidence is tipping over into arrogance. It seems like people who might take up more than their fair share of the bed might be trying to take more than their fair share in other areas, too.
