As discussed there are so many benefits to sleeping face-up. It’s considered one of the healthiest ways to sleep based on the below. Great for spine health: Sleeping on your back keeps your head, neck, and spine in a neutral position. This creates less pressure in those areas and will result in you waking up in less pain (if any at all). Reduces acid reflux: If you experience acid reflux, sleeping on your back can prevent this. Just make sure you are elevating your head enough; you want your esophagus to be above your stomach. Avoids wrinkles and fine lines: While there is minimal evidence, some studies have identified a link between the way you sleep and wrinkles. When you sleep on your side or stomach, your face ends up smashed into a pillow which can cause you to develop wrinkles over time. Sleeping face-up can prevent you from tossing and turning all night and could lower your chances of developing fine lines. Less puffy eyes: Sleeping on your back will prevent too much blood from pooling under your eyes while you sleep, resulting in you waking up with less puffy eyes. Relieves sinus buildup: If you’re sick and are experiencing sinus pain and congestion, sleeping face-up can help with congestion relief. Sleeping on your back with your head above your heart can decrease mucus build-up and will prevent a large amount of blood flow from gathering in your nose.
