The posture in which you fall asleep can reveal a lot about our nature. The Sleep Advisory Service of England (UK), through its survey has enlisted six general sleep postures. This survey conducted an in-depth study between the correlation of sleep patterns and the nature of people. If a person sleeps in one particular posture for more than 55 minutes, it would be considered as his / her sleeping posture.  Here are a few sleeping positions that people adopt, and what this reveal about themselves.


 

1. Fetal Posture:
This is one of the most common sleeping positions. This is where one generally sleeps in a curled fetal position.

This type of position is where people who sleep on one side with their head resting on one arm.
