Sleep on your right side for better dreams

Can your sleeping position influence the steaminess of your dreams? One study says yes!

Forget about beauty rest: New research says your sleeping position can influence the steaminess of your dreams. People who snooze on their stomachs are more likely to have racy thoughts at night than those who doze in any other position, says a study published in the journal Dreaming. Lead author Dr. Calvin Kai-Ching Yu, an associate professor at Hong Kong Shue Yan University, says that risqué dreams may occur because of the even amount of head-to-toe pressure we feel when we lie on our fronts.

Try it tonight: For the sweetest dreams, flip onto your right side. Studies also show that right-siders have more positive “dream emotions” (and fewer nightmares) than left- side sleepers.
