This additional burden wears the heart out more quickly. Think about it – you spend more than one third of your life sleeping! To reduce the strain on your heart, sleep on your right side, or on your back. This simple technique will add years to your life.

    Are you insane? There is absolutely no clinical proof that sleeping on either side is better or worse for the heart. Also, sleeping on the back actually puts more pressure on key areas of your body, so that you’re more likely to snore and not breathe as efficiently as you would on your side or your back (which does put some strain on the heart, as well as raises blood pressure)- any good doctor (or person with sleep apnea) will tell you that.
    Sleep in whichever position is comfortable – it doesn’t matter (unless you snore or have an apnea, then avoid sleeping on your back, and seek treatment).
