The city that never sleeps: What your sleeping position says about you?

We’ve all been there. You spend (what feels like) hours tossing and turning, trying to wriggle into the most comfortable position in bed. You experiment with different angles, throw the duvet on and off and constantly rearrange the pillows. You just can’t find the right spot.

Then… the moment you’ve been waiting for. That perfect position. And that’s it, nothing is going to move you now, not even an earthquake of magnitude five on the Richter scale could shake you out of this bliss.

But what does this all mean? Well, according to Islington Now’s lifestyle guru Calum Wilson, your favourite sleeping position could say a lot about your personality.

  • The fetal position

With your knees tucked up towards your chest, the fetal position is for people who want to feel safe and sound by curling up into a little ball. This is for those who often feel the need to be protected and is ideal for hiding away from the outside world.

  • The log

A funny sounding position, and those who adopt it are often at the centre of the laughter in their friendship group. Log sleepers are sociable beings and love nothing more than making conversation, even with complete strangers.

  • The starfish

Starfishers are open souls. They are the one their friends go to to share their deepest, darkest secrets and are always happy to provide a shoulder to cry on.

  • The pillow hog

It’s probably not surprising to hear that, although they don’t necessarily mean to, the pillow hog is a selfish person. They love their sleep and anybody who happens to encroach on their territory will soon know about it as they battle for space in the bed.
