7 Reasons Why You Should Sleep On Your Left Side
7. Improves Digestion
You may have heard that eating right before bedtime is not a good idea because that food will just stay as is. This is certainly a myth because digestion occurs throughout the day, and probably only several hours after a meal. And even though it’s going to happen regardless of if you are asleep or awake, lying on your left side will ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
