Sleeping used to be simple. You climbed into bed, pulled up the covers and closed your eyes. Today, it takes a consulting firm to figure out all the choices – conventional mattress or air, ergonomic pillow or Scandinavian goose down?

And what about sleeping positions? It turns out they have names, and they can even reveal aspects of your personality, in addition to contributing to such conditions as headaches and neck pain.

The most popular is the “fetal” position, indicating a shy and sensitive personality. Those who sleep straight on their backs, in the “soldier” position, tend to be quiet and reserved. Many people sleep on their side—the so-called “log” position. This popular position shows a small degree of insecurity and stress.
