Pillow Talk: What Does Your Favorite Sleep Position Tell About You?

Uncategorized April 12, 2015

We've all heard of the old adage – actions speak much louder than words. But has it ever occurred to you that your favorite sleeping position can provide a lot of information about your personality and how it affects your health? Well, it can based on studies conducted by researchers from the UK Sleep Assessment and Mark Wright's Advisory Service.

The director, Chris Idzikowski, PHD (who also studied ex-Boyzone member the late Stephen Gately's sleep patterns for a TV show), and his team surveyed over 1,000 people from all over England about their sleeping habits. What they have uncovered makes for a very interesting read, and will reveal surprising things about you than you ever thought possible. Now before I bore you to sleep (I know bad pun), herewith are the results of that study.

The Sleeping Positions

1.   The Fetus (sleeping on your side with your legs curled up – just like a fetus in a womb)

The Fetus position is the most favored according to majority of the participants, taking in 41 percent of results.

–   What it says about these people:

Dr. Idzikowski says that folks who curl up this way in bed are hard on the exterior but sensitive inside – they build up an armor of toughness to protect their true, gentle personality. They also take some time to warm up to strangers and new people, but once you get to know them better they start to let their true colors show. Surprisingly, of the 41 percent who said that they favored this sleep position, women outnumbered the men more than twice. Also, people who have a tendency to sleep using this position must put a pillow between their legs to ease the strain on their body and make sleep more relaxing.

2.   The Log (sleeping on your side with limbs straight down)

15 percent of individuals reported to like sleeping in the log position.

–   What it says about these people:

If the people who like to sleep in the fetal position are guarded, then the opposite is true for these individuals. Gregarious and outgoing, they have no problems talking with complete strangers and mingling with others. However, they must be a little cautious because they tend to be to easily manipulated and are quite naive. Health wise, it is important that you lie on a bed that has adequate support and a pillow that is not too soft since the neck and head are positioned awkwardly and can cause some strain.

3.   The Yearner (sleeping on your side with arms outstretched in front)

13 percent responded that they sleep posed with the yearner position.

–   What it says about these people:

Pessimism is the keyword for these individuals who can be a little too paranoid for their own good. They are also reportedly stubborn people who are not easily swayed into making a decision, but once they do, they tend to stick with it for a long time. For those of you who sleep like this it is very important to find a very good pillow that can support the weight of your neck and head to avoid an unpleasant sleep experience or worse, a stiff neck.

4.    The Starfish

From the name itself, 5 percent like to sleep with limbs outstretched like a star.

–   What it says about these people:

If you need a therapist aka friend then you better find someone who sleeps like this. According to the report folks who sleep like a starfish are the best people to become friends with since they always have a ready ear for you to tell your troubles, and are quite selfless in times of need. Although their positive qualities are very rare, they do not like being the star of the show (again, no pun intended) and prefer to stay in the background.

However, sleeping in this position can put their back at risk since it puts it in an unnatural curvature that can place a lot of strain on the spine. Experts recommend either putting a pillow or rolled up towel under the knees and the lower back to ease the tension. Unfortunately, the starfish position can also cause snoring and an unpleasant sleep.

5.    The Soldier

8 percent have a tendency to favor sleeping on their back with the arms place on the sides of the body.

–   What it says about these people:

Just like a disciplined soldier, these perfectionists like to keep to themselves and are quite modest and reserved – they like no drama in their lives. A very sturdy pillow will greatly enhance their sleep since just like the starfish position, it can lead to snoring and breathing issues.

6.    The Freefaller

7 percent like to sleep lying on their stomach with their arms clutching the pillow and their head to the side.

–   What it says about these people:

Easily affected by criticisms and are quick to anger, these folks do not like being subjected under stressful situations. However they are very outgoing, and love being in the spotlight.

Just like the starfish position the freefaller can put a lot of strain on the spine, and if you really prefer to sleep like this you may opt to not using a pillow instead to protect the back from unnecessary strain.

The key to swimming with your backpack is for the person being able to float on water, and this mainly occurs because of buoyancy. To increase one's buoyancy gently press your weight onto your shoulder blade and let your head relax into the water. Ensure you are streamline as much as possible.

Ensure you don't sink and press your hands above the head, this will create support for your waist and create leverage for your legs.

(b)   PREVENT IMPORTANT ITEMS FROM GETTING WET

Use a splash cover to prevent your backpack from getting wet.

Keep the items that you want to remain dry in plastic bags or cover them in rain gear, for example, electronics. Tuck any equipment on the outside of the backpack.

(C)INCREASE BUOYANCY WITH THE BACKPACK

Put empty bottles to the outside of the backpack. In case, you have an inflatable life vest wear it as it increases your buoyancy despite the eight of the bag. If you have an air mattress place it underneath you, as this increases your chances of floating. If the backpack is sufficiently buoyant, use it to swim.

SWIMMING

Once you start floating and get comfortable the water, do a flutter kick with your legs and start crawling with your hands, lifting one hand in the air and keeping straight as it re-enters the water. Once the hand is underneath the water, bend it back. Bring it to the position next to your side. Alternate this repeatedly and keep your fingers together and palm as flat as possible.

  • Use your hands to cut the waters while you do the eggbeater kick.
  • Move one arm in a clockwise manner while the other in an anticlockwise manner. If your backpack is heavy and pulls you underneath the water, you can try swimming with one hand in the strap and another one free as you kick and crawl in the water.

BE PREPARED FOR UNLIKELY SITUATIONS WHILE SWIMMING WITH A BACKPACK

(a)   Know how to get away from a river current

If you are swimming in a river with high currents, do not swim against the current since this will drain your energy because you are swimming with a backpack but swim across the current in a diagonal direction. Swim in a steady stroke. You can place the bag beneath you and hold onto it if it can float. Don’t panic as this will also drain your energy. You should aim to remain calm.

(b)   Know how to get away from a rip tide

If you are swimming in the ocean and get caught in a rip tide, you can swim sideway and place the backpack beneath you if it can float to aid in swimming.

Don't as this might cause you to drown.

Keep swimming as far as possible from the riptide although this might prove tiresome. Swim in a steady stroke.

List of the Best Methods of Cleaning Methods Humidifier

Uncategorized April 9, 2015

Since you are checking how to clean your humidifier, then you have had one already and you do not need me to explain to you the benefits of using it, or to convince you to purchase one to start enjoying better sleeping nights for you and your family. So let’s go to an important question: Do we need to clean the humidifier? The answer, of course, is a definitive YES; it has to be cleaned because it is a device that generates water vapor which we and, specifically, our children are breathing, so we want to be quite sure about it. Another question would pop-up: “How often should we clean our humidifier?” The easiest and best answer would be: “Go and read its guide”. Reading the humidifier manual carefully is very important to get the most benefits out of it and to avoid some serious issues that may raise from the careless usage of this device (Check this short article about this aspect here: http://edition.cnn.com/2014/03/04/health/upwave-humidifier/).

Now let's go to the main question about the proper cleaning of our humidifier; there are general steps that are applicable to every humidifier in the market:

–     Unplug the device.

–     Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water.

–     Remove the water tank and clean it. To clean the tank, you can use undiluted white vinegar and leave it for at least 20 minutes, then use a soft brush to scrub it; When it is done make sure to rinse it thoroughly.

You can use hydrogen peroxide instead of vinegar if you like.

–     Clean the base of the water tank.

It is important to follow the manual guidance regarding disassembling the filter and the tank to avoid damaging the device; also to check if there are any special instructions or warnings that you should be aware of.

The cleaning process would be easy if the humidifier is used properly, but there are very important points to consider:

–     Use only clean and distilled water in the device, and make sure to change it EVERY DAY.

–     Do not use any chemicals during the cleaning process because it may damage the device.

–     Disinfecting the humidifier is very important during every cleaning process. It is common to use a teaspoon of bleach mixed in a gallon of water, peroxide, or white vinegar to achieve that.

The cleaning process itself is very easy to carry on, and it is not really a time consuming task; usually 30 minutes would be enough for the whole process if the device has been maintained well during its usage. The water tank may need special care due to the fact that residues tend to accumulate at its bottom and its base, especially, if the quality of water is not good, or if the water is not being changed on daily basis.

Finally, it is important to remember that you have to choose wisely the place that you would put your humidifier at because it may damage its surroundings by the humidity it provides. Also, the dampness that is caused by humidifiers could encourage the growth of bacteria and mold when it hits the right materials, so choose carefully the right place for you humidifier, make sure to change its water every day, follow the instructions of its creator regarding its cleaning procedure, and enjoy its health benefits.
