The correct way is to lie on your side, facing left. Because prevents gastric acid in esophagus.

edit for clarification: This method is efficient primarily when the lower esophageal sphincter (I had to Google the correct name) is not functioning as intended.

When will these bugs be fixed? I prefer to face to the right and would also like to be able to sleep on my stomach

The GitHub human branch maintainer peaced out forever ago, all attempts to establish communications aren't going so well and the issue tracker is piling up...so probably never

I mean if it's abandonware it's ethical to reverse engineer and open source the reverse engineered platform, maybe even fork it and provide some sort of extensible framework for various plugins, or convert the kernel to a new architecture or even virtualize it. Hopefully we can also work out the bugs and the more glaring issues soon (looking at you, upright vertebrae).

We're working on it, but the mf was on something, have you seen the digestive system class? Or the central nervous system class?

Some people have mirrored internal organs, so this advice may be the ophosite for you. But also, if it ain't broke don't fix it, sleep however's comfiest for you and lets you get the best sleep you can

False. The correct way to sleep is on a 7-11 sausage roller set to high speed.

  • The heat lamp creates warmth which you normally substitute with a dangerous choking blanket
  • the high-speed spinning flings off your sweat to keep you cool using Bernoulli's Principle instead of energy-hungry and dangerous fans or AC units
  • the constant flow of vomit and other effluvia helps you maintain a healthy figure instead of ridiculously augmenting your life with the high-risk activity of "exercise."

The throat anus, for those not used to the medical terminology.

I'm curious how accurate this is considering there's rarely ever air in your stomach so what is the point when it's effectively vacuum sealed.

You sleep on your left side to avoid gastric acid in the esophagus.

I sleep on my left side because sleeping on the right side angers up my sciatica.

We are not the same.

Sleeping on matter is detrimental to your health. To avoid back problems, learn how to sleep while levitating 3 feet off the floor.

[-] Ross_audio@lemmy.world 20 points 3 months ago

I genuinely sleep in a hammock and have done now for years.

It's not levitation but it is great.

Sorry, but sleeping in levitation has been found to be detrimental to your health, you need to sleep in a 0g environment

You know what's fun? The post-surgery "you always sleep on this side? Learn to sleep on the other one because you're going to be this way for weeks, motherfucker" sleeping position.

Sleeping on my back is soooo relaxing... when I can fall asleep. For some reason I have the hardest time falling asleep on my back, but when it does happen it's bliss.

[-] poppy@lemm.ee 22 points 3 months ago

I literally can’t fall asleep on my back lol. I can lay there for an hour and then the minute I roll over on my side or stomach I’ll fall asleep.

If I sleep on my stomach I can't move my neck the next day, right side my right hand goes painfully numb, left side my left hand goes painfully numb, back both hands go numb. There is literally no position I can sleep in that I don't wake up after a couple of hours and have to shift to a different position.

[-] stephen01king@lemmy.zip 16 points 3 months ago

You know the solution, you just have to sleep while spinning in place.

I just keep rolling untill I fall asleep. Trying to sleep in a specific position is near impossible. Even the best one gets uncomfortable pretty quick. Only thing I try to avoid is sleeping on my right side as it seems to be the cause for my rhomboid pain

I find it difficult to sleep on my back. I used to sleep on my side but I think that lead to a bit of QL aggravation.

Super cosy sleeping on my front though.
