Most people are familiar with the idea of “sleeping their way to the top,” but what if you could sleep your way towards a healthier lifestyle? In this post, we’ll tell you how knowing your sleep type can help you improve the quality of your sleep and become a better sleeper.
There are three main types of sleepers:
- Side sleepers, who prefer to lie on their sides with their knees bent and feet crossed
- Stomach sleepers, who like to lie flat on their backs or stomachs with legs straight out in front of them
- Back sleepers, who tend to favor sleeping on their backs even if they don’t always do so (this is the most common type)
Feel free to try different kinds of mattresses and pillows
Try different kinds of mattresses and pillows. It’s important that you find a mattress that suits your body type, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different types before purchasing one.
If you are having issues sleeping well, it may be worth trying new things in order to improve your sleep quality.
What mattress is right for me?
Finding the correct type of high-quality mattress for your sleep type is critical to maximizing the quality of your sleep. If you’re a side-sleeper, your mattress should be firm enough to support your body.
For those who are back- or stomach-sleepers, your mattress should be comfortable and not too soft. If you’re a back- or stomach-sleeper, but also have some arthritis issues or other health concerns that require extra cushioning in certain areas (such as the hips), then choose a medium firmness level for those parts of the body where extra cushioning is needed.
Pillow recommendations based on mattress type
If you have a soft mattress, we recommend the down pillow. If you have a medium mattress, we recommend the down pillow. If you have a firm mattress, we recommend the latex pillow.
Knowing your sleep type is the first step towards a better night’s rest. If you’re not sleeping well, it can affect every aspect of your life–from how much energy you have during the day to how often you feel like skipping out on plans with friends.
Knowing what kind of sleeper you are will help ensure that you get enough rest at night so that you can wake up feeling rested and refreshed in the morning.

Sleep is important for health, mood, energy levels and weight control. It also helps with mental health, creativity and memory.
