But, not many our aware that sleeping on the floor further enhances the healing process and this sleeping style is also popular in the Japanese culture.
By sleeping on the floor, we don't mean sleeping on a mattress on the floor. This means sleeping on plain floor.
The health benefits of catching a shut-eye on the floor are endless. Therefore, we list down a few points that can help motivate you to try this out!
1. Posture: Sleeping on a mattress makes your body sleep in a wrong position. On the other hand, sleeping on the floor helps the body to be in the right resting posture.
2. Shoulder problems: If you suffer from misaligned shoulders, your neck and back are probably being subjected to a lot of pressure. This problem can gradually become chronic, thereby affecting day-to-day activities. You can realign your shoulders by sleeping on the floor.
3. Get rid of that aching back: Lying on the floor is soft on the back and makes sleeping easier. Sleep on the floor to keep that lower back pain at bay. Learning to adapt to this style of sleeping may be a bit hard at first, but will keep the spine straight and lengthen it to give you a feeling of physical catharsis.
4. No more misaligned hips: Poor posture, misaligned bones and imbalanced muscles give way to several posture related problems, including misaligned hips. Sleeping on the floor can banish these problems by realigning the hips.
In a nutshell, sleeping on the floor induces a calming effect on the mind and clears any stress or any kind of disorderliness from your mind.
So get rid of that fluffy bedding and experience it all for yourself!
