Hi everyone. Today, I'm going to talk about three tips to train yourself for back sleeping. If you haven't watched my previous episode, please check it out because I talked about the five reasons why you should really think about doing back sleeping and instead of side sleeping or barely sleeping. So if you haven't checked it out and if you already have seen the video, keep watching.[inaudible]
Number one, change your pillow to my favorite one. I keep explaining this all the time and the link in the description below, but back sleep support pillow like this doesn't have to be this brand, but this is my favorite. This is the third or fourth one I will be using for the past three, four years. And it's helping its working for me. It was so hard at the beginning, but because of this bump, yeah, see like this, I mean, I have a case, so it doesn't look prettier than this. This is a roll one naked version. But anyway, you see this as a bump. So I still do like this. I still do like this. It's not completely like this, but it's better than this. Right? Do you see it? So it's a game-changer for me. I hope you try something like this. Or if you don’t want to have this, um, you could try like a two pillow, one pillow, and another pillow on your side, both sides to kind of fix your head's position. Hairstyle matters too because it fits like this regular one. It bothers you. So I like this, and then it's easier to do back sleeping.
Number Two, actually, this is more important than pillow because the pillow is more like from neck to head only, but the reason why you cannot do back sleeping, you have to decide sleeping is because probably your body is asymmetrical. I mean, everyone has asymmetrical face and body to some extent, a bit, very asymmetrical. It's kind of hard to because you have a dominant side non-dominant side, every lot of things have a dominant side and non-dominant side. Like even leg, not just hand, right? So that's if the body is asymmetrical very much, you cannot. It's very difficult for you to do back sleeping because your spine is not straight.
The pelvis is a little bit tilting, so that's what you have to fix first. So my suggestion, when you are standing or sitting or walking, just really try to do, try to be symmetrical as, as, as much as possible and try to use a non-dominant hand. Like I, when I do the brush, my teeth, or dry my hair or those things, I try to use the non-dominant hand as much as possible. Many people are staying at home right now. And I would like to emphasize the importance of not crossing the legs when you're sitting. Right now, you guys watching this video, are you crossing legs or not? Try not. I try not to do that. And it's hard. It's hard, but you, you will get used to being very conscious about it because every time you cross legs, it's kind of tilt. Your, um, what's the word? The pelvis and the pelvis. It's like the, um, what's the word? The pelvis is like a stand of the spine. If the pelvis is tilted, of course, your spine is going to be tilted, right, asymmetrical, and then everything is connected. PPP, P P P P P P pit and the head is tilted. Everything is tilted. So it makes things, it makes it harder for you to do back sleeping. If you have to cross your legs for some reason, change, try to alternate every 10 minutes or something like that. Number three, before you go to bed, do a little bit of mini exercise to fix your spine. Doesn't have to be this specific exercise. You might know better than me, but I like doing using foam rollers like this.
Ideally, it should be longer, but I don't have this. So I use this like this and then just like tilt like side to the side and on the spine. And it feels so good. It's really good. You don't do this on the bed. You do own the more hard floor. I think it's easier, but I'm just doing it for the demonstration purpose on the bed, but just do like, well, like to the side we go and then a little bit more hip like this, and then also more neck, shoulder and neck, upper area, careful about the hair. Yep. And then just try to reset your bones. Spines, neck, not necks, neck, just one neck, and then sleep. Another thing I would like to mention is that you can change the pillow position every single day. If you're sleeping with someone else like today, I'm sleeping like this, I'm on this site and the other one is this side. And the next day I change. And then the next day I changed every day I change because I read the comment on someone was talking my kids in on this site and I'm here. So I'm sleeping, always like this side because my kid is here. Um, then maybe you can ask the kids to sleep this side and you sleep on this side next day change every day. I think that helps too. Even though I tried to do back sleeping.
If the person is here, I might be doing more this side, especially when I'm awake at the beginning. Yeah. Before I fell to sleep in a bed. So that caused an asymmetrical body. And I don't like that. So change every day. And another thing you have to have to, it's so hard to fix it. Don't try to, don't try to fix the sleeping side, sleeping completely suddenly to back sleeping. That's not possible. That's not possible. Don't believe that it's possible because it's hard. You do. You do little by little. You try to train little by little and then hopefully it works as always check my website kokofaceyoga.com to free download the newest yoga paper if you haven't checked yet.
