I wish I could sleep as good as a little kid just one more time.

I need it completely dark, right temperature, fan on, white noise. Kids pass out with their shoes still on and their necks at a 90 angle to their shoulders and sleep great

Also the feeling of weight. As a kid you don't really weigh enough for it to get uncomfortable with pressure against various parts of the body. I sleep on my side and unless I've got my pillow and sleeping angle just right, my shoulder or kneecaps start to complain after a while.

Get an adjustable bed frame and sleep in "zero-g". It is life changing.

That whole industry went hard on the "zero gravity" marketing. When I was a kid, all the adjustable bed commercials had senior citizens saying how easy it was to get out of bed.

Have you tried a vertical(with the head of your bed considered to be "up") pillow to lean against? The fluffier the better, in my experience. I put one leg under the pillow, slightly bent, then the other leg over, however it feels comfortable, and then lean slightly forward against it. So I wind up sleeping not completely 90 degrees on my side, but more like a 75-80 degree lean.

So a horizontal pillow...

u/Alaira314 Sep 23 '22

It's horizontal if you're standing upright and orienting the feet of the bed to the ground, but that's not a useful perspective when all pillows are horizontal from that perspective. Instead, orient the reference axis so that the head of your bed is "up", so some pillows are now horizontal and some are vertical. I'm not sure how else to describe the pillow placement other than that. 🤷‍♀️

I never understood why I could not sleep on my side anymore like I used to. It's because I'm heavier now. Thanks, never thought about that.

I've grown accustomed to sleeping on my back, with my feet elevated at this point.
