If you’re a side sleeper like myself then this hammock angle provides you a flat enough surface to find the ultimate side position. Who knew you could actually sleep on your side in a hammock?
I was amazed the first time I found this position, and couldn’t believe how comfortable it was. I also have the hardest time falling asleep on my back in a bed, even though doctors say it’s the healthiest. In my hammock I often find myself not realizing that I have fallen asleep and stayed asleep on my back. So even though I am a dedicated side sleeper, I have found an immense amount of comfort sleeping on my back in a hammock as well.
The truth of the matter is that many people suffer from insomnia and we all experience shifting in our sleep at some point. Hammocks remove pressure from our bodies and essentially allow us to rest in a natural way without restrictions, while also giving our brains blood flow by elevating our head. This is why millions in other cultures treat their bodies to the restful sleep hammocks provide.
