To sleep comfortably on your back, ensure your mattress is firm, choose a thin pillow, and place a small pillow or rolled up towel under your knees. If you're not used to sleeping on your back, it may take some time to become accustomed to it.
- Sleep on a firm mattress
Make sure your mattress is fairly firm. A soft mattress often causes back pain, leading to discomfort.
- Lay your head on a fairly thin pillow
Choose a pillow that is not overstuffed. A thin pillow helps cradle your head and neck while sleeping on your back.
- Place a pillow or towel under your knees
Placing a small pillow or towel under your knees helps support the spine. This position mimics the natural curve of your spine and increases your comfort.
