People have different sleeping styles and each style can reveal a lot about their behavior and traits. But do you know what is the best position to sleep and are you among the ones who sleep in the best position?

According to a survey published on November 23, 2015 by a bed manufacturing firm based in the UK, it’s better to sleep on the left side of the bed if we want to start our day on a positive note by waking up happy.

The study revealed that people who usually slept on the left side were 8% likelier to have friends and like their work, 4% more inclined to wake up in a good mood and 9.5% more likely to have a more positive outlook on life.

On the other hand, those who slept on the right side were 9% more inclined to prefer their own company, 7 % more likely to get up in a bad mood, 5 % more likely to be pessimistic and 3% more likely to dislike their job.

During the study, 1000 people across the country were questioned to find out the impact of our sleeping habits on our mood, career, and outlook on life.
