We all toss and turn a lot during the night, but no matter how much we move around, we tend to start off in the same sleeping position.

Did you know you can tell a lot about a person's character from the position they sleep in? Well, if traditional tales are to be believed that is.

Read on to discover what you or your partner's sleep position say about you...

The sleep positions

  • Face down
  • Foetal
  • Log
  • Semi-foetal
  • Soldier
  • Starfish
  • Stork

  • Sleep position: Face down

    What is it?
    This one is quite simply a person lying on their front with both hands wrapped around the pillow and head turned to the side.

    What does it mean?
    These people are often the life and soul of anyparty, possibly even over the top. Unfortunately, they can also be bad at taking criticism and will fight their corner or opinion. This punchy personality also means they can sometimes want to try and control people.

    Sleep position: Foetal

    What is it?
    This position is fairly obvious and is similar to how babies are curled up in the womb. You'll be lying on your side, with your knees up towards your chest and your arms will be hugging your body.

    What does it mean?
    Although these people may seem tough on the outside, they're actually quite soft and insecure. They may seem shy when you first meet them, but they also soon warm up.

    Sleep position: Log

    What is it?
    In this position, a person will be lying on their side with both arms down.

    What does it mean?
    People who sleep like this tend to be quite outgoing and friendly, and like to be seen as cool and up with the latest trends. They may be a little too trusting, though, and can be taken in far too easily by others.

    Sleep position: Semi-foetal

    What is it?
    This is a very comfortable position and one of the most popular. Legs are bent slightly and so are the arms, often cradling the head.

    What does it mean?
    This position quite simply reflects how people feel about their lives - healthy, comfortable and balanced. Sleepers who snooze like this tend not to have many problems in their life.

    Sleep position: Soldier

    What is it?
    This position has the sleeper lying on their back with both arms down by their body.

    What does it mean?
    People who sleep like this are often quite shy and reserved, tending to be pretty quiet. They like order and high standards and also want the same from other people.

    Sleep position: Starfish

    What is it?
    In this position, the sleeper lies flat on their back, with arms out wide and legs stretched out, slightly apart. They tend to take up huge amounts of space, so good luck if this one is your partner's favourite!

    What does it mean?
    These people tend to be very outgoing, confident and happy, and get on well with others. They are often quite childlike in their trust of everyone and like helping people, whenever possible.

    Sleep position: Stork

    What is it?
    This position looks a bit like a stork, hence the name, with one leg straight out and one bent. The sleeper's arms are often the same.

    What does it mean?
    These people often have two very different sides. They can seem confident when you meet and talk to them, but when out of the spotlight, they're often very shy. Of course, the opposite could be true: they seem very laidback on the surface, but are actually extremely ambitious underneath.
