3. In the morning, when you wake up, you are 1cm taller than you will be when you go to bed
The reason for this is that the joint capsules lose some of their synovial fluid. This decreases your size slightly. Not only this, but the connective tissues that help your joints become more and more compressed throughout the day. This is because of the stress of the days activities and also because they try to counter the affects on your body from gravity.

We all have a very different way of sleeping, some of us prefer to sleep on our fronts where others prefer to sleep on our sides. However, we are actually the only animals that can sleep on our backs. Many people find this unnatural and not comfy at all, but others really enjoy sleeping on their backs. There’s a link between sleeping on your back and snoring loudly… so, if you’re a loud snorer then maybe see if you’re sleeping on your back or not!
