People who sleep on the left side of the bed are more likely to be in a good mood, have more friends and love their jobs.
The bedding maker, with headquarters in Wigton, England, surveyed 1,000 people in the United Kingdom, asking about their preferred side of the bed, mood, outlook on the world and other topics, in a study from Sealy UK.“Lefties”—those who sleep on the left side of the bed—were likelier to be in a good mood in the morning, have a positive outlook on life, enjoy their jobs and have a lot of good friends. “Righties” were more likely to be in a bad mood in the morning, be pessimistic and prefer their own company.
“While the margins are small, the research certainly highlights an interesting trend: Could it be possible that the left side of bed is the ‘right’ side?” says Neil Robinson, a Sealy sleep expert. “For many co-habitating couples this may prove problematic. With each side of the bed a fiercely guarded territory, changing from right to left may not be that easy. The good news is, for those ‘righties’ without a choice, the real way to wake up in a good mood each morning is less about which side you sleep on and more about getting 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep each a night on a supportive, comfortable bed.”
