What this means is that if you sleep comfortably in a misaligned position, then our bodies will position itself so as to counter the prevailing misalignment. Just like when a person with only one limb can still easily move around because the body has adapted to the disability.
A simple proof to find out is when you often experience daytime sleepiness, headache, fatigue, or else lack of focus after a night’s sleep is enough to deduce the possibility that your body is poorly aligned during sleep.
