Improper rest can also give you a severe headache when you wake up, and it can make your day stressful. As important as it is to sleep well in the right position, it is also important to wake up from the right side.

A majority of the population is right-handed, thereby, Ayurveda and modern science consider it a good practice to wake up from the right side.

Hangover From Alcohol Consumption:

We all know the basic scientific phenomenon that decides which way the water in the toilet will swirl while flushing. A similar phenomenon is discussed here. When a person is completely drunk the previous night and wakes up the next morning, he, for sure, will feel sick and hungover.

Due to this hangover, a person is more likely to fall down and injure himself if he gets up on the left side of the bed while waking up in the morning. This is called the Coriolis Effect and is one good example of why you should always wake up from your right side.

Improper Sexual Positions:

There are many scientific studies which have shown that since most people are right-handed, he or she is more likely to injure that side when he/she tries to experiment with the improper sexual positions.

After straining yourself with sex, if you try waking up on the left-hand side of the bed, it is likely to cause an even greater strain on the right side.

Drug Injections:

Insisting on the same point again, since most of the people are supposed to be right-handed, it is likely that they'll inject themselves using this hand only, in case of insulin injections. This clearly explains that the muscles and nerves in the left arm get degraded with the constant drug injections, thereby making them weak.

If the person tries to wake up from the left side, he/she will have difficulty in supporting the weight of the body while getting up.
