We all have our preferred sleeping habits and without them, it can make a good night’s sleep near impossible, but we often disregard its importance in our daily lives. It is well known that a good night’s sleep results in increased productivity the following day, but does our sleeping position affect our working output? OnBuy’s Furniture Department discovered that the most common sleeping position is the fetal position, with a whopping 29% admitting that this is their preferred way to sleep. The second most popular position is the pillow hugger (24%). The freefall, the thinker and the soldier follow in third, fourth, and fifth with 14%, 13% and 10% choosing these positions as their favourite.

Guttmacher Institute finds that 218 million women in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) have an unmet need for modern contraception. In the 132 countries studied, the need is disproportionately high among adolescents aged 15–19 who want to avoid a pregnancy (43%, compared with 24% among all women aged 15–49). Fully meeting the needs for sexual and reproductive health care would result in immense health gains, including a reduction of about two-thirds in unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions and maternal deaths. Commitment to providing this essential care for all women is critical to upholding sexual and reproductive rights during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
