    Question Has sleeping on a hammock changed the way you sleep in a bed?

    A simple out of curiosity poll... Has sleeping in hammocks changed / affected your sleeping in bed?

    From recent reading I have noticed some people saying they now sleep different in their beds since camping in hammocks. I am one of those... I was never able to fall asleep on my back, only facing down and having one arm squeezed under me (yeah, weird, I KNOW), but since I permanently changed my bed for a hammock, every now and then when its necessary to sleep in a bed (for example when staying at my GF house) I just lay my back on the bed, close my eyes and voila!, pretty much the same as what happens for me in hammocks.

    So if it has, it would be nice to hear how it has... so add a little comment post to the poll. Thanks.

    PD. This is useful when I talk other people into hammocking, i just don't like to make things up, not that I believe in statistics... :P

    I seem to be sleeping in stranger and stranger positions, rather than just on my side. Like hooking one knee in an elbow while laying on my side. I can sleep on my back in the hammock but still can't in the bed.

    Make me wish I had a hammock in the bedroom.

    yes, I now find that when I get up in the mornings (when sleeping in my bed) that I notice more, all the aches and pains that my back is telling me!!! I don't think the aches are new, I just think that because I don't have them at all when I get out of my hammock, that I now "notice" them more when I'm in a "bed".

    Same with me. The biggest change is I wish I was in the hammock, instead of the bed. Don't quite have the room to hang my hammock in my room.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.
