Sleeping Direction – North

Our body is considered to be a very small magnet with the head and feet as North and South poles. In the same way, the earth is considered as a very large magnet with North and South poles.  When you sleep with your head facing north, as you are aware like poles repel each other and unlike poles attract each other, your head also repels earth’s electromagnetic force and as earth has greater magnetic force, it wins and you end waking up with a feeling of irritation and grogginess.  It can also give you an elevated blood pressures and headaches.
