A sleep expert has been slammed online after revealing the number one mistake people make when they turn in for the night – and suggesting an ‘easy fix’ to eliminate the problem.

Posture expert James Leinhardt went viral on TikTok when he publicly condemned those who choose to sleep on their stomachs.

The expert, who is ‘obsessed with spine health’, said the position adds unnecessary pressure on the neck and spine, and putting your top leg over mid-slumber exacerbates the situation.

In the video, which has been seen over 2.9 million times Mr Leinhardt suggests ‘tweaking’ your sleeping position to make sure your major joints are ‘stacked over each other’.

This eliminates any twisting in the spine, he explained, and is crucial for spine health.

But not everyone was convinced by the ‘easy fix’ with many people calling him out for offering a completely new sleep position instead of tweaking a comfortable one.

‘Such an easy fix?!? It’s a totally different position and not comfy in the slightest,’ one person complained on the video.

While another offered: ‘I would rather sleep in position one and risk the back problems.’

‘I have been sleeping on my stomach for 17 years and I don’t have any back problems,’ fired another.

While others argued the ‘first position’ feels more natural which ‘means it is right’ and said people should just listen to their own body.

But some defended the posture expert.

‘You should listen to him. I slept in position one for a long time and now I have chronic back pain which makes me sad,’ he said. 

Others said the video made them feel ‘overwhelmed’.

‘We gotta stress all day long then the one peace and relaxation time now I have to stress if I’m doing that right,’ one man complained.

Mr Leinhardt’s website explains the different ‘bad’ sleeping positions in depth and explains how each one hurts the body in different ways.
