New hammock users often have trouble finding the most comfortable way to sleep. One of the most common mistakes users make is placing their head and feet in line with the anchor points. This would essentially mean that you will be sleeping lengthwise.
While it would be fine for short periods of time, it is inadvisable that you sleep like this throughout the night because it could cause your back to ache. Instead, we suggest that you try sleeping diagonally instead, with your feet just slightly higher than your head. The difference may be subtle, but you will immediately notice the difference.
