Ever thought the side of the bed one slept in could actually be determining happiness in your life? A new research has found that individuals sleeping on the left side of their bed led a happy and less stressful life.

Those who snuggle up for the night on the left are generally more cheerful and positive, the Daily Express reported, as in a survey, a quarter of people revealed having a bright outlook on life, compared to just 18 percent of the people who said they slept on the right side of the bed. Such people were also found to be better at handling heavy workloads and stress.

SleepTwo-thirds of the people sleeping on the left side said they were calmer than their partner in a crisis.

Those sleeping on the bed's right side more often tend to wake up in a bad mood, the survey found, adding that people who prefer the left side of the bed tend to have more confidence and are more likely to be in permanent employment than those preferring the right side.

However, while right-hand siders tend to earn more, those sleeping on the left are happiest at work.

In the survey commissioned by hotel group Premier Inn, a third said they loved their jobs, compared to just 18 percent of their right equivalents. One in 10 people who took to the right of the bed said they hated their work.
