Re: i worry too much
First of all, I would not phrase it "I worry too much". I would phrase it that "I am thoughtful about the details", which is a good thing since vigilance is the price of safety. But to answer your question.
I generally sleep with my head where there is the least relative amount of motion. The pitch axis of most boats is approximately where their center of their keels are located, and so I sleep with my head aft of my feet when I am sleeping forward, and my feet aft of my head when sleeping aft. That said, many boats are laid out where they only have a suitable bulkhead that can serve as a headboard at one end of the berth and since I like to sit up an read, and since I hate having to pick up pillows from the deck, In those cases, at least at anchor, I sleep with my head against the end with the headboard.
