Do You Sleep in Separate Beds?

Bright Spacious Modern Superior Twin Bed Room at the Crowne Plaza Shanghai Anting
According to as article published in  Mens Health, 30 percent of married or cohabitating people sleep in separate beds, reports a new study from Ryerson University. Hmmm, I see I’m not the only one who sleeps on the couch from time to time. Aside of being “naughty”, there are some viable reasons for sleeping alone however. Snoring, talking or laughing in your sleep (I’m guilty of laughing ), stress at work or on the homefront, kid issues, different work schedules, and health problems. 

The two-bed setup doesn’t necessarily signal relationship trouble. In fact, it may be a good idea in certain situations. For example, if your girlfriend’s a night owl and wakes you up every time she comes to bed late, you could wind up in a bad mood the next day—which has been shown to exacerbate relationship issues and your sex life.

However, if you’re sleeping apart to avoid turmoil, your arrangement could be a symptom of something more serious.  Here are a few tips to try.

  • Spend a few minutes being the big spoon, then roll to your side of the bed—it’s difficult to get a good night’s sleep with your limbs interlaced.
  • Change your sheets regularly. She’ll feel more comfortable, which helps her to doze off more quickly.
  • Keep your bedroom like a cave—dark and cool—to boost the production of melatonin, the hormone vital to your sleep cycle.
  • If all else fails, there’s always the couch. We’ve all been there right?
