Survey: Couples Should Not Sleep Together In The Same Bed

Should Couples Not Sleep In The Same Bed?

Do you find yourself tossing and turning throughout the night, left incensed by your partner’s snoring and often embroiled in a game of duvet tug of war?

If this sounds all too familiar, it may be time to consider sleeping in a separate room or bed to your loved one.

Indeed, a study has found that 29 per cent of people said that their partners were the reason they couldn’t get a good night’s sleep.

With research proving that poor sleep increases the risk of depression, heart disease, stroke, respiratory failure and increases the risk of divorce and suicidal behaviour, experts say it may be worth considering other options in the bedroom.

The survey was undertaken by the University of Leeds and Silentnight.

Sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan said: ‘Almost a third of Brits say they can’t get a good night’s sleep because they are disturbed by their partner. So for many people it’s clear that sleeping in separate rooms might make for a better more restful sleep.’

Poor sleep also totally wreaks havoc with our skin, according to a study conducted by University Hospital Case Medical Centre in Ohio.

They found that poor quality sleepers lost 30 per cent more water 72 hours after a skin barrier disruption, such as exposure to UV light than those who regularly have good quality sleep.

Crucially for women concerned with the signs of ageing, poor sleepers had twice the amount of intrinsic signs of ageing such as fine lines, reduced elasticity and uneven pigmentation, as well as recovering slower from sunburn. 

Lack of sleep also puts many of us in a bad mood – and it’s all down to science.

There is an almond-shaped structure located deep in the brain that is believed to play an important role in our emotions and anxiety levels.
