When you’re in a relationship, you love to sleep against your lover. However, we like less when he stings the duvet and wakes us up in the middle of the night. To find a good sleep for two, here are some essential tips.
To sleep as a couple, there are always two camps: those who cannot sleep without each other and those who would prefer to have all the room in the bed (but who nevertheless make an effort).
Whatever your team, know that it is a good thing to sleep with your lover. When you are close to your partner, your body secretes oxytocin, known as the love hormone. This hormone makes you feel more in love with your partner and helps you sleep better, more deeply.
But it is not always easy to find the right balance (and sleep) under the duvet. Here are 5 tips to better share the bed and to avoid waking up in the middle of the night by nuisance snoring.
Say no to technology
The bedroom should remain a place of privacy for the two of you. Avoid falling asleep with your laptop in hand, watching TV or watching a computer screen. Instead, take advantage of this moment for two to chat, find yourself, cuddle or make love. It’s still better than scrolling through your Instagram feed, is n’t it?
Invest in a good mattress
“When you buy a mattress, it’s important to consider how you two will feel about it,” says Chris Brantner, sleep science specialist at PopSugar. “First, make sure your mattress is large enough for the two of you. Then, make sure the mattress minimizes the effects of movement, to avoid being woken up if your partner moves during the night, for example,” he.
In any case, you should choose a mattress that suits you both and on which you feel good.
Use separate comforters
Yes, it’s nice to snuggle up to fall asleep and wrap your legs around your partner for a big hug. Except that, strangely, in the middle of the night, you rather want to squeeze your guy who has just dug your duvet for the third time.
“By having your blanket each, you will probably be less likely to be woken up by the cold,” said the sleep expert.
Make love before sleep
In a romantic relationship, physical intercourse is a cement. physical intercourse allows you to get closer and release new hormones, endorphin, and dopamine, two hormones of happiness that help reduce and stress and soothe the body. Of course, if you have an o rgasm, it’s even better!
“A study by the University of Adelaide in Australia, done in 2017, showed that 64% of people who made love before bed, sleep better afterward,” says Chris Brantner.
Go to bed at the same time
It is very important that you both go to bed at the same time and fall asleep together. This time of going to bed and falling asleep is essential for the well-being of your couple. You avoid disturbing each other by going to bed but also allows you to find yourself for a little moment of intimacy.
Obviously, some nights, it is difficult to do otherwise. However, be sure to keep a constant pace and not to be too out of step.
