Why sleeping with your partner is good for you

Though it may not always feel like it, sharing a bed with your partner is actually good for you. Scientists have found that while the practicalities may cause some disruption (blanket stealing, snoring, sleep talking), the psychological benefits of sharing a bed outweigh the physical disadvantages.

According to the psychologists, shared sleep promotes feelings of safety and security.

Still, it’s nice to not wake up in the middle of the night with no blankets

Here are some tips on how to get a good night’s sleep, both physically AND psychologically:

Have your own blankets
That way you can roll over as much as you like without pulling the blanket off your other half.

If one of you goes to bed later than the other, change in a different room
As quiet as you might try and be, it’s never enough.

Get a big bed
More space, less elbows in the eye.

Invest in some sort of anti-snoring device
Your other half will love you even more for it
