Go To Bed At the Same Time As Your Partner
Many couples report that they are out of sync with their nighttime routines and that they are not happy about it. One partner wants to stay up and finish the show, while the other wants to turn in early. This disagreement between couples puts more strain on the relationship than we think. Going to bed unhappy causes stress that weighs on our bodies and minds.
In our relationships, going to bed at the same time does not just improve our relationship health and intimacy. It also benefits our emotional and mental health as well. Here are a few reasons we should hit the hay with our partner.
Going to bed with your partner helps to synchronize your next day’s schedule. You are more likely to wake up at the same time as your partner, even if you fall asleep after them. This allows for a better start to the day as you can plan ahead together.
Laying in bed with your partner allows for prolonged skin-to-skin contact that we do not experience a lot of throughout the day. Laying together allows for cuddling, which improves our relationship health and helps to mend bonds that may have been strained earlier.
A lot of conversations that normally would not be had happen when laying together in bed. We may be too busy with chores and work to really listen to what our partners have to say. When we lay in bed with one another, it allows for conversations about the struggles we had during the day. Having these talks allows for our bodies and minds to relax a little and get a better night’s sleep.
Sleeping next to one another allows our minds to be put at ease and allows for us to relax more. The slightest contact, even touching feet, allows for us to feel connected to our partners and experience less stress.
Most importantly, going to bed at the same time as your partner allows for better sleep. It lets our minds experience deep relaxing sleep that we would normally not get if we were still stressing from the day.
