Relationship experts often say “never go to bed on an argument” - but new research suggests it is what it happening in the bedroom that is causing couples to squabble. A poll found a whopping 83% of British pairs argue over sleeping habits.
One in five couples even sleep in separate beds in order to save their relationship, according to the poll by Climsom.
One in three couples questionned acknowledged that temperature, and subsequent health problems, have a major effect on the quality of their sleep and resulted in tossing and turning throughout the night.
Professor Damien Leger from the Sleep and Vigilance Center in Paris says that when we sleep, our body temperature drops and if the environment doesn't correspond to this, the body struggles to achieve its desired temperature for a comfortable sleep.
The team recommend looking into ways to keep your body temperature constant, be that separate duvets or separate beds. You can effectively increase both the quality and the amount of sleep you acquire during the night by 23 minutes, making you more rested and relaxed to have a healthy relationship the next day.
