Sleeping next to someone you’re in love with, even if they’re a blanket-stealer or snorer, can have a great positive effect on you.
Here are 7 reasons why this is so:
1. It makes the connection between you and your partner stronger.
Sharing a bed with the person you’re in love with makes the connection between you closer and stronger. And in addition to making both you and your partner feel connected emotionally, this closeness makes you more satisfied with the relationship.
2. It lowers your stress level.
When you sleep next to the person you love, your body releases oxytocin, a hormone which is sometimes referred to as the “love hormone.” Oxytocin impacts emotional and social behaviors, thereby contributing to psychological stability, relationship-building, trust, and relaxation.
Most importantly, oxytocin reduces stress and anxiety. So, when you are in the loving arms of your beloved, your body is constantly releasing this hormone, which automatically makes you feel relaxed and peaceful and makes you forget your worries and problems.
3. It’s one of the best feelings.
Sharing a bed with the person you’re in love with is more than just physical closeness. It’s a comforting and heart-warming message that tells your significant other that they’re safe and protected in your arms. It tells them that you’re there for them.
4. It makes you feel more energetic when you wake up in the morning.
As I’ve already said, when you’re sleeping next to your partner, you feel secure and calm, and this contributes to having good quality sleep. So, as a result of this, when you wake up in the morning next to your partner, you feel more energetic, happier, and much better about yourself.
5. It’s the best way to end a busy day.
There is no better way to end an insanely busy day than to lie next to your partner and tell them everything about your day. There’s no sweeter and more comforting feeling than to be in the arms of your significant other, telling them how your day was and knowing that what you have to say matters to them.
6. It makes you feel and look younger.
There is an easy way to feel and look younger which does not involve spending astronomical sum of money on cosmetics. I’m sure you’ve already guessed that sleeping next to the person you love is the easy way to achieve this.
Like I’ve already said, sharing a bed and cuddling with the person you’re in love with can reduce your stress level and make you feel more energetic and relaxed. So, when you have lower stress levels and feel more energetic, your body feels a lot younger.
7. It’s a sign of a happy and long-standing relationship.
Couples that cuddle more often stay together for a longer period of time. Such couples are more committed and more faithful to each other than couples that are simply together for sex. And the reason for this is simple: Cuddling creates a closer connection and deeper intimacy than sex.
