If you woke up this morning alone, maybe you should ensure you don’t wake up alone the next morning as you could be missing out on a lot of health benefits. If your reason for sleeping alone is because you are single, then maybe you should get yourself a partner soon; if your reason is because you had a big fight with your husband/wife, then you should just make up today so you don’t lose out on the benefits you could get when you sleep with someone.
According to a research by Andrea Petersen in The Wall Street Journal, you get a lot of health benefits when you sleep with a partner in the same bed. Sleeping together with your partner promotes feelings of safety and security, which may lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone.
Sleeping together with your partner on the bed may also reduce cytokines and boost oxytocin, the so-called love hormone that is known to ease anxiety. No wonder it’s been noted that sleeping with a partner may be a prominent reason people in intimate relationships tend to be in better health and live longer than sad and lonely singletons.
If you want to get the best results from sleeping together with your partner, maybe you should try sleeping naked. According to a survey which was commissioned by Cotton USA, sleeping naked together builds a sense of closeness and intimacy, which in turn, strengthens your relationship.
So don’t forget to sleep with your partner tonight.
