5 Health Benefits of Couples Sleeping Apart


1. Sleeping apart can make couples have a better night’s rest

Sleeping alongside one’s partner may be sacred – and not doing so may be perceived by some as a relationship on the rocks – but for others, it simply comes down to wanting a better night’s rest. While the couples are not distracted by the intention to have sex, they end up having the desired night sleep sleeping apart, according to Yahoo Entertainment.


2. Sleeping apart can improve a couple’s relationships

Eric Marlowe Garrison, a certified sex counselor and chair of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counsellors and Therapists, said that thousands of couples who wanted to improve their relationship and strengthen the bonds between them achieved that by having separate sleeping arrangements.

Manhattan psychologist, Joseph Cilona, electing to sleep apart can often minimize or eliminate sleep problems, like sleep deprivation, and save or enhance a relationship.


3. Sleeping apart can improve a couple’s sex life.

Wendy Troxel, a senior behavioral and social scientist at the Rand Corp. and author of “Sharing the Covers: Every Couple’s Guide to Better Sleep,” found that sleep separations make many couples appreciate their partner even more once they are together again the next morning – refreshing for a relationship and reuniting.

In addition to improving relationships, sleeping apart also reduces the risk of chronic health problems and may improve motor functions.


5. Sleeping apart can help parenting skills

Refreshing for a relationship and reuniting after sleeping apart can help parenting skills apart from improving romantic relationships. The decision to improve sleep quality by having a sleep separation arrangement can have a positive impact on parents’ ability to respond to their children’s needs, regulate their own emotions, problem-solve and more fully enjoy time spent together as a family.
