Surprisingly, 1 In 4 Couples Does This In The Bedroom

It’s not what you think.

Humans have slept in social groups from the beginning of our ancestral past, particularly for warmth and safety from predators. Today, however, 1 in 4 couples sleeps alone, for all kinds of reasons, from noisy snoring, to different sleeping climates, to blanket hogging.

When we sleep alone today, however, we aren’t worried about physical predators, we’re concerned with social ones. We associate sleeping together with being happy together, though snagging healthy sleep is an important factor in building a healthy relationship.

Check out the video above, created in partnership with Sleep Number, to learn more about the correlation between healthy sleep and healthy relationships.
