Despite the fact that in the last few years psychologists and sexologists have taught many people to think about what just sleep in separate beds may save the couple from divorce and has a beneficial effect on their health, far from it.
To such conclusion scientists from the USA, the results of the research which publishes the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry.
In experiment took part about a dozen young and healthy heterosexual couples, which is being watched in the sleep lab. All were connected to special monitors that secures the quality of sleep and its depth.
In the result, it was found that to improve the quality of sleep partners or spouses have to sleep not just in bed, but in an embrace. In this case, improves the quality of REM sleep during which people dream about dreaming.
This phase is critical to the process of consolidation of memories, regulate emotions and solve various problems. Partners who slept in an embrace, REM sleep was more consistent and long, than at night the rest alone.
Also observations have shown that such couples have synchronized pattern of sleep, and this is one of the clearest signs of the depth and degree of satisfaction from the relationship. It turned out that the stronger was the degree of synchronization of sleep partners, the higher they valued the significance of the relationship for themselves.
However, the study authors indicate that do not aim to convince those who believe that sleeping in separate beds fewer people awaken each other when tossing and turning and kicking feet. Each theory may have its supporters, sure they are.
Earlier, the “FACTS”, wrote that the company Ford has developed a prototype smart beds, which will not allow the man to take another half in a dream. The bed consists of a frame located inside a mattress — it is fixed on a small conveyor belt with integrated pressure sensors. Bed automatically divides the space into two halves — each of them belongs to different partners. When one of them in the dream moves on another half, the tape will move the mattresses so that people were back in their places.
