Get ready to snuggle with your partner again
Sleeping together promotes feelings of closeness, safety and security which lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol and raises levels of oxytocin (often referred to as the “love” hormone.) Oxytocin has been shown to ease stress and anxiety and is produced in the same part of the brain that controls the sleep-wake cycle.
Some experts say couples sleeping in the same bed may have a longer life expectancy than people who sleep by themselves. It is also believed that sleeping with a partner may be a key reason people in intimate relationships tend to be in overall better health.
Snoring is a primary reason partners move away from this healthful, happy sleeping arrangement to separate bedrooms. It has strained many a healthy relationship – so many in fact, it has been cited as the 3rd leading cause of couples filing for divorce. You may have heard the saying “Half the world snores, and the other half is mad about it,” – a funny line maybe, but if you’re losing sleep, you’re probably not laughing.
Recent studies indicate that 80% of snoring couples regularly sleep apart and it is no wonder that’s the case. Partners of snorers suffer from what is called SAS, or Spousal Arousal Syndrome; a sleep disturbance which leaves the afflicted partner short an average of two hours of sleep per night because they may be waking up as many as 21 times per hour.
While the road to immediate relief may be just down the hall in another room, the road to recovery from sleep deprivation is a long one; beginning with exhaustion and frustration, and often leading to resentment and loss of emotional intimacy.
It’s important for couples to work together to find a healthy solution to snoring so that both partners are able to get the quality sleep they need; and are able to enjoy the emotional benefits of sleeping in the same bed.
