As we commence cozy season, a trend from Scandinavia is gaining traction for people who are in a relationship: the so-called Scandinavian sleep method, which promises way better sleep.
Anyone who shares their bed with another person will be familiar with the issues that can arise. The other person pulls the covers off you at night, sleeps restlessly, snores, or talks in their sleep. There can be various reasons for this, like stress or an unfavorable sleeping environment (for example, if it is too bright).
But it can also simply be because you have the wrong comforter system in a split bed.
What is the Scandinavian sleeping method?
If you want to improve the quality of your sleep in a relationship, you should try the Scandinavian sleep method. It’s a trendy topic that is currently captivating more and more people around the world and it couldn’t be simpler.
The basic concept is that everyone in bed has their own comforter. Yes, that’s right: The trick is that simple. The reason? If everyone has their own comforter while sleeping, they disturb each other less and are less likely to notice, for example, when the other person moves or rolls into their comforter.
Why is it good for your relationship?
If you swap the large, wide comforter for two individual comforters in bed, you should not only be able to sleep better but also improve the health of your relationship. According to science, people who sleep better are more balanced and happier.
The sleeping method from Scandinavia allows each partner their own “room” and “personal space” at night. And if you want to cuddle up closer at night, then you simply slip under your partner’s blanket.
Another advantage? Everyone gets what they want.
The Scandinavian sleep method also has an impact on the quality of our sleep, because each partner gets what they need. After all, we all have different needs when it comes to comforters. One person may like it warm; the other, cool. One needs a light comforter; the next, a heavy one. If you and your partner use two separate comforters for sleeping, each of you can choose the type of comforter you need.
Is this unromantic though?
Separate comforters are bound to make some people frown. “Isn’t that rather bad for the relationship?” they may ask. “Aren’t you distancing yourself?”
