Separate beds ‘best for sleep’

Couples have been advised that sharing a bed can see them facing disruption for up to half the time they are trying to sleep

People are not designed to share a mattress, according to one expert, who claimed beds are often not big enough for two individuals.

Dr Neil Stanley told the Daily Mail that research he has conducted has led him to believe that separate beds is the best way for couples to get adequate shut-eye.

He described how sleeping apart appears to be on the increase, as more people admit they are frequently disturbed by their bedroom partner.

“If you take a standard 4ft 6in double bed, then you are allowing each adult less personal space than a child would have in a single bed. It makes no sense,” Dr Stanley stated.

As a result, he noted that for at least 50 per cent of the night, couples will often find they are fighting for the duvet and being awoken by fidgeting.

Lon’s Article Directory recently reported that people who struggle to drift off due to back pain could benefit from a memory foam mattress, which adjusts to the shape of the sleeper.
