There are few things more liberating than waking up next to someone you love. The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and there’s not a cloud in the sky (or on your bed). I’ve been sleeping with my husband for 20 years now, and over that time we’ve built a bond through sharing our mattress every night. It’s given us a chance to talk about what happened during our day as we drift off to sleep. It’s also given us an opportunity to cuddle up together under the covers and get better sleep. Research has shown that couples who share their mattresses have better health outcomes and even less stress than those who sleep alone or don’t share their mattress with someone else regularly. In this post, I’ll be explaining why you should always share your mattress with someone—whether it be a partner, spouse, friend or family member!
You’ll Build A Bond

You’ll Be More Productive At Work
According to a study in the Journal of Applied Psychology, people who sleep with their partner are more productive and happier at work. Those who share their bed with someone else also have better relationships and lower stress levels. They’re also less likely to have insomnia or depression (as long as they don’t let themselves get too tired).
The reason for this is that sleeping next to someone can help you regulate your emotions, reduce anxiety, and slow down the production of cortisol (the hormone associated with stress). This means that when you wake up from a good night’s rest, you’ll feel energized rather than groggy or grumpy.
You’ll Develop A Stronger Immune System

There’s a reason why you’re more likely to get sick when you spend the night alone. Lying down on a bed is one of the most vulnerable positions we can be in, and it makes us easy targets for germs and viruses. But there’s something about sharing a space with someone else that makes us feel safe—and what’s even better is that sleeping together will help strengthen your immune system so that you can fight off colds and flus more effectively. In fact, research has shown that couples who share bedrooms have higher levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), which helps protect against allergies, respiratory infections, and stomach bugs.
You’ll Get Better Sleep
The first thing that you’ll notice after a few weeks of sharing your mattress with someone else is that you’re sleeping better. This is because you’ll be waking up less often and feeling more rested in the morning. Not only that, but sharing your bed can help you get in a sleep pattern much faster than sleeping alone ever could.
While it may feel like two people on a shared mattress are getting pushed into each other’s arms by accident, experts say it’s actually safer than having separate beds because there’s no chance of rolling off or falling out of one side (and onto the floor). Also, if one person has an annoying snore or farts loudly at night, they won’t be able to ruin everyone else’s sleep as easily when they’re nested together under one comforter!
So there we have it: sharing mattresses with another human being has some major benefits for both parties involved—whether physical health or emotional comfort levels are top priority for now or later down the road.”
Your Cardio Health Will Improve
Cardio health is one of the most important aspects of your physical health. It can help you avoid heart disease, diabetes and other serious conditions. Sleep is an integral part of cardio health because it allows your body to repair itself from injuries or illnesses that may have occurred throughout the day.
As we’ve already mentioned before, sleeping with someone else can help you sleep better which means a healthier heart. In addition to improved sleep quality, studies have shown that people who share their bed with someone tend to get more exercise during the day than those who sleep alone. So even if you’re not ready for another workout session at night (or early morning), having someone there might just be enough motivation for getting off your butt during daylight hours!
You’ll Be Less Stressed
Sharing a mattress with someone can help you reduce stress. According to the National Sleep Foundation, couples who sleep together have lower levels of cortisol (the hormone responsible for stress), and this may be due to “the use of each other for reassurance in the face of challenges or threats,” as well as because our social interactions before bedtime help us relax.
Sleeping with someone else is also good for your overall health. A study from Ohio State University found that when people slept alone, they experienced an increase in blood pressure; however, when they shared a bed with someone else—even if they were romantic partners—their blood pressure dropped back down again at night. Another study published by The American Medical Association found that co-sleeping reduced maternal depression by half after childbirth!
Finally, sharing a bed can improve your relationship too! If you live alone most nights but share a bed occasionally with your partner or roommate(s), then you’ll be more likely to feel closer to them (and vice versa). However much time everyone spends on their own depends on what kind of relationship structure works best for each person individually; however there’s no reason why this should prevent any one person spending all their time alone if having close relationships isn’t important enough for them – after all it’s not like there aren’t plenty other things going on during our lives!
I’ve been sleeping with someone for 20 years, and here’s why…
We all know that sleeping with someone can be beneficial for your relationship. It helps bond, creates a sense of security, and even improves your health. But why does it work so well?
The answer is simple: sleeping together puts two people on the same sleep schedule. When we have a partner in bed next to us, they breathe out carbon dioxide as we breathe in oxygen through our nostrils or mouth (or both). This exchange of gases allows us to stay asleep longer because our bodies don’t have to wake up just to take another breath—our partners are already doing it for us!
As humans, we’re designed by nature to be social creatures who need each other’s support in order for everyone involved to thrive. This is especially true when it comes down to things like quality rest; after all, what good would getting 8 hours of sleep be if you didn’t have anyone else around who could help make sure those 8 hours were spent peacefully?
So, the next time you find yourself thinking about sleeping alone, think about what it could mean for your health. Sleeping with someone has made me healthier and happier than I have ever been. It’s hard to imagine where I would be without my partner, but life isn’t always easy even if you do choose to share a bed. Both of us have different schedules that can sometimes make it difficult for us to sleep in the same bed at night—he’s a delivery driver who often works until late into the morning, while my job as an accountant has me up early every day. But we’ve found ways around these issues: he stays up later with me on weekends when he works during the day; I hate sleeping alone so much that even though my alarm goes off at 6:00 AM each morning, which means I’ll only get four hours of sleep before work starts at 9:00 AM on weekdays (and three hours on Saturdays), we still make sure we’re in bed together before midnight every night!
