According To This Study The Secret To Improving Your Relationship Is Something We Can All Get Behind
When it comes to living happily ever after what you do in the bedroom is important. The more you do it, the better it is, and the more you enjoy it the happier you'll be according to a new study. And no, we're not talking about sex.
Sleep is the ideal way to improve your relationship, according to the new study from The Journal Of Family Psychology. Yes, you read that right. Lying down, getting comfy, and doing nothing is the ideal way to improve your relationship.
The researchers selected dozens of heterosexual newlywed couples from Ohio and asked them about how much sleep they got the night before, then they asked them to rank their satisfaction with various aspects of their relationships. And the surveys proved that the more sleep you get, the happier you'll be as a couple. Easy peasy.
Sex, affection and conflict resolution were all areas that were improved simply by getting more than the average amount of sleep so there's really no downsides.
In particular, men who slept for longer tended to feel less wound up by petty grievances and minor annoyances, so if your boyfriend is always getting snappy with you send him straight to bed, ladies!
Considering lack of sleep makes us cranky, irritable, and reduces our problem solving capacity it's not hard to see why getting a good night's kip would do wonders for a relationship!
So turn your phone off, switch that TV screen off, get off the internet and get back to bed if you want to have the ideal relationship!
