The position in which the couple sleeps shows how the relationship is

(Relaxnews) - Sleeping face to face, back to back, or without physical contact are good indicators of how the relationship is going, according to a study presented at the Edinburgh International Science Festival, which is currently taking place up to 20. Of april.

Did you know that 94% of couples who are physically close in bed at night claim to be happy? It is what was highlighted in this study, the first to be interested in the link between sleep positions and the degree of satisfaction of the couple.

The research was conducted by Professor Richard Wiseman, a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire with 1, 000 couples. She revealed that 42% sleep with their backs to each other, 31% turn in the same direction, while 4% face each other during sleep. Those who maintained some form of physical contact at night claimed to be happy - this is the case with 94% of them. Among those who kept some distance in bed, only 68% said they were happy.

On the other hand, among those who slept less than 2 cm from their partners, 86% belong to the category of marital happiness. Of those who were more than 70 cm apart, 66% said they were in the same state of grace.

Physical distance during sleep could then be a reflection of emotional intimacy, according to the study's findings. The survey was also interested in sleeper personality traits and revealed that most extroverts slept facing their partner. Creatives preferred to turn to the left side of the bed.
