LEARNING HOW TO LIE DOWN
What could be more beautiful than a deep and restful sleep? You’d think that there’s hardly anything more natural and straightforward than sleeping, but numerous studies show how difficult more and more people are finding it. Up to 15 percent of all Germans regularly suffer from sleeping disorders. The causes, ranging from permanent sensory overstimulation to reduced sky darkness at night due to light pollution, are certainly many and varied. The unpleasant consequences, on the other hand, are always the same; problems concentrating, headaches and fatigue are common the day after a bad nights sleep. If this goes on for several weeks, it can be extremely stressful because the body never has a chance to recover properly. The result is a feeling of constant stress and increased agitation. It is quite clear that insomnia is not only exhausting but also harmful to one’ s health.
Do you sleep better alone or with a partner?
A significant aspect within the topic of sleep is the question, does one sleep better alone or with a partner? Of course, this question is by no means an issue for everyone. But at least those who are in a stable partnership and live together should ask themselves this question sooner or later. Many couples have a clichéd idea of what constitutes a happy and romantic relationship. For many, sharing a common bed, or at least a shared bedroom is a given.
But what if your bed companion just doesn’t want to settle down, snores, snorts, fidgets or creaks? The crucial issue is, and always will be, different tastes when it comes to ventilation. If a draft sensitive nesh wants to get some rest next to an obsessive fresh air fanatic, the fight for ventilation sovereignty can regularly degenerate into nocturnal wars surrounding the bedroom window.
Women sleep better alone in bed
It is scientifically proven that especially women sleep better alone than with a partner! Research shows that they tend to relax more at night when they sleep separately. The man made disturbances of peace are apparently more annoying; after the age of 60, at least 60 percent of them snore, while among women it’s only 40 percent in this age group.
Between November of 2005 and July of 2006, sleep researchers at the University Clinic for Neurology at the Medical University of Vienna examined the sleep behaviour of a total of ten heterosexual couples. The research team led by behavioural biologist John Dittami found clear gender differences in the influence of environmental stimuli on the internal clock.
According to this, women’s internal clocks react more sensitively to ‘social timers’ such as working hours and appointments than those of men, so setting up separate beds can be very helpful when it comes to getting a better night’s sleep. However, regular climaxes for two should by no means be avoided: “Sex has a positive effect on sleep for both women and men,” says Dittami.
Tojo’s beds, which can be adjusted in just a few simple steps, offers an ideal solution for all sleeping circumstances alone or as a couple.
