This article shows how sleeping positions will spice up your love. Are you the type of person who likes to cuddle with your partner on bed? or want to wake on the other side of the bed, back to back?

Recent research shows that the position in which we sleep is highly shows about the durability of our relationships.  1,000 people were taken into this research.

Partners who sleep less than an inch close are far more likely to be happy than ones with a gap wider than 30 inches, as researchers found. The most happiest couples: Couples who sleep face to face while cuddling were found to be 100% in their relationships.Results: partners who sleep while touching each other seems to be more happier than those who don’t.


And couples who sleeps while making physical contact are much happier than those who do not. A research which was published  at the Edinburgh international science festival by psychiatrist Samuel Dunkell.

psy.samuel dunkell Found that people who sleep curled up in the “full foetal” position are expected to be hesitating, anxious and sensitive to criticism. Those who  sleep lie in “semi foetal”  , with their knees up, are quiet, conformable to compromise, and  unexpected to take extreme stances, he said.

People who nap in the royal position-flat on their back-tend to be convincedt, exposed, rich, and passion-seeking. And those who makes ‘prone’ on their face show a addiction for grimness and perfectionism.

He study found that 42 % of couples  sleeps back to back, 31 % face the same way and just 4 % face one another.

Around 34 % sleep physically touching and 12 % spend the night less than an inch apart, and 2 % are separated by more than 30 inches.

Of those who fall asleep touching, couples attend to be happier if they are face-to-face than if they ‘spoon’ their partners, facing the same direction, or if they face in opposite directions.

Of those who do not touch, the most number of happy couples face the same direction – above those who sleep back to back or facing one a another.

Professor Richard Wiseman,University of Hertfordshire  psychologist , who led the study, told: ‘94% of couples who spent the night in touching with one another were happy with their relationship, compared to just 68 % of those that didn’t keep physical touch.

‘This is the first survey to examine couples’ sleeping positions, and the results allow people to gain an insight into someone’s personality and relationship.’

The study found 86 %of couples who slept less than an inch apart felt happy in their relationship, compared along with 66 % of those who lie more than 30″ apart.

The newest results are part of Professor Wiseman’s overall research on sleep and dreaming. He is using Dr Dunkell’s ideas to study the ways people relate to one a another in their sleep.

His initial findings suggest that people who sleep very close to their partners are more expected to be extroverts.Professor Wiseman said: ‘34%of people said they lied touching, but this rose to 45%among extroverts.

So as you can see staying close to your partner even in sleeping makes a strong bond/relationship among each other.
