The subtle ways in which we express our feelings are sometimes as simple as the way we choose to sleep. Scientists and behavioral analysts suggest that how a couple chooses to lie down to sleep can reveal a wealth of information about the reality of their relationship. So our nocturnal body language could sometimes anticipate possible future difficulties. Let’s decipher together these sleeping positions in which you will necessarily recognize yourself.
There are no small things in love life, any sign, any gesture is important.
Side by side, but far from each other
This sleeping position, although involving no direct contact other than the hand, suggests a strong relationship and mutual trust. Both partners sleep side by side without touching, leaving enough space to move and find the most comfortable position.
Entwined face to face
This position expresses a strong feeling of camaraderie and complicity between the partners. Moreover, sleeping intertwined bears witness to a mutual feeling of protection and affectionwhich helps to find sleep more easily.
Entwined at bedtime, distant upon waking
It’s okay if the couple who fell asleep hugging wake up separated. It is a normal and involuntary search for the most comfortable position for rest, also symbolizing independence and a sign of good intimacy.
The partner who takes up more space on the bed
In this case, it is crucial to examine the possible toxicity of the relationship. It is common for the partner who takes up more space on the bed to adopt a dominant position in the relationship.
Sleep with your back turned to the other
This position sounds the alarm. Sleeping back to back can indicate some discomfort in the relationship, a situation that needs to be monitored to resolve the issue. However, if the couple intertwines their legs, it may indicate a comfort in the relationship.
The classic spoon
Not much needs to be said about this position. Sleeping “in a teaspoon” is an excellent indicator of a healthy relationship, passion and mutual desire. In addition, skin-to-skin contact may have beneficial health effects.
Face to face without contact
In this case, the couple might want to develop greater intimacy, although both partners are reluctant to take the first step. On the other hand, it can also represent couples who respect each other’s space, an indispensable condition for maintaining a healthy relationship.
Lying on each other’s chest
This position is one of the most common among couples, especially at the beginning of the relationship. She suggests a fiery passionor even a feeling of appeasement after a reconciliation following an argument or a disagreement.
