Tell the truth—do you and your significant other share a bedroom but not a bed? Well, if you answered yes, then you’re in good company. Research from Ryerson University in Toronto estimates that between 30 to 40 percent of couples sleep in separate rooms at night. According to Colleen Carney, the director of the Sleep and Depression Lab at Ryerson, even though people say they sleep better when their bed partner is next to them, brain monitoring proves the opposite to be true. When test subjects slept together, monitors show that their brain did not enter the deeper stages of sleep, because it was repeatedly awakened.
