How to Master the Viral Scandinavian Sleep Method

Double Chevron Left Back to Wellness

If you’re tired of constantly fighting over the covers at night, then Polysleep has the perfect solution for you. The Scandinavian sleep method is the answer you and your partner are longing for.

What is the Scandinavian sleep method?

The Scandinavian sleep method is when a couple shares a bed, but each has their own individual blanket or duvet. This method has gone viral on social media platforms like TikTok, garnering millions of online views. It’s a popular sleeping style in the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Why should you give this sleep method a try?

Say goodbye to restless nights and blanket hogging – and say hello to freedom and great quality sleep! Couples rarely share the same sleep habits and this popular sleep method allows you to customize your own sleep preferences. You’ll also minimize sleep disturbances like fighting over the blankets, enduring your partners’ incessant tossing and turning at night and having different body temperatures. The Scandinavian sleep method is also a great option if you go to bed at different times and want to avoid waking up your partner.

Another alternative to sleep divorce

The Scandinavian sleep method can also be used as an alternative to sleep divorce, or sleeping separately from your partner. Studies have shown that sleep divorce is beneficial for some adults with sleep disturbances who averaged 37 minutes of sleep more each night when they slept separately than when they shared a bed.

On the other hand, bed sharing with a loved one can release the love hormone oxytocin, which is linked to lower stress levels, improved emotional regulation and better well-being. With this in mind, couples with sleep disturbances who prefer to sleep in the same bed and still want the benefits of a good night’s sleep could give the Scandinavian sleep method a try.

How can you get started?

If you’re ready to go all in on the Scandanavian sleep method, then there’s really only one thing you need to do: Ditch the top cover of your bed and sleep under your own single-size duvet, blanket or comforter!

How do you know which duvet is right for you?

The key to choosing the right duvet is that it meets your own specific needs and preferences. Temperature needs vary during sleep and are often not in sync with your partner, but this method provides each person the freedom over their temperature while sleeping.

For example, if you’re someone who is cold at night, then you’ll want to opt for a single-size thick, heavy duvet that you can fully wrap yourself in. On the other hand, if you’re hot at night, then you’ll want to choose a lighter, thinner single-size blanket or duvet with less fill and leave parts of your body uncovered for better airflow.

Polysleep Pro Tip

You should wash your individual duvets regularly as it accumulates dust, skin cells, sweat, and dust mites. A good rule of thumb would be to wash it every 3-4 months if you use the same duvet year-round or more frequently if you suffer from allergies, are ill, are sweaty at night, or sleep with your pet.

What is the downside to the Scandinavian sleep method?

One of the issues that you may run into with the Scandinavian sleep method is that it will make it more difficult to cuddle your partner at night. That’s because it limits sleep positions like spooning. A simple solution to this is cuddling before bedtime and then moving under your own duvet when you’re ready to sleep.

This popular sleep method also doesn’t eliminate disruptions from sleep disorders such as sleep talking, restless leg syndrome or snoring since you are still in close proximity with your partner.

Should I opt for a larger bed?

You may discover that it’s easier to benefit from the Scandinavian sleep method by investing in a larger bed. That way, you have more space to move around and have more room for your individual duvets, blankets or comforters.

Polysleep’s Takeaway

The Scandinavian sleep method is worth a try, especially if you are a certified blanket hogger, have different temperature needs or go to bed at different times than your partner. After all, both you and your partner deserve a great night’s sleep!
