Woman tries Scandinavian sleep method and says it could ‘save marriages’

A woman on social media who tried the Scandinavian sleep method has hailed it as a possible marriage saver.

The Northern part of Europe is often renowned for its spectacular Northern Lights, ready-to-assemble furniture, beautifully crafted pop music and for having some of the happiest countries in the world.

They’ve also apparently mastered the best way to snooze and quite frankly, are we really surprised? Of course they have!

So, what is the Scandinavian sleep method, you ask?

It basically all revolves around blankets and as many people will already know, having to share a bed with someone who hogs the covers is never ideal. But thankfully there’s a solution.

The practice was popularized in Denmark, Norway and Sweden and instead of using one big blanket, couples use two twin blankets.

Social media influencer Erica Stolman Dowdy (@ericastolmandowdy) shared a video on the Scandinavian sleep method, which she dubbed an ‘absolute game changer’, and gained over 3.3 million views.

In the video we see her strip what appears to be a king-size mattress before making her bed with new sheets, with each half having its own duvet for a single person.

Each person in the bed gets their own duvet - also known as comforters, which means there are no complaints if one person is too hot and the other is too cold, you won’t wake up chilly only to find that your bed bestie has stolen the covers and you can be super comfortable, too.

“The Scandinavian sleep method is an absolute game changer. 10/10 recommend,” Dowdy’s video caption reads.

In the short clip, she recalls her recent trip to Copenhagen, Denmark along with her husband where she became privy to the sleep method and decided to try it herself once they arrived home in the States.

Dowdy also chose ‘fun colours’ for her bedroom decor, which more of an aesthetic choice than another step to catching z’s.

People in the comments are obsessed with the Scandinavian sleep method, which has already become immensely popular outside of Northern Europe. One woman shared: “My husband is from Germany and we’ve always done this, my favourite way to make the bed is to fold each twin and turn it sideways. Fits perfect.”

“Once you sleep with two comforters… you will NEVER go back to only one!!!” another woman commented.

“Not me realising I sleep with the Copenhagen method already and my husband and I LOVE it,” someone else wrote. Don’t you just love being accidentally on trend?!

“We do this I didn’t know it had a name!” a TikTok user confessed. “I’ll never go back it’s the only way that makes sense.”
