Tips for couples who share a bed together

10.09.2018

Love and sleep are basic human needs. If you share your bed with your mate, you get the love, but perhaps not enough of sleep. Here are some specific situations and solutions, how to synchronize and remove insomnia from your vocabulary.

Snoring.

According to statistics, millions of adult people snore, and your partner is probably one of them. And snoring worsens with age. If this is some kind of comfort, snoring is not good for the one who snores as well. In many cases snoring is due to sleeping on the back; the old pushing method should yield results. Another solution is using ear plugs. Either way, sleep deprivation is a serious problem and snorers affect both of you.

Posture during sleep.

Sorry, sweethearts, cuddling, and sleeping are not the same thing. When it comes to sleep, some people have to be independent. In fact, most people need a little personal space to get into sleep mode. Try to reduce the cuddling time before bedtime and fall asleep in your own positions as soon as possible to achieve optimal sleep.

The fight for the blanket.

It is stressful to sleep with someone who constantly steals the sheets from you. Use separate blankets under the quilt. This will solve the "too hot" or "too cold" fight for each of you. It will also block the one who pulls the sheets harder. Strengthen your individuality by uniting and supporting your relationship.

Invest in quality bedding set and pillows.

When your sheets are stiff, irritating to the skin or worn out, you are much more likely to feel uncomfortable. Pillows can play a huge role in the quality of sleep that you and your partner receive; studies show that a well-balanced and stable pillow keeps your neck and back in the right position. In this line of thought, try the Adry Cool pillow for a pleasant experience with a cooling effect during sleep.

The ideal temperature.

Experts recommend a maximum of 20 degrees, but they are not in bed with you. Some solutions you should consider: a compromise on the temperature range (somewhere in the middle is fair) or dress up according to your partner's preferences (for example, thicker / lighter pajamas). Also, you better get a quality mattress - TED #puresenseofbeing offers Adry Cool mattress with cooling foam to reduce body temperature.

Mattress with motion isolation.

Restless sleep will make you feel like you're trying to relax in a stormy ocean. Good luck with this. Everyone rotates from left to right from time to time, but people with restless legs who sleep deep and turn very aggressively are not a joke. Try separate blankets to help you create two separate sleeping areas. Also, put on a quality memory foam mattress to reduce and locate the movement of the mattress.

Buy a bigger bed.

Many people are tempted by a large bed. Also, in many cases, the beloved one who will move to live with you will have to share the bed that is already there, which is often a small one. Big mattresses are much more suitable for couples, so think about it.

A place for the bed.

It's not good to put your bed in the corner. Make sure you've positioned your bed so that you can climb on it from all three sides. Of course, this is not always possible, especially if you have a small apartment or a bed. If possible, place the furniture in the room so that the bed is not against the wall. If you sleep lighter than your partner or you often need to go to the toilet at night, choose the outer side. What you will avoid: climbing on your partner in the middle of the night, which is not as fun as when you are both awake.

Different bedtimes.

In the real world, people often have a different work schedule than their partner, or one is a night owl and the other is an early bird. Discuss it with each other - maybe you should go to bed at different times, which means: when each of you is tired.

Technology and sleep.

Your partner may need to be lulled by a night TV show, podcast, or music. Use a timer (15 minutes is enough). You can also try a sleep mask, white noise, or earplugs, of course. Keep in mind that earplugs are good for silencing the sound, but they do not block everything, so do not expect a lot of them. When the alarm goes off, you'll probably hear it.

Sleeping in complete darkness.

If you are the type of person who prefers to be dark when they fall asleep, then you do it very well. Experts say that darkness gives a signal to your brain to produce the hormone melatonin that puts the mind and body in sleep mode. Your partner may be accustomed to falling asleep when the light is on. Solution: a very low power lamp, which does not get into your eyes
