Does your partner keep you up all night, hogging the covers, snoring, talking in there sleep? Do you have a sleep deprived hang over the next day trying to figure out how to drag yourself though the day on a enough caffeine that could kill a elephant? Or almost over dose on tylenol so the pounding in your head will just stop? Well, i live those days most days! My advice, my preference, sleep apart! Statistics show up to 40% of married couples sleep alone. No, it is not a sign of relationship issues, to me a healthy relationship does not fall apart because two people do not share the same bed. If anything lack of sleep and cranky husbands or wives or significant others causes relationship woes under these pretenses. Do not let the stigma of not sleeping together determine you relationship. I believe quality sleep is better then quantity!
My personal preference is a quiet, dark room that is cool. My husband likes the tv on at high volumes to drown out sound. We clash and neither gets rest on nights he sleeps next to me. Now, do i enjoy the security of having a big strong man next to me, of course! I never feel safer then when he is lying there next to me, however i am a much happier more productive woman on nights i sleep alone! Now, my husband would chose to be sleep deprived forever because he prefers knowing i am there at any cost, but a little sleep apart does him just as much good too!!
Look at what a lack of sleep can do, lack of sleep causes depression, physical and psychological aliments, decreased immune system, and it is a romance killer to say the least. Think about your sleep this way it regulates hormones, now, think of all the arguments you can have when your hormones are disrupted! I know when i am tired i am argumentative! So here it is for pete sakes get some shut eye however that must be. And honey, i love you but tonight i am sleeping alone! And for now i am over dosing on caffeine, took some tylenol, and with a take it on the chin attitude, i am dragging myself to work, looking forward to that slumber tonight alone!! Hope everyone takes this advice and gets some much needed ZZZZZZ’s!!!! 🙂
