Different schedules, temperature preferences, snoring, tossing & turning and so many other factors can make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep next to someone else. Try some of these tips before you find yourself with a subscription to Ambien or sleeping in separate beds!

1. Have you found yourself staring at the ceiling at 2AM because your partner is snoring? As over half of the population is guilty of snoring, chances are that you’ve been there before. As long as it’s not a “so loud you wake yourself up” snore, try to drown it out with a sound machine or white noise app on your smartphone – there are literally hundreds of them. Sleep soundly to ocean waves or the rainforest instead of the not-so-soothing sound of someone snoring.

2. It takes nothing more than a turn to the side to wake up a sensitive sleeper. Health Magazine talked to Dr. Breus about combatting tossing, turning and even kicking and the sleep expert suggested layering yourself in separate blankets to cut down on motion. If you partner is surrounded by their own blankets, less chance for that karate kick to reach you!

3. Snoring is the most common problem so here’s another tip for that issue. Stop drinking alcohol before you go to bed! I know, I know. No one wants to hear that, but booze is a major trigger for sawing logs so make sure you (or your partner) don’t drink for at least an hour before you go to bed.

4. Do you wake up shivering because your sheets have “magically” disappeared? Stop playing tug-of-war with your sheet hogging partner and just get separate blankets! You can share a layer or two but make sure you always have your own should they decide to burrito up!

5. Get our favorite new mattress, Ideal Temp™ from Sealy. It’s designed to deliver cooled or heated air for a temperature-controlled sleep. Get this – each side can adjust their own temp! It’s a life saver, or at least a relationship saver, for couples with different temperature preferences.
