If you wake up feeling groggy and cranky and you’ve tried all the methods known to man to improve the quality of your sleep, the problem may be lying right next to you! You and your partner may be sleep incompatible. Maybe one is a night owl, while the other is an early bird. Maybe your partner snores so loud you have nightmares of being attacked by drills and saws. The temperature of the room is another key factor to a good night’s sleep. Maybe your partner likes to sleep in a sauna while you like to be in Iceland.
It’s known as a sleep divorce and although it sounds so negative, it could be the best thing for your relationship. Poor sleep can make you irritable and grumpy with your partner. Tell your partner that you love them but maybe 2 or 3 nights a week you should sleep in separate beds. There’s nothing wrong with this, after all, you’re not headed to a friend’s house, you’re just headed to a different room or even the couch.
Enjoy a good cozy night’s sleep snuggled with just yourself! – Maryann Morgan – Joel & Maryann in the Morning
