If you or your partner wakes up tired and grumpy, you may need to make a few changes to your sleep environment and bedtime routine.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests:
- If you snore, turn on your side to sleep. If that doesn’t help, consult your doctor and discuss conditions such as sleep apnea.
- Invest in a new mattress that helps prevent one side of the bed from moving if the other person moves around at night. Look for a mattress that has individual pocket coils or is made of memory foam.
- Keep your bedroom tidy. You should each spend a few minutes picking up before bed.
- No work, computers or phones allowed in the bedroom.
