Revealed: British Couples’ Bedtime Habits
When it comes to bedtime, do you long for a steamy night of passion or is a decent sleep a little more tempting? If the second option sounds more dreamy, you’re not alone. In fact, our recent survey about life between the sheets for British couples reveals that a massive 78% think a good night’s sleep is more valuable than a night of romance. Here’s more of what we uncovered…
There are many potential dilemmas when it comes to sharing your bed. Your partner might be one of the 50% who love to spoon, while you’re in the 20% who’d really rather not. Then there’s the on-going room temperature battle – you want the window open, your partner wants it shut. Both issues pose a serious threat to your sleep compatibility, leaving one or both of you exhausted (not to mention irritated) the next day.
Luckily though, it seems from our survey results that your loved one’s sleep habits are often more a source of hilarity than stress. Speaking nonsense was the most common night-time behaviour, but our research also unearthed some less conventional, more noteworthy stories; thumb sucking, wandering off to win the world cup and driving a car all made appearances.
Whether or not your other half’s bedroom antics are more funny than they are frustrating, an interrupted slumber is far from ideal. The solution? Restore some bedtime harmony and address that snoring problem, introduce some exercise into your routine, or change up your diet.
Don’t forget, with ‘a night of passion’ high in the ranks too, helping your partner get better sleep could be more worth it than you think – who said you can’t have the best of both worlds?
