Finding relationship refuge with a good night’s sleep

(ARA) – The hectic pace of day-to-day life shows few signs of slowing; however, the peaceful sanctuary couples are seeking may be closer than they think – in their own bedrooms.

For many of today’s couples though, the terms “bedroom” and “peaceful sanctuary” are more an oxymoron than a reality. A recent survey from the National Sleep Foundation found 25 to 33 percent of couples feel their relationships are negatively impacted by their partner’s bad sleep habits, and Tempur-Pedic’s 2009 Wellness Survey supports this notion, finding 61 percent of adults admit they wish the bedroom was a place where they could relax.

First and foremost, couples need to set the mood for a good night’s sleep by creating a relaxing, “conflict free” sleeping environment.

Secondly, some couples need to find a way to deal with common sleep distractions, including regular movement from one’s partner during sleep. Investing in mattresses that minimize motion transfer, like those in Tempur-Pedic’s line of Swedish Sleep Systems, allow couples to be close without disturbing each other when moving.
