Never feel like you get a good night’s sleep?
You’re not alone.
A big new sleep study identified what causes your restlessness at night and how to get a better night’s sleep, according to Courier Mail.
Here are things that cause you to LOSE sleep from the ReDormin Sleep Study:
Being in an alert mood when you go to bed causes you to sleep 46 minutes LESS
Having a partner who snores costs you 14 minutes
Having your cell phone charging next to the bed costs you 11 minutes
Watching a movie right before bed costs 10 minutes
Having a fan running costs you nine minutes of sleep
Now these are the five things that help you sleep LONGER:
Doing YOGA before bed adds 64 minutes of sleep time and also improves the QUALITY of your sleep more than anything else
Having a small child in bed adds 24 minutes…however it’s also the thing that hurts the QUALITY of your sleep more than anything else, so you sleep longer, but not as well
Being in a calm mood before going to bed adds 24 minutes
Having an adult partner in bed with you adds 21 minutes
Having SEX before bed adds the same amount as taking a HOT SHOWER before bed…about six minutes.
Which one would YOU prefer for a good night’s rest? 😉
