1. Respect your partners sleeping needs.
According to research, men and women have different biological thermostats. It's important to recognize that you have different sleeping temperature preferences.
2. Discuss the bedroom temperature.
Rather than avoiding the topic, have an open discussion about how you truly feel about the bedroom temperature / sleeping environment. More often than not, women are cold and men are hot.
3. Cuddle (guys don't cringe).
According to sleep specialists at the University of Michigan, couples spend roughly 1/3 of their life sleeping together. "Spooning" (or cuddling) at night will provide emotional intimacy and has been proven to create a stronger bond between the two of you.
4. Embrace sleep "technology".
Consider investing in a sleeping mask, noise machine, black-out curtains, mouth guards, etc. These small investments can have a meaningful impact. `
5. Have fun sleeping together.
Sleeping together can be fun. Be playful with each other at night. Being playful will promote intimacy and provide you with a calmer sleep environment.
