So many people struggle to sleep because their partner snores during the night or they are constantly tossing and turning. This can lead to poor sleep for you and a lot of arguments with your partner, so you need to do something about it. If your partner is disrupting your sleep, here’s how you can deal with it.
Replace Your Mattress

If your partner tosses and turns in the night and you can constantly feel the mattress moving around, it’s tough to sleep. But did you know that you could solve that issue with a new mattress? Old spring mattresses transfer motion a lot, so when one person moves, the whole mattress shifts. But memory foam mattresses with multiple foam layers are designed to prevent this motion transfer. Check out these reviews on puffy mattresses to learn more about how foam mattresses could solve your issue. You’ll be surprised how much difference it makes and you should be able to sleep without feeling a thing, even if your partner is rolling around all over the place.
Manage Snoring Symptoms

Dealing with a partner that snores is very difficult and you have two options; you can either treat the cause of the snoring or manage the symptoms. Sometimes, there is a clear cause of snoring and people only do it when they sleep in a certain position or if they have been drinking alcohol. If you can determine a cause, you may be able to stop the snoring. But if you can’t, you will have to find ways to cover up the sound. Earplugs are a great option and many people use a white noise machine to cover the snoring so they can get to sleep.
Listen To Your Body Clock

A lot of couples try to go to bed at the same time, even if that is not what their body naturally wants. People have different circadian rhythms and some people are naturally night owls while others prefer sleeping early. This can cause tension between couples because they want to spend time together in the evenings, but they disagree about when to go to bed. If you try to sleep early because your partner is, you will lay in bed for hours struggling to get to sleep, and that’s not good for you. You will both be a lot happier if you listen to your body clock and go to bed at whatever time feels natural to you.

If you are still struggling to find a good balance and you are disrupting one another’s sleep, you should consider sleeping separately. This might seem unnatural but many couples find that it works for them and it prevents arguments.
