Waking up feeling well rested and ready to take on the world is something most of you look forward to. Unfortunately, you often fail to have a good nights sleep and end up with a headache as well as general listlessness. A disturbed sleep pattern often leads to serious consequences that affect your body and mind too. It is important that you get to sleep soundly for at least 7-8 hours a day advise the doctors. You are no doubt trying your best to do so.

What about the man /woman in your life who shares your bed at night though? According to Wendy Troxel, a clinical psychologist and scientist, poor sleep patterns tend to affect the partners who share the marital bed as well as the individual concerned. She clarifies her stand by saying, Research by me and my colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh found that for men, poor sleep predicts more negative interactions with his partner the next day. For women, the converse was true: How she interacts with her partner during the day predicts how soundly she sleeps at night. In other words, for women, marital strife can lead to a sleepless night for men, a sleepless night can lead to marital strife. Taken together, these interactions can create a vicious cycle, potentially increasingly poor sleep and distressed relationships.

In other words your relationship with your partner is also an important factor for proper sleep. You might as well sleep alone, if you are going to keep quarreling with your spouse late into the night.
