Sleep is something we can all relate to as we need sleep in order to function properly throughout the day. Many of us have specific habits when preparing for bed, and sometimes these habits can be interrupted by our surroundings which may disrupt our sleeping pattern. This can leave us feeling groggy in the morning.
We surveyed 1000 UK adults and broken down our findings to look specifically at the differences between men and women when it comes to their sleeping habits. How many of you have had arguments with your partner about having the television on in the bedroom?
Men and women’s sleeping habits are fairly different , but one thing they do agree on is the preferred sleeping position.
Although you may feel like your daily routine before bed is helping you sleep, it might actually be hindering your ability to get a proper nights sleep. Studies have shown that watching television, or surfing the web on your laptop/phone can impede your bodies ability to fall asleep. The bright light from these screens can interfere with the production of melatonin, the hormone that forms part of the system that regulates our sleep-wake patterns.
