  • Make Sharing a Bed More Comfortable With the Best Silk Sheets

    best-silk-sheetsLet’s face it – sharing a bed with your partner isn’t always the most comfortable scenario, especially when you are looking forward to getting a really good nights’ sleep. In addition to the sleep habits your partner has (such as snoring, kicking, or talking in their sleep!), it can be difficult to find to a compromise when it comes to the type of bedding you use. Perhaps one of you prefers to sleep cocooned in multiple blankets, while the other prefers to sleep without covers at all. Maybe one of you always wakes up in the middle of the night sweating, while the other complains of chills all night long.

    Whatever the case, not getting enough sleep will leave you tired all the time. But if that’s not enough to set off alarms, look for these other signs…

    2. You’re short-tempered, or otherwise moody.

    Maybe you’re the type that doesn’t feel tired or sickly or weak when you’re short on sleep…but how’s your mood? If you’re not getting enough sleep at night, you’re going to eventually push yourself into a ‘survival mode’ where the wrong chemicals start flowing and fight-or-flight becomes far more appealing as a solution in life. That means a short temper…or depression, anxiety, and a wealth of other mood problems. Continue Reading
