Sleeping Alone Ensures Good Night Sleep
A team of researchers from the Central Queensland University has found that in order to get a good night sleep a person must sleep alone. They came to this conclusion after surveying over 13,000 people during the Sealy Sleep Census. During their study, they found that sleeping with a partner can disrupt the sleep either due to voices or even movements of the other person.
Out of the total people surveyed, nearly two-third of people had woken up during the night. Out of them, 35% were woken by the sound of their partnerâ€™s snoring, going to the bathroom, answering calls or even checking emails during the night. There were also 13% people who had their night sleep disturbed by noise of traffic and 16% woke up due to rain.
A good night sleep is very important and if someone is woken up during the night, it hinders their next dayâ€™s work which was also evident in the study as nearly 33% of respondents had pulled a sickie because they were tired due to improper sleep. Moreover, people are not able to fully commit to their work as 38% of people that were surveyed admitted that they fell asleep at their desk after not getting a good night sleep.
