You've added curtains that block out that annoying street light. You've turned the temperature down in your bedroom. It was tough, but you've stopped surfing the web and scrolling through Instagram hours before bedtime. And you sure as heck aren't drinking caffeine late in the evening. But you're still not sleeping well! This weekend try one of these three things you may not have tried yet.
Keep the pets out of the bedroom
I love a good cat or dog snuggle as much as anyone, but your furry loved ones might be getting in the way of you getting a good night sleep and you not realize it. My cat, for instance, is the cutest thing ever...until he gets up and moves around and meows when he's bored about 10 times a night. I had to long ago banish him from my bedroom (but don't worry we take frequent sofa naps) so that I could sleep more soundly the whole night through. Your pets might be getting in the way of your best sleep by taking up too much of the bed, overheating you, snoring or any number of scenarios. It might be worth an experiment of trying to sleep without them for a week or two to see if it makes a difference.
