When What Happens In The Bedroom Doesn't Stay In The Bedroom


Despite what you’re thinking after reading that title, this post is about sleep. Or, more precisely, our lack of it. Nothing’s worse than not being able to doze off when the rest of the world is silent around you. It’s a horrible and frustrating experience which can make bedtimes a chore rather than something to look forward to. To make matters worse, issues like these don’t stay in the bedroom. Your troubles here will follow you through every aspect of your life. To prove just how far they reach, we’re going to look at a few of the main areas this night-time struggle can spill into.







Life on the road 

The chances are that you hop in your car first thing each day. But, roads are dangerous places. If you were wide awake and in an accident through no fault of your own, you could get help from a personal injury lawyer. If you crash because you fall asleep at the wheel, however, you’ll soon find yourself on the wrong side of that process. Driving when even a little drowsy is terrible news, let alone after a night of tossing and turning. Your day in the office A lack of sleep can also seep into your working life. Feeling perpetually tired during your days could have an enormous impact on your mental wellness. That could impact your work performance. When your mental functioning isn’t up to scratch, you’ll find it difficult to do anything to the best of your ability. Ideas will be hard to come by. Even managing your time and tasks will become a struggle on a daily basis. All because you didn’t sleep the night before. Your relationship status Sleep isn’t the only thing which won’t be happening in the bedroom if you don’t get on top of this. Many sleep specialists report a decreased libido in patients with sleep deprivation. Let’s be frank; no one wants to get down to it when they’re exhausted both physically and mentally. Your sleep struggle may also lead to arguments. It’ll leave you operating on a short fuse during interactions with your partner. If you aren’t careful, you’ll end up snapping at everything they say to. Sadly I learned this the hard way.

So, what can you do? Don’t worry; we aren’t leading you up the sleepless creek without a pillow. Now you know how much impact your sleeplessness can have, the chances are that you want to tackle it once and for all. The first thing to note is that extreme issues here may require medical help.

On a general level, though, there are things you can do to make a difference. For one, restricting caffeine intake to your mornings could make a difference or change to decaf. It’s also worth developing a bedtime routine which doesn’t involve screens or anything visually stimulating. 

Your best bet may to turn off your phone before bed, and spend the last hour of your evenings reading. The butterfly effect of efforts like these is sure to see you sleeping soundly in no time. Hard advice to really take note of because most of us do our best thinking just before bed. Truth is try to cut back and focus more on connecting with family just before bed if not reading a book. Laugh, talk, play, whatever distracts you best from your phone.
