With the current climate causing hot, sticky nights getting off to sleep is tricky business.
And, to make things worse it’s been revealed that women are getting three hours less sleep than me, a new survey has revealed.
Three hours a day equals to a whopping 1,095 hours a year – and it doesn’t take a private detective to find out who is to blame for the lack of snooze.
The survey revealed partners are a large factor behind this, as the survey commissioned by Bensons for Beds have revealed one in four women blame their partner’s snoring from stopping them from going to the land of nod.
Period pains and waking up to look after kids are also to behind women having to wake-up in the night.
The survey, which looked at 2,000 British couples, found one in three women wake up every single night, compared to just two out of ten men.
Half of the women surveyed also said they feel constantly sleep deprived.
The impact of sleep deprivation leaves 73 per cent of women saying they’re at their wits end, while one in three saying they feel depressed.
To make matters worse lack of sleep can also affect your self-esteem, with 21 per cent of those surveyed claiming they feel ugly due to a lack of shut eye.
If your other half happens to be a snorer which keeps you tossing and turning at night there are a few things you can get your partner to do to prevent him from snoring.
The NHS recommends five self-help sleep tips to stop the snoring including maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding alcohol before bed, quit or cut down on smoking, keeping your nose clear or sleeping on your side rather than your back.
There also are a range of stop-snoring devices that you can buy including nasal strips and throat sprays.
But, if these tips and buys don’t work you can speak to your doctor about medical treatments for snoring.
