Health Tip: Adjusting to Life With a Roommate
(HealthDay News) -- Sharing a room with a partner or roommate often requires adjustments on your part.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests:
If the room is noisy, wear earplugs, or use ear buds to listen to some soothing music.
Wear a sleep mask to block out light.
Prepare for the fact that you're likely to be uncomfortable at times, and do your best to adjust. Acceptance helps minimize frustration and anxiety about a new sleep situation.
Keep the same sleep schedule, even on weekends. Avoid electronics, nicotine and caffeine at least four hours before bed.
