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.
