Nobody’s perfect when it comes to proper sleeping habits and relationships. We get that. But watch out for bizarre sleeping patterns as these might be keeping you from your goals. Don’t let your busy life and modern stresses get in the way of your Love Month celebrations with your partner. You can do it!
Sure, you’ll survive February. However, what’s good is that if you’re half asleep most of the time? You must sleep well to feel good and show your love. Does your neck feel strained and your body tired even with 7 to 8 hours of sleep? Memory foams, which are gaining popularity in the Philippines, can help you with sleeping posture. You can also try adjusting your room temperature between 18 and 25 degrees Celsius, which is considered the ideal level.
This is what your sleep says about you: There’s a lot of room for improvement. Apart from the serious health repercussions of sleep deprivation, be aware that the sleeping positions of couples and their meaning can help you correct your habits. For example, it’s not a good sign if you occupy most of the bed space and give little to your partner. Quick! Turn your sleeping habits around. Save the remaining days of your Love Month and relationship.
So, were the revelations close to how you see your February, too? No worries if the answer goes otherwise since these are just predictions. However, you must know that your sleeping habits tell a lot about you and how any day would go. If you got 3 to 4, then you can look forward to improvements you can do. Nevertheless, have fun this season of love!
