Individual sleep routine in a relationship

I often read that going to sleep not too late is a good way to get enough sleep. I usually do not have problems with that if I am alone. The situation is not that simple when you are sharing a bed/life with someone else.

When you are alone you just have to consciously decide to go to sleep, and say ‘No’ to the Internet, Netflix or anything else that will keep you awake.

Once you have a partner you also need to consider the preference of that other person. Maybe you want to read before the sleep but your partner likes to watch a series. Or, you want the lights out by 11PM while he/she will prefer midnight.

Different needs will influence your sleep routine. Apart from communication with your partner, there is definitely some good products out there to support your preference and I will be posting them with tag ‘individual‘.
