In the perfect world, sharing a bed with that special someone would gift better sleep than sleeping alone. In truth, while cuddling, snuggling and pillow talk have their benefits, a shared sleep environment can have its fair share of pitfalls as well. Since sleep impacts all aspects our lives, the quality and quantity of shut-eye we get can make for cranky coupling if you and your mate have different sleep habits. Take a look through our better bedtime tips for finding the right balance of sleep comfort with your cutie:

PROBLEM: Snoring
If your partner’s snoring has you contemplating separate sleep environments, it’s time to take action. While there are all kinds of snore-reducing gadgets and gismos out there, the solution may be easier (and cheaper) than you thought.

SOLUTION: The Right Pillow
A pillow that provides proper support can make a world of difference in the bedtime battle for silence. The patented three-piece construction of our PureCare One Pillows is specifically designed to work in harmony with the body’s natural curvature. The unique build includes Silhouette Supports that cradle the neck and shoulders while the plush Soul Center provides the perfect head rest.  

PROBLEM: Temperature
You want to snuggle, but your partner is a furnace. We get it. One thing is certain – trapped body heat makes for an uncomfortably hot sleep environment.

SOLUTION: Cooling Sleep Essentials
First off, whether we snuggle or not, we sweat at night. The average adult loses up to a liter of fluids every night through perspiration, drool…you get the picture. So if you aren’t using mattress and pillow protectors, you’re sleep environment isn’t as healthy as it could be.

Secondly, today’s advancements provide solutions for better health and increased comfort. Take into consideration PureCare’s FRÍO® mattress and pillow protectors. Cool to the touch, clinically tested FRÍO protectors are not only moisture (dust mite, allergen, mold & mildew) proof, but they are designed with FRÍO rapid chill cooling fibers, a technical textile that helps tunnel heat away from the body. Our FRÍO fibers work to keep heat from accumulating in the body, providing an oh-so-comfy and amicable abode.
 

PROBLEM: Digital differences
Your partner’s idea of drifting off includes a Netflix marathon, but the distractions of blue light are keeping you awake. This isn’t working, right? 

SOLUTION: Eye Mask
Before you write off this suggestion because you “just can’t get used to sleeping with an eye mask on”, give this solution some serious consideration. PureCare’s Dream Composer Sleep Shade features light-eclipse construction, a unique build that blocks light by fitting comfortably around your eyes while not touching your eyelids or lashes. As an added bonus, the Sleep Shade offers an optional soothing gel mask infused with the benefits of Aromatherapy to help you relax your way to sleep.  
 

PROBLEM: Tossing and Turning
You share your sleep environment with a restless sleeper, and the nightly tossing and turning is disruptive…to say the least.

SOLUTION: Aromatherapy
A time-honored solution for restless sleepers, Aromatherapy helps with relaxation and stress relief throughout the night. PureCare’s Aromatherapy mattress and pillow protectors feature optional natural lavender sachets that gently infuse the benefits of Aromatherapy into the sleep environment.  Breathe, Relax, Sleep. 

Couples rejoice! Sharing your sleep environment doesn’t have to be a battle.   Snuggle up, sleep better, and live well.
