These common myths could be contributing to your poor sleep without you even realizing it, according to Bel Marra Health.

You need eight hours of sleep

In a perfect world, we would all get eight hours of sleep and feel well rested. But we are all different people with different habits and lifestyles, so eight hours for one person may not work for someone else. As long as you feel awake, energized, and rested, that is the appropriate amount of sleep you need.

Couples should always share a bed

There is a stigma that couples who don’t share a bed have a bad relationship, but why should one person suffer from loud snoring or other disruptive habits? As long as you and your spouse recognize that sleeping separately can actually be quite healthy for your relationship, your sleep will improve.
