The much-anticipated royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19 falls right in the middle of Better Sleep Month. The whole world will be watching these two lovebirds tie the knot, but what we won’t see is what happens behind closed doors. While every couple longs for wedded bliss, sometimes differing bedtime habits and behaviors can lead to disagreements and sleeplessness down the line, from disputes about who tends to snore to who hogs the covers (I suspect even royalty have a few bad sleep habits).
Based on statistics, there will most likely be debate between the two as to whether the window should be open or closed at night, if the down duvet should remain on or off the bed, and whether a night light should be used. According to the Better Sleep Council, one in three Americans reports that their bed partner has a negative impact on their own sleep, because these are the kind of issues that affect getting quality zzz’s.
While I anxiously await the royal wedding, one question I’ll certainly be asking is, “Am I better in bed than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?” Based on my sleep knowledge and current sleep habits, I’m willing to bet that I am!
Since Better Sleep Month is a perfect opportunity to improve your bedtime performance and sleep behaviors, the Better Sleep Council has a few suggestions that you and I could apply to our own sleeping arrangements – and even the royal couple’s.
Will I be better in bed than Harry and Meghan? Who knows. But I will say “I do” to a healthier sleep routine.
