We all know that getting good sleep is important, but a recent study has found that ditching your partner might be key in a good nights sleep!
The study of almost 1000 people found that people who slept with dogs had a much better than sleep than those who slept with their partners.
"People in many parts of the world commonly share their beds not only with human partners but also with dogs and cats." the study said
"Fifty-five percent of participants shared their bed with at least one dog and 31% with at least one cat. In addition, 57% of participants shared their bed with a human partner."
"Dog owners had earlier bedtimes and wake times than individuals who had cats but no dogs. Compared with human bed partners, dogs who slept in the owner’s bed were perceived to disturb sleep less and were associated with stronger feelings of comfort and security."
"Conversely, cats who slept in their owner’s bed were reported to be equally as disruptive as human partners, and were associated with weaker feelings of comfort and security than both human and dog bed partners."
Well there we have it! Man's best friend might be woman's best sleep!
