Better sleep equals a better relationship? Really?
I am constantly trying to improve myself and my marriage. So when I discovered a book about waking up early, and the positive impact it would have on my life, I was all over it.
The book comes with a challenge to wake up very early for 30 consecutive days. My goal was to get out of my bed by 5 am each day, weekends included. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. Personally and relationally.
Changing my habits impacted my relationship
I learned quite a few things through it all. First, I found out in order for me to wake up early, I had to get in bed earlier than I had been. When I did that I got great sleep. When I didn’t, my sleep was okay at best.
I read a recent article on Your Tango about catching sleep and having better relationships. I can vouch as I experienced it during my 30-day challenge when getting better sleep. Our relationship began to have a different vibe based on how well I slept.
You should try it yourself!
