Invite Your Pup Into Your Bedroom
If your dog has turned into your go-to teddy bear at night, good news. According to a study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, those who slept with dogs in their bedrooms actually got better sleep than those who didn’t. And it’s not just because they’re so warm and cozy: it also made them feel safe, making it easier to shut down and relax after a long day. The only problem? Having your dog in bed with you doesn’t have the same effect, so get your pup his own spot to sleep, then invite him in for cuddles in the morning.
