Many animals sleep much better than we do – which isn’t too difficult to believe when you notice your cat happily sleeping in the most awkward of positions. However, if you’ve ever looked over at your fury (or scaly) companion and been a little envious of their sleeping pattern, you’re not alone. This infographic from compares the sleeping habits of pets with your own. How do you compare?

4 Tips for Getting a Restful Sleep with a Dog in Your Bed

Tips for Sleeping Like a Feline

If you’d like to get a better night’s sleep, and maybe even wake up as refreshed as cats always seem to (too much energy!), then follow these simple tips;

  • Cancel out noise using earplugs – any sounds of around 40 decibels is enough to keep you awake, for comparison a dog’s bark is roughly 60 decibels.
  • Avoid technology within the 1-2 hour period before bed, as these devices emit “blue-light” that causes the brain to stay awake and active, rather than drifting off to sleep.
  • Refrain from consuming caffeine late on in the day, when consumed later in the day/night, the stimulation of caffeine on the nervous system will prevent the body from being able to drift off to sleep.
  • Get out more! Increasing your exposure to bright light during the day can keep your circadian rhythm healthy and in sync, which will, in turn, improve daytime energy and quality of nighttime sleep.
