My day job is a Change Manager. I currently am in the process of managing 330+ people through the change of moving from one building to another. Not only are we moving buildings, we’re drastically changing the types of spaces we will work in and how we work with each other. The environment will be […]
‘Sleep Apart, Stay Together’… why of course!
Bed manufacturer Sealy (in the UK) has released the findings of a recent study into British sleep habits. While one could be a little cynical about a bed manufacturer espousing the benefits of couples sleeping separately, the stats of 36% of couples sleeping separately (even sometimes) does confirm the broad trends I discovered while […]
A Ubiquitous Dilemma…
Just a quick one. I had to smile when I was alerted to this great forum discussion about separate sleeping. There are many forum discussions that take place on the topic, but they do tend to be on forums about relationships, or mums and kids. However, the Texas Fishing Forum has an ‘Off Topic’ discussion […]
Want more sex??
Get more sleep. Pardon the simplicity, but it’s true. The Journal of Sexual Medicine has published a study that show’s there’s a direct relationship between how much sleep you have and your sexual desire the next day. I have been asked a gazillion times (or just a few times less) about the effect that sleeping […]
To sleep, or not to sleep? That IS the question….
(I feel the need to share that this is the first post I have attempted from not only my iPad, but from a remote location. Hoi An, Vietnam, nonetheless, as I enjoy three weeks away with my lovely husband.) Even though I am placing a good deal of confidence in my skills of posting from […]
(Steve) Harvey Schmarvey…
Oh Oprah! You need to re-think who you are inviting on your show to give advice. While not super recent, this little video advice snippet has popped up again and pricked at my delicate heckles all over again. Steve Harvey (for the uninitiated) is described by our friends at Wikipedia as an ‘American comedian, television […]
Scratching a feminist itch….
I have never been in a position where I felt I needed to identify or characterise myself as a feminist. However, I do know how fortunate I am to live in a social environment where I feel equal. And if pushed by commentary or controversy, without hesitation I would thank all those women before me […]
Let’s talk about sleep baby…
“Let’s talk about you and me, let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be….” (Minor apologies to Salt-N-Peppa) While a commitment at 48 mins and 57 secs this discussion on Radio Times this discussion delves well into some familiar themes of the separate sleeping debate.
By definition a paradox is: ‘ a statement that apparently contradicts itself and yet might be true’ The by line of the definition goes on to say that ‘most logical paradoxes are known to be invalid arguments but are still valuable in promoting critical thinking’. Let’s consider this statement: “My sleep is so disturbed by […]
You’re kidding me….
As if the popular/celebrity media doesn’t use the ‘separate bed’ scenario enough to indicate trouble in a relationship, now it’s the sports media. Case in point – over the last week there have been multiple articles questioning if Jessica Simpson and new husband Eric Johnson are already ‘sleeping in separate beds’ (inhale great gasp of […]
