Sharing a bed can be hard, especially when you have slept alone your whole life. Whether it is sleeping in a hotel room with dad’s loud snoring, or sharing a bed with a friend at a sleepover, losing hours – even minutes – of sleep can affect your day.

Studies also show that we need a good eight hours of sleep to function properly the following day.
