Achoo! How to Take Care of a Sick Partner

Image Source It's that lovely time of year where runny noses and stubborn coughs abound... and there is a good chance your significant other could fall victim to "The Cold." It's that awkward "in between" illness: it's not as major as the flu but it's not a mere tickle in the throat either.

This sensation facilitates the well-known practice of drinking a "nightcap" at the end of a rough day. Unfortunately, too much alcohol before bed can mean anything but "sweet dreams." According to the NIH's Sleep, Sleepiness and Alcohol Use, while alcoholic beverages aid in both falling asleep and reaching slow-wave sleep, they can disrupt our precious rapid eye movement (REM) sleep cycles. REM sleep (the stage when we are most likely to dream) accounts for roughly 20% of a typical night's rest. When we never reach this point in the cycle, our...
