Eating food in bed is sometimes considered a luxury and can be a romantic experience between a couple. Conversely, it could cause relationship problems.
Carl Walsh at Bed Guru: “The bedroom should be harmonious and calming. If there are clothes on the floor or crumbs in the bed, you will feel distracted, which can cause your mind to feel overwhelmed, and this could impact your sleep.
“This could lead to strained relationships between partners. Sleep deprivation can cause mood swings and irritation with the people closest to you.”
