A study done by the University of British Columbia in Canada determined that if you're in a long-distance relationship or your significant other is gone, you can sleep a lot better by smelling their stinky t-shirt.

The people involved  in this study put a t-shirt on for 24 hours, without deodorant, perfume, or cologne. Then they had those people's significant others sleep with those shirts over their pillow and also had some people sleep with unscented shirts. They determined that the people who got to smell their partner through the night had better sleep quality and even felt more well-rested. Another perk, the people in the study even got an extra hour of sleep per week on average.

The researchers say that sleeping with your significant other's T-shirt provides the same benefits as taking a sleep aid like melatonin supplements. Sleeping with a stinky t-shirt is not my thing. I would have to pass on giving this a try. But, it might be worth a shot if your significant other travels a lot for work or if you are having trouble sleeping.
