COOL SLEEPING FACTS


COOL SLEEPING FACTS

1. Humans spend 1/3 of their life sleeping
This obviously differs depending on the age of the human, but on average it’s around a third, which is quite a lot when you think about it.

2. Parasomnia is a term that refers to unnatural movements during your sleep.
Some people have even committed crime due to parasomnia, including sleep driving and even murder.

3. Sleep deprivation will kill you more quickly than food deprivation
Neither are good for you, obviously, but this article claims that sleep is actually more important than food in the short term.

4. Ideally, falling asleep at night should take you 10-15 minutes
If it takes you less than five minutes, chances are you are sleep deprived.

You can sleep better at night knowing that there is a Peermed available near you: http://www.peermed.co.za
