Sleep is absolutely essential for every human being. It is important for our health and well being, but there’s a lot things we don’t know about sleep. Even though scientist still have not figured out the process of sleep entirely, there are some things we do know about this daily activity. Here are five sleeps fact you’ve never heard before.
1. Stress alarm clock
Stress creates an internal alarm clock. You know those times when you have an important appointment, and you always wake up before your alarm goes off? That’s because of the stress hormone adrenocorticotropin.
2. Noise Interrupts
Even if you are sleeping, you still hear noise at night. Hearing noise at night has an impact on your sleep quality, yes even if you don’t wake up. Noise during the first and last two hours of sleep, have been shown to have the greatest disruptive effect on the sleep cycle.
3. A Newborn Baby
Did you know, according to data gathered by Sleepy’s, a newborn baby causes around 1055 hours of lost sleep for parents in the first year? That’s like 44 days.
Sometimes alcohol may help you fall asleep, but in reality it will worsen sleep quality. the alcohol interferes with your restorative REM sleep and will make you wake up more than usual throughout the night.
5. Black and white
