Sleeping is as essential to our health as breathing, exercise, and eating. You might not know that a lot of common assumptions about sleep are wrong – here are some common myths and facts about sleep, explained.
First, you might think that during the course of your eight hours of sleep that if you wake up for a few minutes you’re only losing those few minutes of sleep. But this isn’t the case and in fact, the reality is a lot worse. When you wake up during the night, you’re more prone to irritability and you have trouble concentrating the next day, just as much as if you’d gotten only a few hours of sleep. It all has to do with what stage of the sleep cycle you’re in during your interruption. You should also make sure that you’re dressed comfortably and warmly, but not too warm. A good fitting, fleece adult onesie is great for a good nights rest and can really change the way you sleep!

Another common myth is that your internal clock is stored in your brain. In fact, lots of different organs and functions control your internal clock, not just your brain. Your kidneys, liver, and even your fatty tissue all regulate how and when you sleep. This is why when you are restless or get little sleep and especially when you experience jet lag, you feel it in your entire body and not just your head. In fact, jet lag and generally not getting enough sleep can put you at risk for different types of cancer including breast and colon. And if you’re just at higher risk for certain diseases, sleeplessness can actually be the thing that pushes you over the edge and sends you on the path to developing those diseases. A great way to avoid jet lag, especially if you’re a regular traveler, is to dress comfortably.

Our final myth is one that is pretty prevalent and deals with insomnia. Many believe that if they wait it out, they will eventually drift off too sleep but this isn’t necessarily the case. If you’re in bed for fifteen to twenty minutes and still haven’t fallen asleep, you might be better off just getting up. This way, you won’t start to associate your bed with being awake (also the reason why you shouldn’t watch TV or read in bed) and instead, associate it with a place where you sleep. Once you get out of bed, try to do something non-stimulating and when you start to feel sleepy, go back to bed and try again. Repeat as often as you need until you’re not associating your bed with anything other than sleep. It’s the best way we know on how to combat chronic insomnia, especially if you don’t want to add drugs to the mix.
