Perhaps, however, not everyone knows what happens to those who do not do it well enough. They might also be unaware that there is a day of the year in which we celebrate “sleep” and that, to reconcile sleep, we have other natural and simple remedies available, in addition to counting sheep.
Everything you don't know about sleep, explained well
1. World Sleep Day
2. Those who sleep little risk negative health complications
Sleep disorders affect almost 45% of the world's population
3. The benefits of a nap
Sleep disorders have high social costs and complicate the health of the individuals
4. The dreamlike dimension of sleep
- We all dream! There are certainly those who are easier to remember what happened during the night and those who are completely unaware, but it is an activity from which no one is excluded.
- Dreams have short legs: 50% of what we dream is forgotten within 5 minutes of waking up, and after 10 minutes almost 90% has disappeared.
- We do not only dream in the REM phase. Most of the dream activity is concentrated in the deepest phase of our rest, but to a lesser extent, it also takes place during NREM sleep
- Usually we dream in colour, with a prevalence of pastel colors, but about 12% of people say they dream in black and white.
- Those who sleep can dream brilliant ideas. It seems, in fact, that in dreams, melodies like Beatles' Yesterday, literary works like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, revolutionary inventions like the sewing machine, and lucky intuitions like the Google search engine were born.
