Two sleep experts debunk 15 of the most common myths about sleep. They explain that boredom, alone, doesn’t make you tired and that you should get out of bed if you can’t fall asleep. They also debunk the idea that loud snoring is nothing more than annoying. In fact, it’s often a sign of a serious sleep disorder that can seriously compromise your sleep.

    As an Engineering student, I must say this video was an acid trip bro. Or maybe its cause I haven't slept in 49 hours. Finals weeks is a roller coaster.

      FnaTic Silva might not feel nice at all but this should basically force your body to fix the problem: - Set alarm clock to whatever time you actually want to wake up in. - Obey the alarm clock, don’t go back to sleep after hearining it, no matter how tired you are. - workout during the day. (Use/burn calories). I suggest that you workout for 2-3 hours and have a nice large meal before bed so alot of insulin is released. If you don’t feel like working out so hard/long just go for a 1-2 hour walk. - Don’t stare at screens for atleast 1 hour before bed. Did you do all as suggested, results?

    The food one reminded me of my mom. She used to say that when she ate bananas before bed she would always have nightmares. So she named them banana nightmares ever so appropriately.

    An alternative possibility for the conception about cheese could come down to the bacteria. What we eat effects our mood and we all have a slightly different microbiome which can react to a stronger cheese.

    Actually, 6 to 8 hours is the new wisdom. The length of sleep isn't the issue, but your sleep hygiene. How much Deep and REM are you getting during this time? 5 hours is the ABSOLUTE and very rare minimum requirement and anything beyond 8 is a sign of something wrong and is bad for health. We all vary for a number of reasons

    If I got up every time I can’t sleep I’d barely sleep, my body clock would be all over the place. I think a good week is if the number of nights that I actually do sleep is greater than the number of nights that I get no sleep, barely sleep or sleep badly. If I do get a really good nights’ sleep I can barely move in the morning because of eds.
