A person's sleep is one of the most mysterious states. It is shrouded in many myths and conjectures, and some of them play a disastrous role for human health. We have collected the most popular and are ready to debunk them.
Myth 1. You can sleep off for the future or "catch up" with hours of sleep deprivation
Myth 2. Increased physical activity before going to bed helps you fall asleep faster
Myth 3. The older we get, the fewer hours of sleep we need
Myth 4. Sleep is a time of rest for the brain
Myth 5. A warm bed and a thick blanket will help you fall asleep faster and get a better night's sleep
The room should be fresh and cool. The best option would be a temperature of 18-20 degrees. According to doctors, in this case, a person sleeps more comfortably and recovers faster. Ideally, you should leave the window ajar for the whole night. But the option of good ventilation before going to bed is also suitable. You should sleep under a blanket — then sleep will be easy.
