The following is from the Better Sleep Council where they looked at common misconceptions about sleep and whether Americans understand what’s correct. Let’s see how well you fare:
Do you believe that nothing’s really happening when you doze? 154 million Americans believe this statement and yet research shows the brain recharges during sleep and stays in an active state.
About 164 million Americans believe mattresses last about 10 years before you need to replace. As a general rule, your mattress should be replaced every 7 years.
Some 43% of American adults believe a person can catch up on lost sleep over the weekend. In reality, you can’t bank sleep.
