In order to start the week off right, I thought I would share an infographic very appropriate for a Monday, one entitled “16 Things You Didn’t Know About Sleep.” As I write this I think about how amazing sleep is and of those mornings when sleep is just too appealing to pass up. As we all know sleep is essential to life. It is one of the activities we will spend a large amount of our life engaged in.
Sleeping works better than any medicine or home remedy, sleeping is the cure-all. Whether you are recovering from activities done the night/day before or recovering from an illness, or perhaps you have 15 fifteen minutes in between classes, in all cases sleep is the answer. There is no safer or better feeling than being in between a comfortable mattress and a warm blanket.
One interesting tidbit that you may be unaware of which this infographic suggests is that color television has actually affected the way people dream. According to the infographic, 12% of people dream in black and white, but when color television was invented and became more popular, more people began dreaming in color.
As a college student I now realize the importance of sleep. Never have I treasured that time as much as I do now. I remember back when nap time existed and I used to waste that time pretending to be asleep, as I’m sure a lot of you did. Now I wish that I could have that time back. I know I would take full advantage and sleep all the way through. [via]
