Quality sleep and the pursuit of quality sleep is an essential component of life that we all know we can’t deny. We cannot underestimate the importance of sleep. There is a strong correlation between quality sleep and success.

Unfortunately, over the years, there have been lots of sleep myths, and people have relied heavily on these myths daily. Why some myths are false, others are entirely accurate. We’ve compiled a list of myths for our readers and ranked them according to their trueness and falsehood. Let’s get started.

Adults Require Not More Than Five Hours Of Sleep

One of the strangest myths in the world revolves around the quantity of sleep for adults. Most people feel that adults require five or fewer hours of sleep. But this is totally wrong. If you want to get enough rest and attain the ability to function optimally during the day, then you need more than five hours of sleep.

Experts believe that we are supposed to sleep between 7 and 10 hours of sleep every night. Sleep deprivation is one of the leading causes of stress, depression, and anxiety. What’s more, sleeping less than five hours every night increases your risk of several health challenges. Several studies have shown that poor sleep can lead to a weakened immune system, high blood pressure, high risk of stroke, lack of libido, and more.

Falling Asleep Anywhere, Anytime Is A Sign Of Good Health

Falling asleep anywhere and anytime isn’t a healthy sign. Most persons pride themselves on their ability to fall asleep instantly as soon as they enter the train or airplane. However, this shouldn’t be praised as it shows that you are not getting enough sleep. It shows that your body is exhausted, and as such, it takes any stationery moment to fall asleep.

The reason why you fall asleep with reckless abandon is because of an accumulation of adenosine in the brain. A quality sleep reduces this chemical buildup so that when you are awake, you are at your best.

Your Body And Brain Is Built To Adapt To Less Sleep

Lots of people believe that the body and brain are built to adapt to less sleep. This is also a myth. The reason for this is that your body cycles through 4 sleep phases to regain itself.

In the first stage, the sleep is light as you gradually disconnect from the environment. The second stage is where most people spend most of their sleep. The third and fourth stage is where the deepest and most restorative sleep is found.

Drinking Alcohol Makes You Fall Asleep

Lots of people think that a few drinks of alcohol will help them fall asleep and stay asleep. This is also a myth. Although alcohol may help you fall asleep, but this the only benefit it gives you. Rather it keeps you in the light stage of sleep and depletes your quality of sleep at night.

Instead of you falling into a deep sleep, your eye continues to move and thus preventing you from deeper stages of sleep. Therefore when you wakeup, you feel fatigued.
