Better Sleep Month - Myths

The aim of Better Sleep Month is to encourage people to establish better sleeping patterns. Sleep is crucial to our physical, emotional and mental health.

Many experts believe that between 7 1/2 and 8 1/2 hours of sleep a night is optimal. However, better sleep does not refer to just the length of time we sleep.

Myths about Sleep

Sleeping ib on Saturday. You can't make up for sleep you've lost or bank sleep for the future, so it's best to plan for 7 to 8 hours each night.

Drinking before bed can help you sleep. Alcohol does make you sleepy,butalcohol is metabolized throughout the night and is likely to disturb your sleep. Alcohol also reduces REM sleep, so it's best not to drink it before bed.

Counting sheep is a popular suggestion to help you fall asleep. An Oxford University study showed doing this actually lengthens the time it takes to sleep. Instead, listen to soothing music or read a book to help you fall asleep.

Thanksgiving turkey makes you sleepy. Turkey does contain tryptophan which can cause sleepiness, but it doesn't have more than any other meat. The heavy meal, busy day, extra work to prepare a feast is more likely the reason you're sleepy.

Buy a firm mattress if you have back pain. The fact is that mattress choice is a very personal thing and what feels good to one person may not for another. Try out a variety of mattresses to see what seems most comfortable for you. The mattress that will alleviate back issues for one person may not be the same for another.

It's illegal to remove mattress tags. It is fine for consumers to take off the tag after purchase there are no mattress police.
