Myths and Facts about Sleep

There are a lot of myths about sleeping that are actually not true.

For starters, snoring is a common problem that is especially common in men. Although snoring is harmless for most people, it can be harmful to some with sleep apnea, so be sure to talk to your doctor if snoring is becoming a problem for you or a loved one.

The second myth is that you can “catch up” on sleep. This basically means that if you lose hours of sleep you can make them up just by getting more sleep the next night. Stick to a normal sleep schedule each night and don’t worry about getting the hours back.

When driving and while drowsy some people believe that turning up the radio, opening a window or turning the air conditioner on are helpful things to do. Actually, the best thing to do if you are sleepy while driving is to pull over in a safe location.

Daytime sleepiness doesn’t always mean that the person isn’t getting enough sleep. It could be an underlying medical condition like narcolepsy. Daytime sleepiness can be dangerous and can put a person at risk for drowsy driving, injury, and illness and can impair mental abilities, emotions, and performance.
