5 Facts About Sleep You Probably Didn’t Know Before

Sleep is something that is incredibly important in everybody’s lives, but there are many misconceptions that people have about sleep. In reality not much is known about sleep, and it is strange that such a big topic comes with very little knowledge.

There is still lots of interesting and helpful information that is out there, that by learning can help you get more out of your sleep. Below are 5 things that you probably didn’t know about sleep:

The more you sleep the more energy you have could not be further from the truth.

Most people are taught to believe that they need 8 to 10 hours of sleep every night to have enough energy throughout the next day, when in actuality you only 5 to 6 hours. Think of it almost like inertia, an object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest; the more you sleep the more you want to sleep and more tired you feel. So maybe tomorrow try getting up earlier and seeing how much better it makes you feel.

Human beings spend an average of one third of their life sleeping

Think about how long one third of your life is, and how much more time you would have if you slept a little bit less. Some of the most successful people in the world sleep four hours a day, and they use all the time that they aren’t spending on sleeping being productive. How much would get done if everyone slept one hour less to get one more hour of productivity.

If you’re having difficulty falling asleep, turn the temperature down. To be able to fall asleep your body temperature needs to drop a little bit, which is difficult in a room that is too hot. Having a room that is too hot can keep you from sleeping and fully taking advantage of your sleep. Next time it seems like you just can’t fall asleep try turning the temperature down a bit and put on an extra cover if it’s too cold.

The “Freshman 15” is more due to a lack of sleep than anything

Everyone hears horror stories about the “Freshman 15” in college, but what they don’t know is that it is attributed to lack of sleep. People tend to eat more when they aren’t getting enough sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep, your levels a hormone called leptin, which helps regulate your appetite, begin to fall. This triggers an increased appetite. One great way of regulating your diet is by making sure you’re getting enough sleep.

It’s a myth that you have to get one, long sleep cycle.

Some people sleep better on alternative sleep cycles, everyone is different so a continuous, or monophasic, sleep cycle may not be best for you. Many of the greatest minds of the past slept in polyphasic sleep cycles, such as:

· Leonardo Da Vinci

· Albert Einstein

· Margaret Thatcher

· Nikola Tesla

If you don’t think you’re getting enough sleep, try one of these alternative methods:

· The Biphasic Schedule: Two three-to-four-hour sleeps with an hour of awake time in the middle.

· The Dymaxion Sleep Schedule: 30-minute “naps” every 6 hours.

· The Uberman Schedule: Six 30-minute naps per day.

· The Everyman Schedule: A daily three-hour sleep plus three 20-minute naps.

What are Water Filter Jugs and Water Softeners?

The water running from your tap goes through a lot of steps from the various sources they come from, the water treatment plant, and finally into people’s respective homes. Due to the sheer number of steps in the process, water treatment companies tend to opt more for volume and speed when conducting it; that’s why the water that flows in your own homes are potable and generally clean, but you’re not getting the most of what it could be.

It’s a good thing that these days, there are devices you can install in your very own household to further treat the water in order to unlock benefits you won’t get from it straight from the faucet. Products like water filter jugs and water softeners are abound in the market; you just have to know where to look for the one that will properly give the most toward your daily household and drinking needs.

If you want to know what these products are for, then this article will deliver it. Starting with water filter jugs, this particular appliance is used to treat water by creating a physical barrier or a chemical purification process to act as protection from any impurities in the water. Depending on the model of water filter jug, it could use carbon, metallic alloys, or microporous ceramic filters to clean the water before coming out of the tap. Some models even have features that are able to add healthy ions and minerals to make your water loaded with nutrition. And, if you’re wondering what these devices look like, you can check out an example below:

As for what water softeners are, they’re devices more suited for converting water for purposes other than ingestion, such as bathing, cleaning, or doing the laundry. These appliances are used for removing the buildup of lime caused by hard water – water that has a high level of calcium and magnesium in it –, which can extend the life of your home’s very own pipe system. Aside from that, lime buildup can also create rust in appliances that require water like coffee makers or washing machines, not to mention that an abundance of calcium and magnesium ions in the water you use when doing the laundry tends to cause discoloration and stress in your clothes’ fabric. Now, all these can be prevented by a water softener, which either removes these pesky calcium and magnesium ions from the water or replace them with sodium ions that are not at all harmful to any other appliance, pipe, or fabric. You can check the photo below, if you’re wondering what these appliances look like.

Water filtered through a personal sanitary system contributes to preventing the spread of diseases. Microbes and viruses in untreated water, or marginally treated ones in some cases, could easily be eliminated with a water filter jug or water softener. This way, your whole family could be protected from diseases like E.coli, diarrhea, tuberculosis, and many other harmful pathogens that could be in water that comes straight from the tap.

Ever found yourself away from a tv during your favorite team’s live game match and the refresh feature on ESPN isn’t cutting it for you? we can watch movies in ShowBox APK on the android phone anytime anywhere think if we can watch live game match anywhere on our smartphones Well, thankfully they’ve invested some good time and money into a fantastic ESPN Score Center application for the Android OS. The app allows you to see live scores from pretty much any sport you can imagine.

When first setting up ESPN Score Center you need to select which sports you want and which teams are your favorites in order to display their stats and current scores on the application home page. I find the app to be very simple to use and very accurate as far as updating scores go. If I had to find one thing to be picky about it would be the navigation between the 5 pages you have access to. I would like to have the ability to swipe through the pages with my finger as opposed to navigating with a left and right button but this is a small hurdle in my opinion. The pages are customizable and you can add and delete sports as you wish which makes it easy to get a full run through of who’s playing and what the score is despite the league or sport which I find very convenient.

Scores are updated very quickly and upon clicking on the score you are taken to the mobile version of the ESPN website where you can view match information such as lineups and text commentary if it is available. ESPN is the world leader in sports for a reason and has come up with a great way to keep sports fans in the know when away from a computer or television. This app can be found free on the market with ad support at the bottom of every home screen. Find it on the Android market. Download now.
