You who sleep every day, how much do you know about sleep?National Sleep FoundationRecently designed a"Sleep Quotient" Quiz. The title isRight or wrongOne point for correct answer. Everyone may wish to give it a try!

(1) During sleep, the brain is resting.

error. The brain is still very active during sleep, preparing for the next day's awakening and optimal state.

(2) If the sleep time is less than the required amount of 1-2 hours, the next day's actions will always be affected.

correct. Adults need 8 hours of sleep a day to stay energetic. How can I know how much sleep I need? The method is very simple, do not set the alarm clock before going to bed, and wake up naturally. This is the amount of sleep you need.

(3) Boredom can cause drowsiness.

error. People feel sleepy when they are bored. However, what really causes drowsiness is lack of sleep. Boredom does not cause drowsiness, it just makes drowsiness more obvious.

(4) Lying in bed and closing your eyes to rest your mind cannot satisfy the need for sleep.

correct. If you don't get enough sleep, your body will accumulate "sleep debt", and sooner or later you will have to pay for it.

(5) Snoring is not harmful as long as it doesn't wake up yourself or affect other people.

error. Snoring represents a health-threatening sleep disorder. Ninety percent of people who snore may suffer from sleep apnea, which may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure.

(6) People dream every night.

correct. Although many people wake up from sleep, they don't feel that they have ever dreamed. But in fact, everyone dreams every night.

(7) The older you get, the less sleep time you need.

error. The amount of sleep required in adulthood does not change much. The amount of sleep required in old age does not decrease compared to when young, but sleep less at night and more sleep during the day. Although sleep difficulties are common in the elderly, age is not the main cause. If you have poor sleep habits or health problems that cause sleep difficulties, it is recommended to consult a specialist.

(8) Most people cannot tell when they will fall asleep.

correct. Most sleep studies point out that people do not know exactly when they will fall asleep. So when you feel tired while driving, even if you are only a few kilometers away from your destination, don't think you can definitely make it through.

(9) When driving, increasing the volume of the music will help keep you awake.

error. If you feel unable to stay awake while driving, the best stopgap measure is to park in a safe place for a nap or have a cup of coffee. But the most effective solution is to get enough rest before setting off.

(10) Sleep disorders are mainly caused by anxiety and psychological disorders.

error. Sleep disorders are caused by a variety of factors, including: environment, diet, disease, and psychology. Worries and psychological barriers are just one of them.

(11) The human body cannot fully adapt to night shift work.

correct. All organisms have a menstrual cycle, also known as a 24-hour rhythm. This will affect the replacement of our sleep and wakefulness. When crossing time zones, you must adjust your circadian rhythm according to the changes in the day and night. While on the night shift, the objective day and night changes have not changed, so the circadian rhythm cannot be adjusted.

(12) Insomnia can be cured without treatment.

error. If you don't pay attention to it properly, the sleep disorder will not disappear automatically, and allowing it to develop will only reduce the quality of life.
