Hey there and welcome to Life Noggin.
I'm pretty lucky.
As long as my animator doesn't turn off his computer, I can stay up all night
and never have to worry about sleeping when I wanna watch well...
quite frankly way too many youtube videos.
You humans aren't so fortunate though.
Some of you even tell me you have trouble getting to bed!
So why can it be so hard to fall asleep?
Well, to begin, you humans fall asleep by going from a state of being awake to unconscious
sleep.
We're a little unclear on the exact process, but basically it starts when your winding
down and your brain exhibits some alpha activity.
You eventually enter stage 1 of sleep, where your brain waves slow down and theta-band
activity is introduced, with some bursts of alpha activity still occuring.
Later comes stage 2, where the alpha activity dies down.
Then there are stages 3 and 4, characterized by delta waves.
Finally, you enter the REM stage of sleep, where dreaming is often reported, while you're there you can
have awesome adventures with your favorite animation!
You can spend the rest of the night cycling between different stages.
But why can sleep be so difficult sometimes?
Well, aside from worrying about that one thing that you did in middle school several years ago
it might have something to do with what you're eating.
Drinks and food with caffeine can cause sleep disturbances, especially when you have them
closer to bedtime.
Protein could also be the culprit.
It's an important nutrient for the body, but can be harder to break down and digest
than other foods.
That, along with it containing tyrosine, an amino acid that aids neurotransmitter production,
may make it hard to get some rest if you have a bunch of protein before bed.
so put down that protein shake dude. You really don't need it. Just go to bed!
We all know that it can be harder for you humans to fall asleep if there is a bunch
of loud noise going on, but some people say it might also be difficult if it’s too quiet.
Having your thermostat set too high or low might also lead to some late night restlessness.
And if you find it hard to get some Z's, you might be a werewolf!
Well, probably not, but a recent study did find that people might have a harder time
sleeping during a full moon.
Their participants took around 5 minutes longer to fall asleep, had a 30% decrease in deep
sleep, and slept around 20% less when there was a full moon.
Maybe that's why those lycanthropes are always angry.
They're just tired!
So if you do have trouble falling asleep, the National Sleep Foundation has some tips.
They say to carve out about 30 minutes to wind down before you go to bed and try to
disconnect from your electronics.
but obviously, ya know, finish this video first!
Maybe try a breathing or relaxation exercise and do your best to wake up around the same
time everyday.
I'm pretty sure my research team is going to get a whole bunch of ads for a new bed after doing research
for this video.
So do you have any tips for falling asleep?
Let me know in the comments below!
and if you enjoyed this video then you're definitely gonna wanna check out the video
we did on how much sleep you really need
As always, I'm Blocko and this has been Life Noggin.
Don’t forget to keep on thinking!
