Sleeping, Snoring, Snoozing – A tired book about sleep

Katarina Kuick & Elin Lindell

Sleeping is the best, isn’t it? Which is a good thing, because we humans sleep a third of our life away. Those who live until they’re 90 will sleep for about 30 years! But we’re not wasting our time. On the contrary – sleeping is vital!

Did you know you can solve problems in your sleep, and you can do better on a test if you sleep just before rather than study?

Did you know giraffes only sleep short periods at a time, only 2-3 hours a night? And that they sleep standing up? Did you know that some birds can sleep while flying? Or that dolphins can sleep with one side of their brain, while the other is awake?

And, did you know:
…that every person is born with their own circadian rhythm?
…teenagers should start school later in the morning?
…that the brain cleans up while we are sleeping, both from unnecessary memories and substances that can make us sick?
…a person who sleepwalks has no idea what it’s doing!
