Interesting Research on Sleep Patterns

Today I read a great article regarding sleep patterns, both current and historical.

Dr Joseph Mercola, an Illinois physician who is known worldwide for his work in health and wellness, covers the subject of sleep patterns.

Dr Mercola argues that our sleep patterns have changed radically throughout the last century, and that some current sleep disorders, may actually be an instinctive attempt to return to a natural biological sleep pattern.

Read the article below and decide for yourself.

    A very interesting article

  2. Interesting article, but not sure where I fit. Nights with wine before bed I sleep 8 to 10 hours with a few nighttime bathroom calls. Drop wine for detox, sleep 7 to eight hours with a few bathroom calls. Of course I have a high energy burn because I dont medicate my lifetime ADHD (67) and dont fight my urge to be hyperactive and keep moving all the time. On those rare days when I cant sleep, I simply get up and start working until I am tired again. It’s all good, because when you beat your body with hyperactivity, you must heal it with sleep.

  3. I am a big believer in sleep! Seriously I don’t think people understand how important it is until they have a problem sleeping. I sleep between seven to nine hours and usually wake up before my alarm. I need more sleep in the winter and less in the summer. I think society has made us equate sleeping with being lazy. People tend to brag about how little sleep they need when in reality they would be more productive if they gave their mind and body the rest it needed.
