DID YOU KNOW THAT TODAY IS WORLD SLEEP DAY? Yeah, there’s a day like this too!

Honestly, we’re sh00k because we just got to know about it. We’re glad that there’s a day dedicated to the celebration of sleep and here are 5 reasons why this day should be declared as a National holiday!

1. Stop reading this article and just go to sleep already because you don’t really need a reason!

We know you are still reading this, so here are other reasons why we deserve a chhuti today!

2. Sexsomnia- it is an actual thing!

About 8% of people have ‘sleep sex,’ where they get turned-on while they're not fully conscious. It is more likely to happen when you go to bed feeling horny but fall asleep before doing the deed *wink wink* or when you are dreaming about sex, your body starts to act it out while your mind is still asleep!

On a different note, we’re wondering- Why does the night fall but never breaks and the day breaks but never falls?

3. Strangers in your dreams aren't really strangers!

Yep! You cannot dream about people you’ve never seen- you might’ve crossed paths or interacted somewhere somehow but it is absolutely impossible to see strangers in your sleep.

4. 1/3 of your life is spent sleeping!

This obviously differs from person to person but on average it’s around a third, which is quite a lot when you think about it! Well, of course- we’re lazy and our beauty sleep is a prime concern.

5. Dysania- we're all suffering from this!

Do you struggle when the alarm goes off every morning? If you have a difficult time moving out of bed, you could have something called Dysania. This means you simply can’t get out of bed for about 1 to 2 hours after you wake up and honestly, we’re all suffering from this viral condition!

Personally we think these are reasons enough for the Government to make this a national holiday! We have given you enough facts to ponder upon so just go and catch some ZZzZzzZs already.
