HERE IS A SIMPLE TEST TO ASCERTAIN WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP
'The Truth About Sleep', a new BBC documentary presented by journalist and chronic insomniac Michel Mosley conducts the 'sleep onset latency test'. It's a quick test you take at home in the middle of the afternoon and all you need is a watch, a metal spoon and a metal tray.
WHAT YOU DO?
You simply set a metal tray down next to your bed and lie on the bed, holding the spoon out over the side of the bed. Check the time and then close you eyes and see how long it takes you to get to sleep. As soon as you fall asleep, your hand will release the spoon, dropping it on the tray and waking you up. When you wake up, check how long it took you to fall asleep. If it takes you fewer than 10 minutes to fall asleep in the afternoon, you're sleep deprived.If it's less than five minutes, you may have severe sleep deprivation.
Also, in light of this, if you are having trouble sleeping, below are six(6) recommended ways to getting better sleep:
