Five Sleepy Facts
Five Sleepy Facts
Edited by: Grand Health Institute

Here are five things you may not know that hopefully won't keep you awake at night worrying.

1. The longest period without sleep is 11 days and 11 nights, set by Northumbrian Tony Wright in 2007 who survives on just two to three hours' sleep.

2. Mums whose babies sleep badly are at greater risk of post-natal depression, so topping up with naps when you can is important.

3. Older people sleep less deeply and tend to wake after four hours. Newborn babies need around 17 hours' sleep, teenagers a good nine hours.

4. Lack of sleep has been attributed to several high-profile disasters including Exxon Valdez, Chernobyl and the space shuttle Challenger explosion.

5. By the time you're nodding off in your car you've already been asleep multiple times at the wheel for two to three seconds.
