I frequently write about sleep; I’m sure you’ve noticed. I do this because I feel that sleep is incredibly important and the modern society consists of people who are woefully deficient in it.
We certainly don’t understand everything about sleep, and it seems like we learn something new about it on a regular basis. I thought this infographic was pretty interesting, especially the bit about the sleep experiences of blind people. It comes courtesy of the Daily Infographic website. (Click to view full size.)
If you’re looking for some additional information about getting the best sleep possible, I recommend you check out the book Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar, and Survival. It covers a lot of the science behind some of the concepts mentioned here in more depth.
