How does sleep - and lack of it - affect our health? How does jet lag work? Is it normal to be awake in the middle of the night? Can sleep deprivation make you fat? And what was Winston Churchill’s secret strategy to stay alert throughout the day?

Sleep is something that concerns and affects all of us; no one can escape this basic, primal human need. Rich and poor, young and old - we all have to fit at least a few hours of shut-eye into our busy schedule each day. And perhaps because sleep seems so basic and so universally human, that we still believe in so many old "truths", prejudices and myths about its function. 

In this course, we'll take a closer look at some of these myths about the role that sleep plays in affecting our health and well-being. Some of them are true, while others have no bearing on reality or modern research. 

Are you curious to know more about how a better night's sleep can boost your health and promote learning, concentration, creativity, weight loss and well-being?

Said about the course:

"I think I took seven out of the eight myths as truths before taking this course. Thank youLina!"

Sounds interesting?
