Full moon and sleep habits

We are all probably aware of myths related to full moon in the sky and its relation with our changes in sleep and mood. Interestingly researchers found that full moon affects our sleep patterns in real life too. Their data showed a drop in brain function which is related to deep sleep by about three tenth. Also they found that people took more time to fall asleep (about 5 minutes more) and overall slept 20 minutes less time overall in full moon nights. Although most of us may not have noted such sleep pattern changes because we probably don’t get the opportunity to see the moon every-night we go to sleep. However, you may try to check how does it affect your health. The best part of such finding hint probably to our relation with nature and the universe. How technologically smart we may be it shows that finally we are simply the products of mother nature like insects, sharks and dolphins responding to various natural cues.
