Society plays an enormous role in shaping our attitudes towards sleepand this affects how much sleep we get. Sleep, in turn, has a major impact upon society, influencing childhood learning and development, affecting workplace safety and efficiency, and even risk-taking behaviour.
Sleepiness and sleep disorders cost the economy billions of pounds each year in days off work, lost time, inefficiency and accidents, yet the machismo associated with short sleep and long work hours is pervasive. Society glorifies „driven“ individuals who succeed on apparently little sleep, whereas those who prioritise sleep are viewed as weak and not having the „right stuff“. Some professions even demand excessive sleep deprivation as part of the job or a „rite of passage“.
In addition to work, many other factors affect our sleep, including children, pets, noise pollution, temperature, bed type, pain, gender, bed partner, your income, hobbies, alcohol, drugs and medications, exercise, television, radio, computers, telephones – the list goes on and on. Some of these factors can be relatively simple to deal with on an individual level, for example using earplugs, wearing bed-socks, taking the TV, radio, computer, telephone and pets out of the bedroom, drinking less alcohol, exercising earlier, and going to bed earlier. However, some things are impossible to change, such as our genes and sunrise.
one of the factors that can affect sleeping habit is:
Light is one of the most important external factors that can affect sleep. It does so both directly, by making it difficult for people to fall asleep, and indirectly, by influencing the timing of our internal clock and thereby affecting our preferred time to sleep.
people have there own preference,when it comes to sleep,some can sleep on the day time and some only at night.
the main point is to sleep enough so that our mined can function properly.
