Sex the best ‘sleeping pill’, study shows
In a world where we have more or less accepted the inevitability of stress in our daily lives, sleeping is sometimes seen as a recourse. According to a study carried out by scientists at the University of South Carolina, sex is an activity than helps people sleep well at night. The ‘dos’ and ‘donts’ before hitting the sack are presented in an article by British newspaper ‘Daily Mail’, Eric Kezirian and his team composed a list of what someone should and should not do before going to bed in order to enjoy a good night’s, stress free sleep. They found out that having sex was the best sleeping pill, while the consumption of large amounts of alcohol or food were extremely detrimental. Other activities that should be avoided included late night physical exercise, as it increases our hormone levels, avoid doing things that increase stress levels like checking our e-mails or television.
