A bad night’s sleep doesn’t just mean you’ll be tired the next day; you are more prone to making bad decisions. Because sleep is incredibly important to our happiness and productivity; there are also a lot of myths and misconceptions about sleep.

Here are some common ones to look out for:

Sleep myth no. 1: If you’re functioning at work, you’re getting sufficient sleep.

Sleep myth no. 2: Everyone functions best on eight hours of sleep.

Sleep myth no. 3: You can binge on sleep on the weekends to “catch up”.

Sleep myth no. 4: You can train yourself to be a morning person (or a night person).
