Wie du mit luzidem Träumen deinen Schlaf manipulierst

Ich habe einen wiederkehrenden Traum, den ich einfach nicht abschütteln kann: Darin werde ich in letzter Sekunde zu einer Ballett-Vorführung auf die Bühne gerufen, aber irgendwas läuft schief. Normalerweise vergesse ich einen Schuh, oder ich kann aus irgendwelchen Gründen gar nicht erst zum Theater fahren. Dieser Traum zeugt von meiner generellen Angst davor, zu irgendwelchen Veranstaltungen zu spät oder unvorbereitet aufzukreuzen. Wenn ich sowas geträumt habe, bin ich am nächsten Tag meist...

In 2015, only around 12% of the world population was aged 60 or above. In less than three decades from now, the number of elderly citizens worldwide is expected to grow to 22%.

The bezel is back for Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 3

The rotating bezel has always felt like Samsung’s secret weapon in the smartwatch battle. It is, without question, the best input device. No one, not even Apple’s crown, comes close. For that reason, it was a bit baffling when the company opted to drop it for its Active line of watches. Samsung attempted to convince us all that the “digital bezel” was just as good. It definitely, definitely wasn’t. Thankfully, the newly announced Watch 3 brings back the bezel. The company is quick to note that i...

"Anyone complaining about it being too hot in the bedroom is not just being 'a whining loser.'"

"People who sleep in hot environments have been found to have elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol the next morning.... A study of people with a sleep disorder found that they slept longer in temperatures of 61 degrees Fahrenheit versus 75 degrees. The cold-sleepers were also more alert the next morning. The basic physiology is that your body undergoes several changes at night to ease you into sleep: Your core and brain temperatures decrease, and both blood sugar and heart rate drop. K...

Dear Christine: Why Can’t I Sleep?

Dear Christine, I’m a college student and I haven’t been sleeping well since I got back to school. My sleep tracker app says I’m sleeping about six hours a night, but I’m literally having the worst sleep of my life. I couldn’t fall asleep for hours last night even after taking two melatonin and I’ve been up since 6 a.m. I’m falling apart and not functioning. I’m anxious.

Seven Things You Can Do Outside Work To Be More Successful

“What do you do after you go home at night?” My boss, Ed, and I were having an end-of-day bull session. We talked over the day and the week, and how we were doing. As we were wrapping up, he asked me that question. “Look,” Ed said, “you’re smart and you’re ambitious and you work hard. That’s great. But look around. Everybody who wants to get ahead works hard. They’re smart and ambitious too. What makes the difference is what you do after you leave here.” I thought about that on my drive home. I ...

Want Better Workouts? Hit the Sack Early

We’re overextended and exhausted, but we have weights to lift, miles to run, and muscles to build. The problem, though, is that the only time many people have to achieve fitness goals often overlaps with (what should be) bedtime. It’s a Catch-22. Sleep isn’t something to tamper with. It’s serious business. We need at least seven hours to lower our risks of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and depression. On top of that, getting enough sleep keeps us from dealing with energy-...
