You Need to See These Sleeping Animals

Thursday, September 21, 2017

As you know by now, sleep is an essential, and very important, part of human life. Getting the proper amount of sleep allows us to function both physically and mentally throughout the day and lead a healthy life.

 

Sleep is also an essential part of animal life.

 

That’s right, our furry friends couldn’t do what they do without sleep either.

 

That being said, here are a few in restful slumber:

I think I’ll take a nap … right… here.

This pair is sleeping nice and soundly together. Of course, this wouldn't be the case if one of them were snoring.

 

Are you keeping your partner awake throughout the night? Snoring is a sleep apnea symptom. Take our sleep test to get to the root of your snoring problems today.

Everyone needs a comfortable bed to be able to drift off into a peaceful bliss at night.

 

Looks like this guy found one (kind of).

Sleep Fact: Did you know that sloths sleep 10 hours a day?

 

Hopefully not just in this position. That looks like a sore neck waiting to happen!

A sloth can’t compare to this koala who sleeps a total of 22 hours a day -- that’s 90% of his day spent sleeping!

 

Adults only need about 7-9 hours of sleep a night in comparison.

 

Are you struggling to get in your 7-9 hours of sleep every night? There might be more to the problem than simply bad sleeping habits. Sleep apnea could be cause for your restlessness.

 

Let’s figure it out together.

Sleep Fact: A “cat nap” is actually quite a serious thing. You’ll find a cat sleeping for 14-16 hours in total every day.

 

And it seems as though they will sleep almost anywhere…

Just a hedgehog among friends.

 

Sleep Fact: Hedgehogs are nocturnal, so they sleep during the day.

 

You also might be dozing off during the day like our small friend here if you have sleep apnea and are unable to sleep properly at night.

I mean … does it really get any cuter than this?

Sleep Fact: It’s unlikely that you’ve ever seen a giraffe sleeping, because they only require a snooze time of thirty minutes per day.

 

Until the 1950s, researchers didn’t think they slept at all!

 

Don’t get stuck sleeping like a giraffe.
