ArabiaWeather - We all love a good sleep, but perhaps we will not enjoy it much if we do not have control over it. Imagine falling into a deep sleep during an important job interview, in the middle of an important presentation, or, God forbid, while you are driving a car!

Imagine waking up and realizing that uncontrollable sleep attacks happen to everyone at the same time and all over the world. How would our world change if we all had to follow the same sleep schedule?

Can everyone sleep at the same time?

In fact, there is no phenomenon that would cause the entire population of the Earth to have a fixed sleep schedule, to sleep and wake up at the same time, but since the potential implications of this scenario are worth exploring, let's think about it a little, in an increasingly connected global society where everyone works together in different parts of the world. of the world spatially and temporally.

What if everyone fell asleep at the same time?

At first, it seems that if everyone slept at the same time it would be great for global unity and communication, as everyone would follow one productive schedule, but would it have an impact on our bodies?

The Earth is divided into 24 different time zones, and if everyone on Earth decided to sleep at the same time, the experience would be different depending on the region in which the person lives. For example, if an uncontrolled sleep wave began at 10 p.m. in New York City, it would be 11 p.m. Morning in Tokyo; Which means that people there will sleep in broad daylight.

Not an example scenario, but that's okay; Humans can fit in with sleep during the day, as can people who work shifts and night shifts, and in addition, there are many benefits to the whole world of this idea that certainly outweigh the harms, right?

The planet will get 8 hours of rest when everyone sleeps at the same time

Let's take a closer look; Global communications as a result of everyone sleeping at the same time will become more efficient, productivity will become significantly better, and it will be possible to reach everyone at the same time and at the same time; Our planet will then get a huge break, as there will be an 8-hour break every day from pollution and resource depletion.

Reducing the production of electrical plants at the same time every day will reduce the use of electricity on a planetary scale. That all sounds great, doesn't it? If only it were that simple.

What is the harm caused by everyone sleeping at the same time?

But, you see, half the world will be working against their natural sleep cycles and therefore our workforce will not be as efficient because that half will not be working at full capacity.

In addition, industries such as logging, landscaping and agriculture will all be in a difficult situation due to the lack of natural light from the sun, and we also have what is called an “environmental benefit”; Which won't last long.

Sure, our planet will get 8 hours of rest, but that means that all our pollution and resource depletion will be concentrated in the hours when we're all awake. The same goes for our electricity consumption: the power grid will get a good 8 hours of rest, but that will only follow. A global increase when everyone wakes up at the same time and starts using their lights and appliances.

The effect of sleeping during the day on your body

Moreover, apart from the fact that you can get used to it, working “at night” is very harmful to your health. Because trying to sleep during daylight hours conflicts with your body's biological clock. It can affect your memory and processing abilities, deplete your body's stores of vitamins, and may be linked to increased cases of depression, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

So, next time you feel bad about waking up early to go to work or study, try to keep things in perspective, at least you can control your sleep time.
