Are you the sort of person who can fall asleep anywhere at anytime? While that seems like an admirable talent, Lifehacker says it's actually a sign that you're chronically sleep-deprived. "It’s not a superpower to consistently fall asleep the second you have a chance to relax," the site warns. "It’s possible for people who don’t get enough sleep to feel alert most of the time, and then zonk out the minute they get a little peace and quiet." If you often fall asleep watching TV, while lying down to rest or on long car rides (hopefully you're not the one behind the wheel!) then it's likely what you really need is more sleep at night.
