Anyone wants to go on holiday. But not many people support the idea of sleeping on a bed different from the one, though this is always inevitable. The first night on another bed can be a real torture. Many people suffer from a kind of 'nighttime effect', which makes them make a terrible sleep.

But why is it that we sleep so badly the first night in another bed?

That explains many things ...

First night

Is it a bad night because of a terrible mattress? Not at all! Even if the mattress is super mild, it may seem absolutely impossible to fall asleep that night. So what are you doing? Recent studies show that the brain is guilty!


Even when you are sleeping, your brain is active, so it's working. When you are on vacation, the left brain (left hemisphere) is more active than usual, according to researchers. Apparently, this is because you are in a place you do not know and the brain connects this with the risk. So even when you are asleep, you are in the "ready" role for any potential risk. Your left hemisphere is working harder at night, but your right hemisphere has the same level of activity as you are at home. This imbalance in the activity between the two hemispheres causes that disorder that tortures you to sacrifice all night.

Fortunately, this is not a problem for a long time; the brain is taught very quickly about the new situation. Chances are that you can sleep as a lamb during the second night of your vacation.
