(ORDO NEWS) — During the rain, you often feel like sleeping. Why this happens, Australian scientists explained.
So, in the rain drowsiness increases due to a decrease in atmospheric pressure, as a result, the heart rate slows down, organs receive less oxygen, which affects the brain tissue, which is responsible for the activity of the body.
According to experts, in rainy weather the amount of sunshine is reduced, which blocks the production of the hormone melatonin during the day, and as a result, the biological clock is turned off inopportune.
In addition, the calming factors are the rhythmic noise of raindrops and the smell of the earth after rain – all this reduces brain activity and improves a person’s sleep, scientists concluded.
