Many people face the problem of cold hands. As a rule, hands are freezing despite the weather and temperature.

How long can people live without sleep? The question is not without a trick, so the answer will largely depend on individual characteristics of the organism. For example, 19-year-old high school student Randy Gardner from California could avoid sleep for 11 days (264.30 hours) without any stimulants. However, it was back in 1963. Repeating the same experiment now, when we are overloaded with information and visual stimuli, is not the best idea. Sufficient daily sleep is necessary not only in order to put all the data received during the day on the necessary shelves, but also to restore the body. After all, sleep starts and accelerates body regeneration. The creators of the most advanced pajamas in the world were guided by this principle. These cutting-edge pajamas can literally rebuild your body while you are sleeping.
