Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher apparently came to sleep four or five hours a night.

But it seems that they are far removed from an ideal example. Experts say that thinking that we only need five or fewer hours is one of the most damaging myths about sleep.

Regularly lasting four or five hours, increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and early death, according to a study of the 20 most common myths about sleep by American researchers.

The problem with alcohol before bedtime is that it reduces sleep quality so that we feel much less rested the next day.

The study, published in the journal Sleep Health, also offers advice to people who have trouble nodding and says they should get up and do something that is not stressful.

The study advises not to watch TV before going to sleep, because it can be involved – making us feel more awake.
