Why you shouldn't sleep when the sun sets: old superstitions

It has long been considered better not to go to sleep at sunset

It has long been believed that it is better not to go to bed when the sun goes down. The history of this superstition dates back to Ancient Egypt when it was believed that it was at this time that the souls of the dead passed to the afterlife.

A similar belief exists in Slavic traditions. OBOZREVATEL analyzed the essence of superstition.

Most interpretations boil down to one thing: sleeping at sunset will not improve your health. It can even worsen your health.

According to folk beliefs, you shouldn't sleep at sunset because it is during this period that a person becomes especially vulnerable. Such sleep can deprive you of energy and lead to even greater fatigue or headaches.

Our ancestors used to say that at this time, nightmares and nightmarish predictions would come in dreams.

According to the most radical version, sleeping at this time of day can even bring death closer.

Esotericists agree with the superstition. According to their observations, sleeping during sunset is especially not recommended for people with a weak biofield - they are most vulnerable to negative energy.
