6. Consuming Carrots Improve Vision


Vitamin A does help your eyesight, but carrots actually don’t have any Vitamin A. Carrots have beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Pumpkin pie, kale, butter squash, apricots, spinach and sweet potatoes also give you vitamin A.

5. Don’t Wake a Sleep Walker

Sleep walking

Leaving a sleepwalker to continue on their way is not the safest option. There is the fear that sleepwalkers will attack the person waking them, but that is not true. However, it may be alarming to the person if you wake them.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends directing the person back to their bed or walking beside them for a while to ensure that they don’t get in a car and take off! Use loud, sharp noise to wake them from a distance if you can’t get them back to bed.
