did you know when you suddenly jerk awake while falling asleep, another version of you from a different timeline just died

This post fucked me up.

It’s actually because you’re heart rate decreased so quickly that you’re brain jerks you awake to make sure you’re still alive.

i dont know wHICH ONE IS WORSE

Umm, no?  Suddenly awaking with a jerk while falling asleep is known as a hypnic jerk and has absolutely nothing to do with your heart rate.  There’s not much study on it since its benign, but it occurs when your muscles relax in such a way your brain misinterprets it as a falling sensation; survival instincts kick in for half a second, just long enough to jolt you awake.  They can happen to perfectly healthy people, but they can occur more frequently in people with stress, anxiety, and trouble falling asleep.
