When you are about to fall asleep and you do the thing
okay but do you actually know what the story behind that twitchy thingy is?? Because it’s so cool!
Okay, so this is how it works:
When you fall asleep like really quickly because you’re pretty exhausted, your organs and all slow down to go on the ‘stand by’ mode for the night. And when that happens pretty quickly - cause remember, you’re pretty exhausted - then the brain gets a little panicky and paranoid and thinks: OMG! What’s going on?? Is the body dying?? WHAT THE HELL?!
Yeah so the brain’s being a little drama queen and overreacts and sends out electrical shockwaves to shock the body out of ‘dying’ and that’s the twitches you get…
PRETTY COOL STUFF HUH?!?! :)
