For years, emergency-room personnel have been equating supermoons with wild behaviors. Since their observations have been considered “anecdotal” by many, they are often discounted.
Swiss researchers, however, “found that people slept for 20 minutes less, on average, when there was a full moon.” Perhaps supermoons incur even greater amounts of sleep loss.
Less sleep could mean more problems. Although many people can get by with a 20-minute deficit, this might trigger difficulties in others. A person with bipolar affective disorder, for example, could perhaps shift into a manic phase.
