2. A Full Moon Can Lead To A Lack Of Sleep, Which Can Then Affect Your Mood

“The moon may or may not make some of us crazy and behave erratically in an inexplicable way, but it can affect sleep,” Serena Poon, reiki master and practitioner, tells Bustle. “And for some of us, the lack of adequate, restful sleep can definitely affect our mood and behavior.” A 2013 study published in the journal Current Biology found that sleep can be significantly affected by lunar phases. Participants in the study experienced sleep disruptions and spent less time in the deepest phase of sleep during a full moon. They also slept less and reported to having the lowest quality of sleep during these times. The interesting thing is, participants were in a controlled environment the entire time and didn’t know what time it was. According to researchers, the reason behind why there’s a correlation is still pretty much a mystery. However, they theorize that our internal biological rhythms may be linked to the moon’s cycle.
