Sleep tight…!


Some people say Sleep is just a waste of time while some others say it is really important to lead a happy and healthy life…

Here is little more of what it actually is and why is it needed so much…

We spend about 1/3rd of our life in sleep…

It’s impossible to tell if someone is really awake without close medical supervision. People can take cat naps with their eyes open without even being aware of it.

When one goes to sleep, His Brain Recharges; His sells repair themselves and His body releases important Hormones…

Anything less than five minutes to fall asleep at night means you’re sleep deprived.  The ideal is between 10 and 15 minutes, meaning you’re still tired enough to sleep deeply, but not so exhausted you feel sleepy by day.

Experts say one of the most alluring sleep distractions is the 24-hour accessibility of the internet.

Tiny luminous rays from a digital alarm clock can be enough to disrupt the sleep cycle even if you do not fully wake. The light turns off a “neural switch” in the brain, causing levels of a key sleep chemical to decline within minutes.

Some scientists believe we dream to fix experiences in long-term memory, that is, we dream about things worth remembering. Others think we dream about things worth forgetting – to eliminate overlapping memories that would otherwise clog up our brains.

We can only dream of what we know and of what we have already seen… Whether we actively remember it or not.

Over the recent years, Sleep is being highly neglected because of the busy and stressful schedules of day to day life… The science of sleep is a modern one – in fact most scientific information on sleep has been gained in the last 25 years… It has been proved that SLEEP IS VERY IMPORTANT for maintaining good health…

So, Better sleep well tonight…!!!
