Our floodlit society has made sleep deprivation a lifestyle. But when our circadian rhythm breaks down, recent research has shown, we are at increased risk for illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and dementia.

"Everything we’ve learned about sleep has emphasized its importance to our mental and physical health. Our sleep-wake pattern is a central feature of human biology—an adaptation to life on a spinning planet, with its endless wheel of day and night. The 2017 Nobel Prize in medicine was awarded to three scientists who, in the 1980s and 1990s, identified the molecular clock inside our cells that aims to keep us in sync with the sun. When this circadian rhythm breaks down, recent research has shown, we are at increased risk for illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and dementia."

TY Evelyn for posting. I don't sleep, BUT Animae told me the importance of getting REM SLEEP!
OK a little sleepy ~ things always rush around in my pee brain!

Jellyfish sleep, the pulsing action of their bodies noticeably slowing, and one-celled organisms such as plankton and yeast display clear cycles of activity and rest. This implies that sleep is ancient and that its original and universal function is not about organizing memories or promoting learning but more about the preservation of life itself. It’s evidently natural law that a creature, no matter the size, cannot go full throttle 24 hours a day.

Interesting article and did not know that about the jellyfish and single cell organisms.

in the dc metro area, people brag about how little sleep they get. i try to explain that they need more sleep but they look at me as if i'm speaking gibberish.

I recently had heart surgery and ever since I came home my sleep pattern has been off. I really know how important it is to get a good nights sleep and hope I'll be able to get more with each passing day. Last night I got a whole 5 hours, yippeeeee. I never use to take naps when I was younger but I do now. Thanks.

God did not make sleeping at night just for dreams! But make it rest for the body and each member of the human needs to rest until it continues to work throughout the lifetime of man

Physical activities also have an effect on your sleep. Increased physical movement for the duration of the day is one true way to promote sleep at some point of the night time. But workout earlier than drowsing is by no means good. It energizes your body and will maintain you extra active. You have to ensure that your body is calm earlier than going to bed.
