When people hear they word sleep the would probably think that it's a time of rest and quiet but actually there's a lot more to it.
Sleep is what we do to regenerate our energy. We have followed the ancient way of sleeping while the moon is out and being active while the sky is blue. Sleep would be in the top 10 for the most important thing in our life as without it we are more likely to lose memory easily and exclude ourselves from our normal daily activities and also become less aware of things which is very dangerous.
For everyone we all have a certain amount of sleep we need to gain.Babies need at least 10 - 12 hours of sleep with a nap for 3 - 5 hours. Why you may ask. Well as a newborn sleep actually helps them grow. It is also known to make us grow as well. For kids aged to 6 - 13 we need 9 to 11 hours of sleep as we are more active and need more energy. For Adults they need a shorter amount of time which is 7 to 9 hours.
We can sleep in different ways. For example we can have a light sleep also known as a nap and also a deep sleep which is what we do at night. The differences between a light sleep and a deep sleep is very easy to find out. In a light sleep we sometimes are still able to hear things while sleeping and also wake up faster than a deep sleep. A deep sleep is a longer sleep and a bit more important than the light sleep. A deep sleep is when we can’t feel or hear anything and has to be pushed a few times to be awaken.
Remember to get your sleep!
