Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I know this isn't related to PMC, but I came up with this wonderful idea about "Sleeping." I hope you enjoy reading my blog about why you need sleep, and why you shouldn't ignore it, as you can tell from the title.

Why do we sleep?
We work during the day, and at night, we go off to sleep in order to recuperate for the next day. Sleeping is very essential for health, physical and mental growth of a child, and adults also need plenty of it to keep in good shape, and health. Sleep, as scientists say, gives your brain an chance to sort things out, such as information, replaces chemicals, and solves problems. The body regenerates after a good night's sleep. It's like giving your body an mini-vacation although it will just last for 9-10 hours.

However, there are times when someone is unable to sleep because of stress, and depression. According to a research, it has been said that teenagers are the ones that don't get a good amount of sleep for different reasons. Now that's interesting to look at, as teenagers suffer the most from Homework, frequent tests, and quizzes. But that's not all. Adults suffer as much as teenagers. Adults work daily and return home late. They sleep the least, and wake up early in the morning to work again. That's why adults are sometimes unhappy, and moody at the time.

Effects of not sleeping too well:
1) We are listless and tired, thus not having enough strength to do anything.
2) Our thought process also get affected.
3) Less sleep can even affect our performance levels, memory functioning, and decision-making process.
4) Usually, lack of sleep causes much stress, which can affect the body functioning.
5) Our health can be affected. We can easily develop cardio-vascular diseases including Heart Attacks, Strokes, etc.
6) We become moody, and appear to not be friendly. In Addition, you don't want to talk to anybody, or just insult someone, since you're in a bad mood.
7) We may not be able to drive properly if we're not mentally alert. Adequate sleep means that you can concentrate better.
8) People who don't sleep very well suffer from sleep disorder are faced with problems, such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, and High Blood Pressure.

How much sleep someone needs:
It has been usually said that an average school going kid and teen need about 9 hours of sleep, whereas children in pre-school need approximately around 10-12 hours a day of sleep, and a new born requires about 16-18 hours of sleep. Plus, adults need 7-8 hours of sleep to feel fully rested.

Attitude towards sleep:
Many people tend to sleep less hours as they were either playing computer, watching television, working at the office, or simply spending time with his/her friends. They prefer to sleep late at night, although they have to wake up early in the morning tomorrow for work. This reduces their sleeping hours. If they continue to do this over a certain period of time, then their health will seriously be a problem.

In Addition, There are also underlying psychological factors which make a person sleep less unfortunately. Many people suffer from diseases including insomnia and various sleep disorders like sleep apnea and chronic sleep deprivation. And then, they don't get sufficient sleep.

How the problem can be tackled:
1) Try relaxing before going to sleep such as listening to music, or reading a book.
2) Having a bath before bed can be helpful and relaxing at the same time.
3) Exercise can mostly help a person to sleep well.
4) Get rid of your fears, tensions, or worries.
5) Try and maintain a schedule of your sleeping hours. Go to bed at a particular time and get up at a particular time as well.
6) Last Step: Consult a physician if there are any underlying problems.
