The sleep
#1
I was wondering what does a sleep mean from the point of view of modern science? What does it give to the brain?
Maybe this is some kind of brain test, like for hard disk. I mean like memory defragmentation etc. Let's suppose the sleep is a system test, including audio/video, in the result of which appears the dream...

sleep is a periodic state of physiological rest during which consciousness is suspended and metabolic rate is decreased

I noticed that if I sleep more than 12 hours, I feel tired all day long. That's why avoid this.

Be careful Peter. This way you could damage your daily living regime. You see, the human body is used to a certain regime, and when he breaks it, he suffers physically.

Yep, correct as too much of sleeping time will only drag down your body energy and you're become more vulnerable to the viruses that surround you...

Therefore, try not to sleep over 12 hours each day. Wink

12 hours is a lot. 7-8 hours is perfect for our body, and preferably the hours of sleep should be 23 pm - 7 am

Sleep is a very important activity in a person's day-to-day life. When we are asleep an important hormone called Melatonin. This hormone is a very important resource of energy for us during all day long.

In this cases, I will agree with Peter's thought.

Do you know that the liver starts the detoxification process in 11 pm to 1 am everyday? This means, we should going to bed before 11pm...

Generally, the human body must be integrated with the nature and feel how much to sleep. It is good to wake up together with the sunrise.
If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

Benn has a very good point here. The human body is like a huge biological clock. Every organ does its second job while we are slipping at different times of the night but in a very strict consequence. When this order is mixed, we don't feel that good during the day time.

The world record on the longest sleep is 18 days, 21 hours and 40 minutes.
People can sleep with opened eyes.
If 5 minutes is sufficient for you to fall asleep, then you obviously suffer from slee shortage. The ideal interval is 10 to 15 minutes.
Parents lose about 700 hours of sleep because of their first child
The best way not to sleep is surfing the net.
Snore appears only when the human is deeply fallen asleep
Your body cools when you sleep
A little noise during the first and the last two hours of sleep can easily wake you up

Did you know that people who wanna get slimmer must sleep more, not less than 8-9 hours. Otherwise, the food that we eat in the daytime will recompense the lack of sleep. So, who sleeps less that eats more Big Grin

Sleep helps solving problems. Scientists proved, nap improves creativity. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have tested whether sleep can provide ideas for solving a problem and found that this is true, especially in the phase of sleep called REM (rapid eye movement). According to researchers, REM sleep phase improves creativity by about 40%.

According to specialists irritability and low mood are the first indications of the fact that a person does not sleep enough. This irritability is likely to be followed by such effects as: apathy, slow speech, slow reactions to stimuli, reduced memory and inability to be spontaneous or to do several things at once.

Go to bed every day (even on weekends) at the same time in order to avoid restless sleep.
This compliance of time will help the body to meet the biological rhythmrhythm that regulates your sleep and keep you in normal condition.
