From birth, we spend a third of our lives asleep. After decades of research, we’re still not sure why.
Waking Up to the Need for (Enough) Sleep
Many resign themselves to not getting enough sleep, while many others don't realize how much they need or what insufficient sleep does to the body and brain.

Sleep is a vital element of life, just like eating and breathing. Sleep allows your body to rest. During sleep, many necessary actions take place in your body. For example, your muscles and tissues grow and repair. Your brain is busy regulating hormones and storing memories. A lack of quality sleep interferes with the body’s natural functions and can even contribute to disease. A good night’s sleep is necessary for your body to recharge and revitalize so you can feel alert and productive the next day.
