Why sleep is important?

Sleep is one of the most important components of life, well-being and longevity. Today we know that sleep improves learning ability, memory and logical reasoning. It modifies emotions, renews the immune system, fine-tunes metabolism and regulates appetite. Dreams create a virtual reality, where the brain merges the knowledge of the present into the old and mobilizes the forces of creativity

Average night’s sleep is eight hours (ie one third of a day), so a human sleeps about a third of his life. Sleep is not just the opposite of being awake, but the time when the mind, the brain and the body are alternately active and passive. Sleep is important for both physical and mental recovery. The body of a tired person needs to rest in order to fill the energy reserves. Sleep has a revitalizing effect, as the body rejects diseases and infections during sleep.

The mind and thoughts also need sleep so that they can rest from the day’s work. Even though we sleep and let go of everyday stressful thoughts, our brain continues to function during sleep. The brain sorts information about what has happened and what has been learned, which is transferred from short-term memory to long-term memory. During sleep, problems are solved and emotions dealt with without being aware of it. One old proverb says ”the morning is wiser than the evening”.
