Sleep is essential for basic survival as well as for optimal physical and cognitive performance in both human beings and animals.
Sleep is a normal human function that is detrimental to sustaining life yet; individuals are affected differently by their sleep schedule.
However, the community at large often underestimates sleep and its importance, therefore leading people to not be as concerned
with a proper night’s sleep, thereby preventing them from performing at peak efficiency. Sleep plays a vital role in learning and when
a person fails to obtain enough sleep the night prior, neurons in the brain might not fire properly, the body becomes out of synch, and
it can even lead to accidental physical injuries. As many studies have been conducted, the majority have seemed to come to similar
conclusions: a lack of sleep can have detrimental side effects on the human mind and body and by regularly obtaining enough sleep
each night; a person can function more efficiently.
