Why We Sleep

The power of getting quality sleep

sleepIf you think that it’s simply getting the recommended eight to ten hours of sleep then you’re only partially right. There is no “one size fits all” formula for the “right amount of sleep” because everyone has different needs.

8 hrs sleep is optimal bt the earlier u go 2 bed, more rejuvenated u’ll feel (sms)

One thing that is consistent are the symptoms of your failure to achieve the required amount of quality sleep.These symptoms are:

  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Loss of creativity
  • Lack of motivation
  • Lack of energy
  • Loss of concentration
  • Reduction in social activities
  • Slurred speech

There can be more dangerous symptoms as well including possible heart disease, stroke, and delusional behaviour which may lead to self-inflicted injury. A lack of sleep is also a major contributor to motor vehicle and on-the-job accidents. In fact, recent studies show that between 200,000 to 400,000 automobile accidents each year are the result of drivers falling asleep behind the wheel. Another study states that almost $70 billion is lost by businesses annually due to lost productivity, increased accidents, and increased insurance costs from sleep-related incidents.

Each person is driven by their own internal clock which is called the “Circadian Cycle”. This clock is responsible for sending signals to the brain telling you when it is time to sleep, wake up, and eat. When we ignore this clock our body is affected by the disruption of its natural rhythm cycles. These cycles are somewhat different for every one of us and, thus, we all have our own natural definitions of what constitutes quality sleep.

You can easily tell what time it is “set” to by performing this simple experiment:


Keep the same wakeup time every day but change your bedtime throughout a two week cycle. Keep a chart of how you feel each day. Are you more energetic on the days where you received an extra hour or so, or are you more groggy? After two weeks or less you will know exactly how many hours of sleep you need, under normal circumstances, to qualify as quality sleep.
