Why do we automatically fall asleep?
Are there animals that do not sleep?
I don't automatically fall asleep...I don't know about you though. It takes me a while...
We fall asleep every night due primarily to our circadian rhythms and our stimulus response to darkness.
Sharks and other fish, as well as most marine animals don't sleep, as they need to keep water moving through their gills (or other oxygen processing structures) to breathe or come up to the surface to breathe periodically (think marine mammals like whales and dolphins).
Due to the natural clock in our brain which is thought to be regulated by pineal body/gland in our brain.About animals they do also sleep fish,birds,etc..... may be there sleeping times are different like owl sleep in the day .but i think all rest .
I don't think we fall asleep automatically. If our mind and body are in synch about it then, we are able to shut off ourselves from our surroundings and problems.
Because it's in our nature as well as it is natural, comes with the territory. Of course there are animals that don't sleep, it's their nature not to!
We have a conscious and sub-conscious mind and the conscious mind seems to need to shut down to defragment from time to time. It seems to be built in and relaxing the conscious mind seems to allow it to let go of control for a while.
There are definite changes in body chemistry that promote sleep... such as having a big meal and becoming sleepy.
I wish I could automatically fall asleep. That would be awesome. although I have no problem sleeping, I had to read first before I get sleepy enough to turn off the light. And even then, it will usually take a minute or two, sometimes more, to fall asleep. I'm not sure about animals.. I believe all animals sleep too.
Have a nice day,
