Is Sleeping just a Waste of Time?
Many people view normal sleeping for, say 8 hours daily, as mere waste of time. Spending the whole night at computer and sending messages across social media sites that has little work value does not appear a waste of time at all to them!!
Proper sleeping is vital, it aids our physical & mental body & energy to rest, enabling repair, regeneration, & possibly, defrags are mind thoughts ready for our waking hours.
Sleeping is a must. It's how your body recovers and grows(if you workout).
However 5 hours of sleep is actually enough, and there's techniques where you could actually be well rested with only 2 hours of sleep every day.
Some would say living is a waste of time. Sleeping is an important part of living, which is a collection of a few utilized moments, and a whole lot more wasted moments.
No way, sleeping is really essential........try not sleeping for 2 days and you'll be roaming around like a lifeless ghost!
Sleep is of course not a waste of time but an essential behavior. Sleep is important in many aspects to the human body. It is when the things we come across and learn in day to day life are organized and stored. This is said to be formation of new connections (known as synapses) between neurons in the brain. So, depreviation of sleep leads to poor memory. That is the reason why neonates and infants tend to sleep majority of the time of the day as they learn a huge load of information in a very short period of time. (This is especially important for students - primary, college or university - to sleep for at least 4-6 hours a day in order to remember the facts they learn more efficiently).
Additionally sleep is the time when growth occurs and the biological processes have a rest and recover from minor damages which had occurred during the day time when the body is active. Hormones, like growth hormone which is essential for growth, are secreted mainly during sleep. Also the immunity tend to drop with sleep deprivation.
So, in terms of medicine and human biology sleeping for at least 4-6 hours is a must!!
No I do not think that sleeping is a waste of time. Sometimes if you sleep you are able to work and live better lives. I think that over sleep can be a waste of time but not normal 8 hours of sleep daily.
I often used to think that sleeping a lot makes the body bulky and disrupts your entire day schedule. However I was amazed to find out its benefits.
If a person sleeps about 8 hours daily then he is totally fit and healthy person. As sleeping anything less than this increases the production of ghrelin, a hormone that initiates hunger, in the body. The consequence is that it makes you to eat more and you will automatically become fat. The fatter you are the harder it becomes for the heart to pum read more
