Why do we sleep?

One function of sleep is to “restore” what is lost in the body while we are awake. Sleep provides an opportunity for the body to repair and rejuvenate itself. Many of the major restorative functions like muscle growth, tissue repair, protein synthesis, and growth hormone release occur mostly, or in some cases only, during sleep.

Enjoying quality sleep improves the quality of life.
 

What are the consequences of not getting enough quality sleep?

Sleep is the only activity that we are to spend roughly a third of our lives doing and it is the most important hours of life for health and wellbeing .  Sleep is not passive; it is a very active and necessary biological process to keep us healthy.
 
The most immediate effect of sleep deprivation is sleepiness, experienced as general fatigue; lack of motivation and reduced alertness.  Most people do not get enough sleep causing both short term and long term negative consequences.
