Sleeping more than eight hours a day is good for the health, or is it bad? Sleep is like death.  Our eyes are closed, our nervous system is inactive. Our muscles... even our consciousness is not available. It is comparable to death, or am I mistaken? 

What happens when we sleep? Is there any difference between sleep, naps, dozes, siestas, or snoozes? Can we stay without sleep for more than twenty-four hours?

  • It depends on the age. When people grow older, they sleep less. Children need more sleep compare to adult.

    Sleep isn't 100% like death, we're still breathing during sleep, the brain also does involuntary function, digestion is also working. Moreover, no one knows what death like as none in this life experience it. However, many say sleep is the cousin of death.

  • Sleep is important for physical and mental health. Improves immunity, attention and concentration. The ideal is 7 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Studies reveal that persistent sleep after 11 hours a day may be a sign of a sleep disorder or pathological symptom.
