sleep

 

 

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?

    • Buhut buhut  shukriya Ahmad! Namaz ki baad. thanks Ahmad. I shall pray magrib prayer then reply.   

  • Yeah, I don't know but yeah I really love to sleep a lot. Nowadays, as I am not working, I am sleeping for more than 10 hours and I am enjoying it. I feel sleeping is a blessing. The guys who don't get splendid sleep, they don't seem happy or satisfied. 

    • Main tum ku sahamat hoon, Harjot Singh! I agree with that. Sleep gives our body a charge of extra energy. We really feel like having new power in our bodies. By the way, I hope you get a good job soon. Until then keep those ten hours of sleep going on. Thanks, Harjot for your nice moment. 

  • Hi dara. Good quality sleep depends on the age bracket. Based on some articles teenagers needs at leat 8-10 hrs, young adults needs 7-9 hrs, and age >= 65 needs <=8 hrs. While middle age should sleep for at least 5-7 hrs at night. Some sleep for only 5 hrs but they are ok. When we sleep, our bodies try to repair and recover our energy and over-all health. When we say sleep, its a long quality sleep while naps, siestas and snoozes lasted for 5 mins to 30 mins only. Taking a nap is recommended too. As for me, i always sleep for 5-7 hrs.

    • Salamat Glosky! You have given me brief and useful information about sleep.  That is very kind od you. When we do not have anything to do, we sleep a lot. During the holy month of Ramadan, we sleep more than nine hours. It is because we are fasting and at the same time, we are on holiday. I will tell you one thing but do not tell the members of the club. I used to sleep ten hours when I was on my third honeymoon.  Thanks, Glosky for your nice tips. 

      • Hahahaha!!! Dara! You sleep 10hrs while in your honeymoon??? Gosh!

        • Hahaha, Glosky...it seems, Mr. Dara has given "sleeping" in the honeymoon an another sense...Hmmm...I think it was with an eye wink...LOL.

           

          • Aber vieso Rose iris? I did many things during my honeymoon. Thanks for the wink.

    • Magandang omaga Glosky! Nayon sa omaga. Hello, lovely lady. We are at dawn. I have just finished praying.  I shall reply later. I am happy  that you have  regular hours of sleep. Nevertheless, thanks for your nice and  wise comment. 

       

         

  • I believe that sleep is even more important than eat or drink water. Sometimes you can need to sleep eight hours or more, and other times sleeping six hours can be enough.

    When you sleep, you are able to breathe, to dream, to wape up and to sleep again. The thing is that nobody knows what happens when you pass away, isn't it?
