Although a person sleeping might appear as ‘inactive’, some parts of our bodies and brains are more functional during sleep than when we are conscious.
Our brain, eyes, and body for example, stay remarkably active while we sleep.
Nothing beats a good night’s sleep, some of us may fall asleep with no trouble, while others may have difficulty doing so. We can imagine just how frustrating that becomes in the long term.
Sleep deprivation can cause many negative effects, such as body soreness, weak memory consolidation, moodiness and can even deplete an individual’s immune system, leading them to be more prone to sickness.
