* Sleep occupies nearly a third of our lives, but many of us give little attention to it.

* Multiple studies show that people who sleep less are more likely to be overweight or obese. Researchers believe that this is mostly due to hormonal changes caused by sleep deprivation.

* Not getting enough sleep can stimulate your appetite and increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and various types of cancer.
* Sleep is not a lost time or just a rest from the hard day work.

* It is an important function during which our body restores and balances all the vital systems.

* During the sleep, our body regulates respiration, circulation and everything from growth to the immune responses.

* Sleep is also crucial for our brain. It improves our memory and prohibits a memory lost when we age.

* People who sleep less tend to develop symptoms of depression, lower self-esteem, and anxiety.

* Sleep deprivation is also affecting our mood, cognitive abilities and our motor function.

*Poor sleep is also associated with episodes of migraines and other kinds of headaches.
