Important Tips for a Healthier Sleep.

I guess we all know what sleep is. Even the ones who are deprived of a healthy sound sleep do have an obvious idea of what it is. Still if you need a medical sort of definition, then to brief up, “Sleep is a naturally recurring state of mind and body, characterized by altered consciousness, relatively inhabited sensory activity, inhibition of nearly all voluntary muscles, and reduced interactions with surroundings. It is distinguished from wakefulness by a decreased ability to react to stimuli, but is more easily reversed than the state of being comatose.”
