What is Sleep?
Sleep is a state of rest that living things perform in order to gain energy to perform their daily activities. Therefore, all living things need sleep. Not getting enough sleep is harmful: it causes distraction, forgetfulness and irritability. Likewise, fatigue and dizziness can be felt if too much sleep is taken. Sleep is linked to a person’s mood. Therefore, the reason for oversleeping or little sleep may be psychological.
