Sleep is essential for the proper functioning of the human brain. Here we study how and when we should sleep. Cats may be involved because of their outstanding ability to sleep.

Know the mechanism of the human body

To properly understand why humans need sleep, one must be conversant with metabolism, BMR, Calorie intake, body types and beds. If you don’t know your BMR, it might not affect your sleep. Or if you have slipped up on your calorie intake, there may not be appreciable difference in your sleep (you probably would sleep longer). But if you do not know your bed…that is the end of the world. It is easy to get confused, there is the flower bed, the river bed, the bed of roses, the bed of thorns (used by Indian yogis and holy people) and there is the regular 6 X 4. First thing you have to learn when coding your way to sleep is this.

Need for sleep

There are many reasons to sleep.
a) To avoid being involved with visitors
b) To avoid doing your homework
c) To avoid facing the truth
d) To give mom more space when she works
e) To get cozy with the cat
f) To test out the new pillow
g) To become refreshed for the sleep next day
h) To help you remain awake when you eat
People debate about why man sleeps. Have you seen any heroes sleeping? They are always flying around rescuing damsels and helping people avert disasters…in your sleep. The moment you wake up, they are gone. That is one vital reason when you should sleep.

Find the best method to sleep

Scholastic approach
First thing you would probably need is a good memory. Remember your geography text, you will fall into a slumber. Think about the math lessons and you will begin to snore and if science should intrude in your thoughts, your mom will find it very difficult to wake you up the next day.

An experienced worker approach
Here you will find your skills extend beyond normal boundaries. When you have worked at the same job for years at an end, you develop some niches, have secret passageways and secluded spots where no one will disturb you (they are all occupying their own secret niches). However, developing this skill to perfection takes time. That is why they always ask you to specify the number of hours you sleep…er sorry, the number of years you have worked.

Advantages of sleep

a) It slows down brain function
b) It helps keep you warm and comfortable
c) It is the best way to spend the night
People raise cats in their houses for one purpose mainly. That is to find out how to sleep. The other reason is to find out why they chase rats. Sleep is universal and believe me, essential. To remain healthy you have to eat. If people stop eating for 20 days they die ( I have seen people trying to die en masse under religious pretenses), if you don’t drink water for 7 days you die (unless you are a camel) and if you don’t sleep for more than 5 days you die (or turn into a raving lunatic). Cats play it safe and sleep all the time – that is my theory.

Excellent work. I only sleep when my body tells me "No More". I am much too busy to just sleep my life away.

Sherri, when you get sleep you are able to work better. You have to sleep eight hours a day.

If you sleep you may dream of winning a lottery of millions of dollars.

Yes Rao sir, the only things we dream of are things beyond our reach. But that makes us happy.

I love the reasons for sleep, how about because the bed is warm and the outside is cold.

When someone steals your bed and your house you will realize the best solution is for you to sleep.

The music lulled me to sleep, Snerfu but your writing kept me awake! The poor can sleep anywhere but the rich may not despite the comforts. It also depends when the reality makes us seek refuge in sleep and dreams, but nightmares can hamper the process! siva

There is no reality in dreaming or nightmares. It is imaginary. The reality is when someone takes away something belonging to you -- that is when the nightmare begins.
Face the truth -- thievery is more common than nightmares.

Sleep puts a cover over all our troubles..stops us from going crazy and getting in to those troubles, keeps us cosy and gives us the perfect excuse to put up the DO NOT DISTURB sign...'go away visitors I'm asleep'...ha ha
Great post Snerfu

You hit it on the head Mariah. Among the many things God did for us sleep takes the cake, I guess. Thanks for the pat.
