What is Sleep?

Human body releases chemicals in a daily rhythm, when your body releases a hormone called melatonin (Mel-ah-TONE-in). Melatonin signals your body that it’s time to prepare for sleep at that time you feel drowsy. In sleeping time the body and brain “shut off” for a few hours each night to rest in preparation for the next day. Sleep has two main phases—REM and non-REM. During sleep the body works to gently lower the heart rate, temperature, and breathing rate. The body becomes rest but the brain is active. We should take about to 6-7 hour sleep daily. But too much sleeping is not a good, if you are feeling so it may be the sign of insomnia, you must consult to Doctor.
