Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.

Sleep is a naturally recurring state of mind characterised by altered consciousness, relatively inhibited sensory activity, inhibition of nearly all voluntary muscles and reduced interactions with surroundings.

During sleep, most systems are in an anabolic state, building up the immune, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems. Sleep patterns vary widely among different individual humans.

Sleep deprivation tends to cause slower brain waves in the frontal cortex, shortened attention span, higher anxiety, impaired memory, and a grouchy mood. A well-rested person tends to have improved memory and mood.

Studies have shown that sleep difficulties are closely associated with psychiatric disorders such as depression, alcoholism, and bipolar disorder. A sleep disorder is a medical disorder of the sleep patterns of a person and a sleep clinic can diagnose a particular sleep disorder.
