Sleep: An Undervalued Privilege in the Contemporary Lifestyle
Sleep is an essential part of our daily routine. We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. Quality sleep, which is of appropriate duration and at proper time, is equally fundamental to survival as food and water. Without sleep, our brain cannot form or maintain pathways for learning and creating new memories, and it becomes difficult to concentrate and respond quickly.
