Humans need sleep so that the body can recover from the stress, the tiredness. Organs, muscles, the brain need to rest, and the only way to rest completely is by sleeping. Is is a time to set your mind free, to recover cells, to gain strength for the next day!

== == Every living creature in this world needs to rest. Cat's, dogs, little babies, elephants and so much more. Just like eating. Sleep is necessary for survival. It gives our body a rest and allows it to prepare for the next day. It's like giving our body a mini-vacation. According to some scientist sleep is the time when our brain sorts and stores information, replaces chemicals, and solves problems.
