The Many Benefits of Restful Sleep
by Michael Rupkalvis
clinical observation have shown that regularly getting a good night's sleep reduces
and prevents depression. The brain does not quit working, even while we're sleeping
- it just works on a different level. In the sleep mode, the brain works out problems
and makes new connections that it is too distracted and busy to do in the waking
state. A number of problems find resolution while you are sleeping. But an insufficient
amount of sleep, if not properly treated, may lead to depression.
It is also shocking how many people these days don't seem to make the common
sense connection between restful sleep and daytime energy levels. While you are
sleeping, your brain relaxes so that it can form connections and integrate new

respiratory and cardiac processes - will operate more efficiently due to the entire
brain functioning better and should result in a person being less susceptible to
Furthermore, studies have proven that in people who get plenty of sleep, their body's
cells are regenerated and refreshed at a quicker rate. All the functions of the
subconscious brain becomes rejuvenated while we sleep.
When people get the proper amount sleep needed for their body, they will find that
not only do they experience health benefits, but also they feel at peace, happier, and
more physically attractive.
So why don't a lot more people enjoy these benefits of sleep? Part of the reason is
because we, as a society, don't really value sleep. Our cultural attitude tells us to "go,
