Beauty sleep

Do you know that we spend a third of our lives having no idea of what we are doing? It’s when we are sleeping. We don’t really understand why we sleep except that, if deprived of it for just ten days, we’d die. However, our sleep cycle is never complete until we get a dose of “Rapid Eye Movement” sleep, which means that we are dreaming. We need to sleep and we also need to dream, because without it there’s no rest of body and no refreshment of spirit. Dreaming boosts the immune system and promotes optimal functioning of our nervous, skeletal and muscular systems.
But the real secret to sound sleep is a life that is free from anxiety. That’s why the Bible says to people who have faith: ‘When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.’
