Then you know how tired lack of sleep can make you feel. And you know how refreshed you wake up from a good night's sleep. From this it seems clear that sleep is necessary to the body to restore the tired organs and tissues of the body. But just how does this tiredness make us feel a need to sleep? Science still does not have a good, complete explanation. JHere is one theory. There is a sleep center in the brain that is regulated by the blood. In the course of the day, certain chemicals and calcium pass into the blood as the result of our activities. The sleep center becomes "sensitized" by some of these substances, and when the calcium appears it makes the sleep center go to work. What the sleep center then does is block off part of our brain so that we lose our will and consciousness. Certain nerves are blocked off too, so that our organs and limbs fall asleep. This doesn't mean that all activity inside the body stops. The circulation of the blood goes on of course, although the heart beats more slowly. Our breathing becomes slower and less deep. Digestion goes on without any change. The liver and the kidneys continue working, though at a slightly lower pace. The body temperature drops (sometimes as much as one degree). And we may perspire a bit more during sleep. We are constantly being told that we need eight hours of sleep. This is true for most people and especially for young people who are very active and growing. But strangely ' enough, there are many people who need very little sleep and seem able to function quite well, while others need a "long" sleep to be at their best. For example, two of the world greatest philosophers, Schopen- hauer and Kant, were "long" sleepers. Alexander the Great was a "short" sleeper. A good general principle is t sleep as long as you have to in order to feel happy and be able to work at your best when you wake up! * # # * PUN TIME The Chuckle Box Visitor: Well Emily, what are you going to do when you grow up to be a big lady like your Mommy?
