Here’s a way to cure those restless nights–stop sleeping!
There just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. If there was a DISEASE that robbed us of one-third of our lives, we’d invent a medicine to cure it!
We don’t really understand why we sleep in the first place. Different species vary widely in their hours of sleep. Herbivores sleep far less than carnivores (because they have less onerous foods to digest?) Elephants sleep about four hours a night, compared with almost 20 hours for a lion. Humans are omnivores, so our sleep habits fall somewhere in the middle.
