Greetings Infomaniacs,

What is something that everyone loves to do but most of us don't do enough? SLEEP! It seems like with so much going on in life - work, school, family, social outings - that sleep often gets shoved aside.

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

On average, humans sleep three hours less than other primates. Chimps, rhesus monkeys, and baboons sleep ten hours per night.

***

When we sleep, we drift between rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep and non-REM sleep in alternating 90-minute cycles.

***

Elephants stand while they're dozing in non-REM sleep, but once REM sleep kicks in, they lie down. Ducks are constantly at risk of being attacked by predators, so they keep half their brain awake while they sleep.

***

Studies have shown that our bodies experience diminished capacity after we've been awake for 17 hours, and we behave as if we were legally drunk.

***

At least 10 percent of all people sleepwalk at least once in their lives, and men are more likely to sleepwalk than women.

***

During their first year, babies cause between 400 and 750 hours of lost sleep for parents.
