Sleeping between six to nine hours every night is a restful and restorative activity for people of all ages.

That is also why you may have a difficult time falling asleep when the lights are left on at night.

Do you know what goes up and down without having to move? Something we have but rarely notice?


In the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, we are more often than not, simply attentive to details that we consider important or see as a priority.
