Throughout history, there has been a progressive decrease in prioritizing sleep in our lives, coupled with an increased emphasis on efficiency and productivity in society.

Recent changes and ideas concerning sleep habits, as well as their effects, are addressed, in an effort to examine the overall purposes and benefits of a good night's rest.
