2. Sleep is a naturally recurring state characterized by reduced or absent consciousness,relatively suspended sensory activity, and inactivity of nearly all voluntary muscles.[1] It isdistinguished from quiet wakefulness by a decreased ability to react to stimuli, and ismore easily reversible than being in hibernation or a coma. Sleep is a heightened anabolicstate, accentuating the growth and rejuvenation of the immune, nervous, skeletal andmuscular systems. It is observed in all mammals, all birds, and many reptiles,amphibians, and fish.The purposes and mechanisms of sleep are only partially clear and are the subject ofintense research.[2] Sleep is often thought to help conserve energy,[3][4] but decreasesmetabolism only about 510%.[3][4] Hibernating animals need to sleep despite thehypometabolism seen in hibernation, and must return from hypothermia to euthermia inorder to sleep, making sleeping "energetically expensive."[5]Source Wikipedia 3. The sleeping problem that I am trying to solveSleep is one of the most important need of any human being. It is said that if a person does not sleepfor a week then he will die.This happens because insomnia (not getting sleep) causes our bodymechanism to slow down gradually. It is an evident fact that all body parts need rest or slowingdown. This much needed break is provided by sleeping. If we dont get ample sleep, then our bodyparts will not get sufficient rest and this will lead to several malfunctioning and eventual death.So it is very important for anybody and everybody to get a good amount of sleep. It is a necessityinstead of a luxury. 4. Harmful effects of not getting ample sleepIt is said that a stay normal , we need to have atleast 6-8 hours of sleep on a daily basis (minimum).Anythingless then this will lead to severe consequences likeGiddiness,Disorientation,Increased palpitation and heart beat,Anxiety among key ailments.Causes of inadequate sleepWe as team creativeEYE , intend to take one cause of inadequate sleep.We intend to take the aspect of our emotional baggage and our daily workaholic work culture as areason/cause for getting inadequate sleep.We have observed that no matter how healthy a person is (physically) , he will still be ill if his mind is not freeof negative thoughts or preoccupations. The same goes for sleep too.Sleep to us is a body process which requires ones mind to be at ease. it is only after one is at ease with hismind, that he can get good sleep. 5. Why did we choose this cause of sleeping disorder?We thought of reasons for mental disturbances and it came out prominently that theemotions and our daily work culture keeps our mind pre occupied. it doesnt let us be atpeace.So to us, the key reason for getting inadequate sleep is our current workaholic workculture which brings a lots of emotional baggage on our mind. 6. *Figures in red denote the numbers of ideas generated through abrainstorming tool 7. 1.Forgive yourself for every mistake youve evermade.2.Forgive others for their offenses against you.3.Stop obsessing over things you cant control.4.Take breaks often to clear you mind.5.Think positive.6.Stop over analyzing.7.Stop judging what others do or dont do.8.Learn to say no.9.Start thinking new things.10.
