You snooze, you win:
Why is sleep important?
Sleep hygiene
Routine: Sleep and wake

“People say, 'I'm going to sleep now,' as if it were nothing. But it's really a bizarre activity. 'For the next several hours, while the sun is gone, I'm going to become unconscious, temporarily losing command over everything I know and understand. When the sun returns, I will resume my life.' ”

-George Carlin,
Brain Droppings

Consumption: Food, drugs
