Dreaming of Sleep

SLEEP.  It's the time for your body to heal, refresh, and rebuild, and it can seem, at times, almost impossible to achieve, leaving us feeling like the horribly rest-deprived girl in the featured Monica Ray comic strip.  But it doesn't have to be this way, and it definitely shouldn't.  As someone who grinds their teeth (yay for night guards) and has suffered several nights in a row of nightmares at a time (falling elevators, zombie outbreaks, public humiliation, etc.), I know that it's hard to get the coveted eight hours in, and, while the all-nighter may sometimes be necessary (term reports call for drastic measures!), check out a few of the things that sleep does to help you.  Knowing all its benefits may make you reconsider being nocturnal all those times that you don't actually have to be. After all, late-night TV shows have the benefit of reruns.  Your health?  Not so much.
