Sleep is a wonderful thing and it’s a shame you didn’t truly appreciate the gift of nap time when you were younger. Now, as an adult, sleep is one of the most treasured commodities around. Whether you’re a parent with a cranky newborn or you just aren’t a morning person, bedtime is often most people’s favorite time of day. Why do people love sleep so much? Well, it’s restful, reparative, and can even let you dream. But what about all the weird things you do while you’re asleep? I’m not just talking about the occasional sleep-walk to the fridge for a midnight snack, either.
