Maybe not, but it sure can affect us in so many ways. Health and sleep go hand in hand and everyone knows what lack of sleep can do us for one night, but what about chronic sleeplessness.
Sometimes I look at my cats and think, “How can you fall asleep so easily in any situation?”, and I admit, I am jealous sometimes, but animals sleep out of necessity, it’s just how they are wired.
