    Description: Even when we are sleeping, our brains are controlling our bodies, sometimes in odd ways that keep us from getting the rest we need. In other cases, we purposely deprive ourselves of sleep, in order to have time to finish our many duties at home, work or school. Whatever the cause of sleep deprivation, we have come to dread the grogginess, irritability, and poor concentration that accompany it. Some individuals have performed poorly when taking tests, have made mistakes at work, or even had severe accidents because of their inability to focus clearly. In order to avoid the potential negative effects of sleep deprivation, we must learn how to get the sleep we need.
