This week Chapter 4 focuses on the conscious mind and identifies various aspects of sleep. As we live and work in a society that is quickly passing us by, we strive to keep up and society seeks ways to do more in less time. Unfortunately we tend to sacrifice sleep as it seems to be the easiest solution to this challenge. This week discuss the following:
1. What is the circadian rhythm? Explain how it works, what it does, and its importance.
2. Society’s sleep reduction has created life threateniing results. Discuss one or more of these threats and be sure to include what society has done to counter this threat (ie. laws & technology).
