Sleep is an essential component of human life. This is the time when the body rests after a period of hard work in order to rebuild its vigor, as it is generally considered to be planned by the Maker.
The majority of the time, this rest is scheduled for the evening; but, due to certain lifestyle choices and work schedules, sleep hours are shifted.
People who are stressed are more likely to want to sleep, and politicians and high-ranking officials have been the biggest offenders. Almost everyone is deprived of excellent sleep as a result of the task intended for execution. As a result, they are forced to sleep during critical state assignments or public events.
