Abstract

IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP IN MAINTAINING A HEALTHY LIFE- A REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Dr. Wandaka Evalyn G. Lamare* and Dr. D. L. Shinde

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda had defined Ayu (life) as the complete integrated relation of body, sense, mind and the soul. Health is the state of equilibrium of doshas, normal functioning of dhatus and malas along with the wellbeing of mind and unimpaired (tranquil) senses and cheerful soul. Sleep is important because it affects our mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Sleep is a period of rest for the body and mind, during which volition and consciousness are in partial or complete abeyance and bodily functions are partially suspended. It is also described as a behavioral state with characteristic immobile posture and diminished but readily reversible sensitivity to external stimuli. Sleep is essential for normal, healthy functioning of the human body. Sleep was born at the time of commencement of the creation of the universe only, out of tamas. Sleep is another form of tamas and manifests due to the predominance of tamas generally at night. Thus, highlighting the importance of sleep for a healthy life is necessary in today‟s era.

Keywords: Sleep, Nidra, Manas, tama, satva.
