our bodies get into a cycle called the circadian rhythm, which is our daily activity cycle.
When it gets dark, the brain releases a chemical called melatonin, which makes us
drowsy. For babies, there is no set amount of sleep, as they are neither nocturnal nor
diurnal (if you are diurnal, you function best in the day; if you function best at night, you
are nocturnal). Babies usually sleep for 3 to 4 hours and then wake up, regardless of
whether its day or night. As the child gets older, it becomes accustomed to sleeping at
night. The average adult usually sleeps for 7 to 8 hours, although some people only sleep
for 5 hours and other people sleep for 10. What is really important is that you get a good
