The average person spends 1/3 of their life sleeping, and yet sleep remains one of the greatest human mysteries. Adequate sleep is as vital to our well being as air, food and water. Scientists believe that it plays a crucial role in our ability to learn, grow and process memories.
This video reveals the effects of sleep deprivation, as our host Kat Carney stays awake for 24 consecutive hours. Along the way we meet insomniacs, narcoleptics and sleepwalkers! We also learn valuable lessons for buying the right mattress, fighting Jet Lag, working the graveyard shift and making our nightly slumber the best it can be.
