Sleep is the time when your body rests and repairs itself. Without good sleep our bodies do not repair and we start to experience more disease and more pain. It is during sleep that our breathing, heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature all reduce. It is also when we stabilize blood sugars and change our metabolism, this prevents weight gain.
