People sleep less than before in many countries? Why do people sleep less? What effect does it have on an individual and on society?

    Sleep is a very vital part of human existence without which we cannot function optimally. Experts say that human adults need at least seven hours of sleep per night to live well. Nowadays, people sleep less because they need to cater for themselves and their families and
also
to pursue their dreams of a better life. As an individual, the effect of reduced sleep on our bodies is not only an increase in the likelihood of developing diseases that can cause significant morbidity and mortality but
also
the propensity to make mistakes. On the society at large, it reduces efficiency and productivity.   Since the dawn of industrialization, mankind has worked more and slept less. Quite a number of reasons account for
this but

work in order to get by. He or she might find it difficult to log in the required seven hours of sleep at night. Even as the world is becoming more technologically advanced, people are losing sleep to put food on the table.   Lack of sleep has deleterious effects both individually and collectively. Experts have shown that diminished sleep can significantly affect cognition which can lead to mishaps, some of which can be fatal.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
