Do Zombies Sleep

Do Zombies Sleep

Maybe it’s because it’s Halloween, or maybe it’s because I watch too many television shows and movies about zombies. I have been wondering lately if zombies sleep. People sleep, animals sleep, even bugs sleep. What about zombies? You might not think that zombies are real, but even the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has a website page dedicated to Zombie Preparedness. If the CDC writes about zombies, then they must be real (wink, wink).

A zombie can be described as the undead or in essence a corpse that has come back to life. Though I have seen “Zombieland”, “Warm Bodies” and I frequently watch “The Walking Dead”, I am far from calling myself a zombie expert. I don’t recall witnessing any zombies sleeping in any of these. Maybe the productions have a little more zombie knowledge than I do?

If someone is dead, you might think that they don’t need sleep. It seems that even when dead, the one organ in a zombie that still has some functionality is its brain. In previous Somniloquy blogs, you read how a person’s brain performs a myriad of functions while we sleep. Many of those functions, however, revolve around letting our bodies know that it is time to sleep. Does a zombie’s brain do this? I have witnessed zombies spending the majority of their time searching for humans to consume. To me, it looks as if their brains have only one thing to focus on, and that one thing is finding food.

In summation, I just don’t know if zombies sleep or not. It could be that they don't have the perfect pillow and best bedding. What do you think? COMMENT BELOW and tell us if you think that zombies do or don’t sleep, and remember to include why.

When you walk outside, you might be thinking that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” could easily have been written by Frank Loesser today. Most likely not in Florida, where Lavender & Chamomile is headquartered, but in other parts of the country. We know brisk nights have replaced those balmy and beautiful ones. As Autumn creeps along and we head towards Winter, the temperatures will take a dubious dip.
