REM (Rapid Eye Movement) is a restorative sleep. It allows you to calm the brain and process the emotions and memories you made during the daytime. Usually, there are 5 to 7 cycles of REM Sleep in a normal night sleep of an average person. And, if alcohol functions in the body; the REM cycles reduces to just 1 or 2. This leads to grogginess and lethargic throughout the day.
