    Sleeping is a necessary activity....

    Is this sentence correct??

    " Sleeping is a necessary activity for all people to have enough energy and concentration for the following day."

    Thanks so much and sorry to bother you.

    "[Don't leave a space here]Sleeping is a necessary activity for all people to have enough energy and concentration for the following day." Sleeping is not an activity. Say 'Sleep is necessary....'

    Thanks so much and sorry to bother you. Unnecessary. We are here to be bothered.

    Hmm, in that case, I'll have to think of a new favourite activity.
    I agree with your correction though.
