How to Get to Sleep

Brain Sleep Connection - Why Sleep Is Critical to Your Brain Health -  Johann Callaghan

 

The brain is arguably the most important organ in the human body and it uses more energy than any other organ in the body. In fact, it uses 20% of energy in your whole body.

Sleep is important to several brain functions, including how nerve cells (neurons) communicate with each other. Neurobiological processes that occur in the brain during sleep have a profound impact on brain health including mood and cognitive function. There are numerous studies that show changes in the brain during sleep have a big influence on brain health. Recent findings suggest that sleep plays a housekeeping role that removes toxins in your brain. Sleep can affect the capacity for new learning as well as strengthening and consolidating our memories.

Sleep is an important part of your daily routine and lifestyle. Unfortunately, in this modern world, many people are exceptionally busy and experience too much stress, having a deleterious impact on sleep. Find out how you may reduce your risk of neurogenerative brain diseases and have better brain health with better sleep in a 21st century stress epidemic world.
