Sleep: Boost & Power Nap Your Brain!

Sleep to Boost Your Brain

A good night’s rest is one of the best brain boosts. It’s crucial for your brain to function properly. Sleep deprivation may negatively impact your cognitive function, your mood, your judgement and even your waistline. Isn’t that enough incentive to ensure you get adequate zzz’s?

Rapid Eye Movement (REM) is when we dream. 25% of our sleep is in the REM stage. Researchers believe that during REM, your brain selects the most important bits of information that it has processed throughout the day.

Deep or stage IV sleep is vital to brain function. As we get older, we are in less of this phase and it’s probably no coincidence that our cognitive skills change as well.

There’s still debate on how much rest we need, but on average, most people need 7 to 8 hours per night, some require less and others more.
