Sleep is the mode of relaxation thus offering rest to body and mind!! Sound sleep of about 8 hours is needed for being healthy physically and mentally. Certain changes happen in the brain when we sleep, sound sleep enhances good health and poor sleep affects our overall well-being in multiple ways
Poor sleep affects our ability to learn – reduces our learning ability is known fact but how it impacts our health was not clearly understood! A recent study has shown how our learning ability is affected and here is the brief of the same
During an episode of poor sleep, the synapses do not rest! During day hours, synapses get excited as a response to the stimuli that surround us. During sleep, the synapses rest or normalize, if there are no resting periods, the synapses remain excited for longer hours inhibiting neuroplasticity thus reducing the ability to learn!!
Thus the unrestful state of synapses is the reason behind impaired ability to learn!
This was the first study which revealed the reason behind impaired ability to learn and is accepted worldwide!!
If you are planning to have a fruitful day at work, then make sure you have a sound sleep!!
