Sleep Deprived? You’re messing with your Brain and mental health



Here’s some new Sleep Health STUFF you really need to know.

Simple Enough: Poor Sleep equal Poor Mental and Brain Health

The background: Scientists are, essentially, telling us that the damage to your brain that occurs from NOT sleeping enough IS REAL.

What’s next: I’m going to give you some common sense tips that you already know about!

The Doctor’s Expert Insights:

The big picture here: You don’t want to get yourself into a position where you’re sleep deprived. When you’re sleep deprived, your ability to do well on cognitive function tests go down. This means your brain isn’t working as well.

This is what you need to know: We really need to try to decrease our levels of sleep deprivation.

Just like everything else in life, moderation seems to be the key, even when it comes to our Sleep Health. You want to make sure that we aren’t sleeping too much because that, too, can be a sign of poor mental & brain health.

Take Home Message: Please try to sleep 6 or 7 hours a night, keep yourself hydrated, try to sleep well, and your brain will thank you for it!
