Your Brain NEEDS Sleep!

Your Brain NEEDS Sleep!

Posted on May 11, 2022.

We all know how FANTASTIC it feels to get a solid night’s sleep, but why does it feel so good?! Because our brains are saying thank you! Our brain is the busiest organ, consuming as much as 25% of our overall energy (we see you, KETO//OS NAT®). When anything works to convert fuel into energy, waste is produced, the brain being no exception. Our brain takes sleep & relaxation time to clean house and get rid of waste accumulated over time! (#ketophagy) But that’s not all the brain benefits from when we sleep…

  1. Sleep boosts your mental health. Long-term sleep loss can increase stress, anxiety, and depressive moods. Hit the hay early for your mental well-being!
  2. It helps make your memory sharper. Ample amounts of sleep can help your brain stay sharper and boosts your power of recall. No more excuses for forgetting the grocery list!
  3. More sleep = better mood. A lack of sleep can make it hard for you to regulate your emotions; fairly neutral stress triggers, you would otherwise manage without anger, may feel more intense without enough sleep. The next time you’re feeling moody, take a nap and see what happens!
  4. Sleep aids in decision-making. Scientists found that a period of unconscious thought (aka sleep) can help aid better decision-making. Here’s a good reason to “sleep” on a big choice.
  5. It helps you focus on your everyday tasks. Studies show shuteye can help you remain sharp and alert throughout the course of your day, making your to-do list feel way more manageable than it would without sleep. Even naps can help boost your focus. Sleep also improves learning and problem-solving skills.

Sleep is a weapon, so use it!
