Sleep is important, as we all know. We need sleep to feel energised the next day and to help our bodies repair and recover.
Sleep is also important for brain health.
In this article, (posted on wired.com) the statement “Sleep is actually a very distinct function” resonated with me strongly. I remember when I was recovering from my stroke that I needed plenty of sleep. I understood sleep was important to enable my damaged brain learn to cope and start rerouting signals around the damaged area. I embraced sleep and accepted its purpose.
It has also been suggested that people who have long term sleeping problems are more at risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other brain based diseases.
