Good Sleep Can Improve Concentration and Productivity – Study
A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for your health.
In fact, it’s just as important as eating healthy and exercising.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot that can interfere with natural sleep patterns.
People are now sleeping less than they did in the past, and sleep quality has decreased as well.
Sleep is important for various aspects of brain function.
This includes cognition, concentration, productivity, and performance.
All of these are negatively affected by sleep deprivation.
A study on medical interns provides a good example.
Interns on a traditional schedule with extended work hours of more than 24 hours made 36% more serious medical errors than interns on a schedule that allowed more sleep.
Another study found that short sleep can negatively impact some aspects of brain function to a similar degree as alcohol intoxication.
On the other hand, good sleep has been shown to improve problem-solving skills and enhance memory performance of both children and adults.
Good sleep can maximize problem-solving skills and enhance memory. Poor sleep has been shown to impair brain function.
Along with nutrition and exercise, good sleep is one of the pillars of health.
You simply cannot achieve optimal health without taking care of your sleep.
