Resting Your Brain-Week 3

Did you know that sleep plays a critical role in brain health and memory function?



  1. Adequate and good quality nightly sleep are essential for learning and memory.

  2. Being sleep deprived reduces our ability to learn and recall. Inadequate sleep also increases the risk of stroke. Sleeping 7 to 8 hours is associated with a lower risk of memory disorders and stroke and an essential element in promoting brain health.

  3. Lack of adequate nightly sleep affects our mood, motivation, judgement and perception of events. Beauty rest is also good for the brain.

  4. If you’re having difficulty with sleep, try these 3 simple guidelines:

  • Get up at the same time each morning

  • Engage in at least 30 minutes of exercise during the day

  • Avoid stimulants and alcohol
