More than ever, our sleep is disrupted. Now, inside our *connected* homes, with our multiple digital devices automatically connected to the internet, we seem to have the tendency to check updates and news. As a result, when we think we are already in bed resting, our brains are actually still working… in fact actively working.
The effects, over time, are dangerous to our overall health:
- Less than 5 hours of sleep disables our glial cells to clean up the toxins that our neurons produce.
- Majority of people rely on sleep to recuperate and without 7-9 hours of sleep people lose ability to think through problems.
- Loss of focus, attention.
- Impaired memory.
- Insulin is affected and you gain weight.
