To Sleep Serenity
The Joy of Sleep
Sleep is a highly complex and sophisticated set of processes that gives us a physical repair and mental reboot every night of our lives. During the night we cycle through different stages: light sleep, deep sleep and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep.
During deep sleep our respiration and heart rate decreases. Our body is flushed with growth hormones to regenerate cells and repair muscle damage.
Sleep is key to our neurological and physical development and small changes to the amount and quality of sleep that we get can make a big difference to how we experience life. The same is also true for the things we choose to do during the day, this has a big impact on how we sleep. Making small changes to our thinking and behavioural patterns during the day can significantly improve our sleep.
There is not any cell, system or organ in your body that is not repaired by sleep overnight. During deep sleep, your body receives calming signals, to decrease blood pressure and prevent other physiological symptoms of stress.
During sleep, your brain sorts through your memories, clearing short-term memory storage, strengthening your ability to recall facts and memorise new information. Sleeping improves rational thinking and complex problem solving.
Sleep deprivation causes a 60% increase in emotional reactivity, anger and rage, and gives you a more negative outlook. When you are tired, you are less patient, less trusting of others and people even perceive you as looking sad.
