  • The Constantly Buzzing Brain

    There was once a time that people thought that when we sleep, our brains also shut down for the night, so that sleep was a sort of coma. Since that time, scientific study has proven otherwise, but that doesn’t mean that we still fully understand exactly what is going on when we fall asleep. To that point, a new study conducted by neurologist Dr. Josef Parvizi of Stanford University has shown that not only is the brain active during the time that we’re sleeping, but that the activity that is going on is specific and targeted. The finding is providing valuable information about the enormous amount of energy that the brain uses each night while we are sleeping.
    Dr. Parvizi says, “There is something that’s going on in a very structured manner during rest and during sleep, and that will, of course, require energy consumption.” Continue reading

  • Studying Primates Reveals the Value of Comfortable Beds

    If you ever find yourself wondering about just how big a difference a comfortable bed can make in your life, you might want to give consideration to a study that was recently conducted by anthropologist David Samson of Duke University and Robert Shumaker of Indiana University in Bloomington. The two colleagues set out to investigate exactly why some of our primate relatives sleep soundly through the night, while others sleep fitfully and restlessly. Continue reading

  • Athletes Should Pursue Extra Sleep For Optimal Performance

    Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a dedicated athlete who regularly devotes hours of time on practice, there’s no doubt that you’d like to improve your performance. Yet despite this universal wish, there is one thing that we can all do to give ourselves a boost, yet we generally fail to do – that magic bullet is getting enough sleep. Everybody is supposed to get at least seven to nine hours of sleep per night, yet somehow we all tend to choose sleep as the one thing that we’re willing to sacrifice in exchange for more time working, socializing, and yes, even working out. But it turns out that we may be doing ourselves more harm then good choosing stretching and strengthening over snoozing. Continue reading

  • Prioritizing Sleep Is A Top Stress Buster

    Stress is a normal part of life, and describes any kind of change that the body undergoes in reaction to outside events. The truth is that some stress can be good, keeping us alert and out of danger, but for the most part the term has come to have a negative connotation, and to be used as a description of a physical, mental or emotional reaction that causes harm. Stress can result in the creation of physical conditions such as headache, stomachache and cardiovascular problems, and when people turn to substances such as alcohol or tobacco in response to stress, these conditions can be exacerbated.

  • Understanding the Regenerative Qualities of Sleep

    Sleep is largely underrated. We tend to think of it as just another bodily need without truly appreciating the tremendous nourishment that our bodies and souls get from a good night of sleep. Even more important than a single night is the ability to consistently sleep well over the course of a lifetime, and much of that ability has to do with understanding exactly how much nourishment sleep provides, and appreciating the difference that it can make. By switching our understanding of sleep as some sort of obligation to recognizing it as doing something nurturing and strengthening, we change our entire perspective, and find ourselves looking forward to the gift that it provides us each night.
