Whatever your age, if you haven’t realized by this point in life that sleep or lack thereof affects your brain, this study is about to school you. A new study shows us that when we run on a deficit of sleep, our daily rhythm is ‘off beat’. This impairs our mood and cognition.
Even though the study was conducted with participants from the UK it’s quite universally apparent that sleep affects every human being no matter where they live on Earth. Can we agree on that fact? It’s not up for debate, actually. Navy SEALs undergo sleep deprivation in training. See what I mean?
If you were a hunter, your reaction time is impaired. If you work in a group setting, your mood is impaired. If you write for a living, chances are it’s not nearly as good as it could be if you were running on full brain power.
Every cell in our body has a clock. It’s definitely an intangible one deemed the biological clock. When the clocks are out of rhythm – things don’t work seamlessly and the body knows it. The brain condemns it and exhibits it in a disorderly and discordant fashion.
Imagine your body is a clock shop. You’ve heard that clocks in a clock shop ultimately will vibe in sync with one another, right? The human body works the same. And when the cell clocks are deranged, this study shows that itgives rise to mood disorders.
Knowing that these studies show a lack of sleep and a derangement in cell clock rhythms is dangerous to the body – what can we do? Embrace the sandman by a sound machine. Get your rest!
