Having sound mental health means that your ‘mental hygiene’ is intact.
How then can we clean up our brains?
A good night’s sleep can certainly leave you feeling refreshed, but getting regular sleep is actually critical to having a healthy brain as well as a healthy mind.
This explains why some city dwellers are called crazy. Well, ‘it’s not their fault’. How do they sleep?
Another important benefits of sleep is from research which has shown that sleep-deprived people handle stress less effectively and that chronic lack of sleep might even contribute to obesity.
One study even found that sleep deprivation might even result in serious and lasting brain damage, killing off cells in important regions of the brain. So if you are trying to refresh your brain, start by getting a good night’s rest.
