2) Laundry Time: Your Brain Washes Itself When You Sleep
When you sleep, your brain washes itself of toxins– something it doesn’t do so well when you’re still awake. You truly need your sleep to clear your mind.
3) You Need Sleep For a Good Memory
Getting enough sleep signals changes in the brain that can improve your memory.
4) It Helps You Live Longer
5) It Helps Prevent Disease
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting enough sleep is essential for good health. This makes sense as not getting enough rest can increase inflammation in the body.
6) It Can Increase Your Creativity
It can be difficult to come up with that unique idea at the end of a long day, but sleep on it, and you’re likely to think of something. That’s because sleep can increase your creativity, allowing your brain to go further in its thoughts.
