More Evidence on the Value of Sleeping

A new study has just been described in Psych Central Newsletter that shows that sleeping — even a nap — refreshes your brain and makes it easier to learn new information. It also suggests that if you’re getting six hours a night or less, you’re missing out on a good deal of this refreshment.

This news is in addition to the research I’ve talked about previously in my Psychology Today blogs, that shows that sleep is necessary after you learn something to consolidate the memories and to appreciate links between your new knowledge and what you already know.

More evidence that taking care of yourself is better (and more ambitious!) than being a workaholic.
