It’s widely accepted that sleep is critical to a healthy brain. While we rest, the brain performs important tasks like consolidating memories and clearing toxins. Add stress to lack of sleep, and the brain really starts to stumble. A recently published study finds that sleep loss paired with acute stress negatively affects cognitive functions.
In everyday situations—parenting, exams, doctors on call—stress and short sleep often go hand in hand. Even politicians often have overnight meetings and resume talks after just a couple of hours of sleep, under very time-pressed and thereby presumably very stressful conditions.
The importance of sleep inspired the development of Silent Nights, one of LifeWave’s most popular patch products. With no drugs or pills to take, Silent Nights is clinically shown to increase length of sleep by 66 percent.
