It’s no secret that a sleepless night spoils the mood, breaks the head and reduces efficiency. But what if you are in this state almost all the time? The specialist recalled that during the day, the product of the vital activity of neurons accumulates in the human brain. And if a person does not get enough sleep regularly, these substances accumulate.
The process of cleansing the brain from the product of the vital activity of neurons takes an average of 8 hours, said the somnologist of JSC “Medicine” (clinic of academician Roitberg) Maxim Novikov. This is just as much as doctors usually advise to sleep.
Lack of sleep leads to the accumulation of these harmful substances, which can contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease, which is associated with the accumulation of protein in the brain. By the way, lack of sleep also affects life expectancy.
“At night, the brain realizes and assimilates all the information that a person has received during the day. Insufficient rest leads to a decrease in attention and performance, ”added the somnologist.
Lack of rest leads to excessive irritability. Hence the mood worsens. In the end, everything can end even with depression.
So, everything is clear with lack of sleep, but stress is not as simple a problem as it might seem. After all, we can suffer not even from ordinary stress, but from passive, which is no less harmful. The Secret told how to recognize passive stress and how to get rid of it.
