Lack of good sleep affects memory, focus and concentration

There are a number of things that are important, so you should know about the importance of a good night’s sleep. When you don’t get a good night’s sleep, memory, focus and our concentration are affected.

In this article we take you along and explain why a good night’s sleep is so important. In addition, we also explain how you ensure that you can achieve a good night’s sleep for your body and mind.

 

New Australian Study

 

In a recent study, scientists at the University of Sydney investigated how “bad” sleep affects the ability to focus and concentrate. This research was carried out with two test groups. One group consisted of 23 persons with chronic insomnia and the control group consisted of 23 persons without sleeping problems.

During the study, participants were asked to spend the night in a sleep lab and were given an attention test after their night’s sleep.

Unsurprisingly, those who got the best sleep also fared better on the test. Those individuals struggling with chronic insomnia found it more challenging to be able to focus on the task at hand.

 

Mental capacities

 

Besides the fact that you get physically tired from poor sleep, your mental condition also suffers. A person who sleeps poorly could react less well, which could lead to dangerous situations during the drive to and from work.

If you’re constantly not getting a good night’s sleep, focus and concentration aren’t the only things that can suffer. Other studies have shown that sleep deprivation can also affect your learning ability. In addition, missing a good night’s sleep can affect your ability to create new memories and recall the old ones.

 

How can you recognize poor sleep and therefore sleep deprivation?

 

It should come as no surprise that one of the symptoms of sleep deprivation is the fact that you are sleepy during the day when you should be alert and energetic. In addition, there are a number of other symptoms. Low energy levels, bad decisions and changes in mood are common with sleep deprivation.

 

Tips for sleep improvement

 

Reduce the use of electronic equipment

Electronic devices emit blue light. This blue light ensures that the production of the hormone melatonin is inhibited, causing you to fall asleep more difficult.

 

Provide a healthy sleeping environment

A bedroom with a good bed and bedding is of course important. But it is also important that the room is dark, cool and quiet so that no distractions can arise.

 

Make a good night’s sleep a priority

Sleeping may not be the most interesting thing you will do someday. But if you make it a priority, you will avoid sleep deprivation. This could mean that you sometimes have to ignore other activities.

 

Block blue light with glasses with orange lenses

If you would still like to take a look on your smartphone or maybe see the last part of the movie in bed, this is a perfect solution. Orange glasses ensure that the blue part of the light from your screen is filtered. This allows you to keep watching screens without disrupting the production of melatonin in the evening.
