Everything seems foggy, and your brain feels like mush. You walk around in a daze, not unlike having a hangover. Only you did not just have a whole night of partying, did you? No, your night was horrible, because you spent most of it tossing and turning battling insomnia, and hoping that you can at least get a couple of decent hours of rest. So, when you wake up, your mind just does not feel right. And, your work and other responsibilities might be suffering as a result.
A good night of sleep is the body's natural way to refresh and rejuvenate itself. All of the body's major organs are able to be at complete rest in order for them to be prepared for them to be ‘on the go’ the next day, all day long. The more you fight the natural urge to sleep and not give your body that chance to be at ease, the more you will eventually take a toll on your body. But, what you may not always be aware of is just how this affects your overall brain power as well.
Your brain gets tired just as much as the rest of your body, if not more. This is the control center of the body, signaling all sorts of things including memory, impulse and of course, memory. If any of these things becomes affected by many nights of restlessness, then you are seriously putting yourself in jeopardy.
Think about all of the tasks you do that involve attention. You would not get behind the wheel of a car if your brain were impaired with alcohol. But, a lack of sleep produces similar if not more intense results, because the mind cannot pay attention and wants to shut off. Or wouldn't you hate it if you missed a really important event that your child is involved with, because you simply forgot about it? You may feel overworked, and as a result you may not be getting proper rest, so it just slips your mind.
Don't you want to feel that sharp, alert and focused feeling that you used to? It is one thing to make a mistake here and there, but getting a good night of sleep will help you increase your mental abilities and prevent you from making constant errors at work, school or home. Your overall performance would improve, and this would boost your confidence level quite a bit.
If all you have to do to accomplish increased brain function is lay your head down and rest on your bed for seven to nine hours every night, why wouldn't you want to make this a top priority. If you are having trouble sleeping, and this is virtually impossible for you, it is time to make some changes. Take the proper steps that you need in order to ensure that you will sleep the night through. Seek the aid of a doctor, change your room around a bit, and shut out distractions so that your insomnia will be a thing of the past.
