Gem 1: “Why We Sleep”

As readers, we appreciate a good book recommendation. Since the world is full of gems, old and new… We can’t settle for what we have had so far. The search continues for as long as we live, as long as we want to read. This book is one of the best out there. It discusses a vital matter and we think it will be worth your time.

In this article, we address a book called “Why We Sleep” written by Dr. Matthew Walker, an English scientist and a professor of neuroscience and psychology. In his studies, he focuses on sleep patterns and the impact of them on people’s health. So, in his “Why We Sleep”, he continues to shed some light on the same subject… The way we sleep, the impact of it, the dreams we have, and what modern science holds for us in this regard. The book unfolds further topics that I suspect will interest you as well.

Dr. Matthew Walker talked about the relationship between our sleep and our health. He stated that the connection between sleep and suffering from illnesses such as Alzheimer’s is so tight. Your unstable sleep pattern compromises your health and exposes you to other mental health issues such as depression. Not to mention affecting your weight by standing in the way of your diet.

Why We Sleep insists that those who don’t get enough sleep everyday are more likely to die sooner and that no matter how much you sleep or rest during the day, you can’t catch up on what you have missed in the night time. As researches show, sleep cures your body and gets rid of any damage that happens during the day. It also fixes you on the emotional side as well by deleting the bad memories and unpleasant events.

This was a little teaser for those who have not read the book yet. We encourage you to give it a go and learn more about how your body works. Get back to us and share your thoughts!
