Why you must have adequate sleep

March 15, 2020 09:33 am

I sometimes stay up past bedtime to watch a cricket match.  Recently I was watching one, and there was a promotional advertisement.    The punch line of the commercial, during Champion’s League football match, was sonamanahhai, you can’t sleep.  The message jolted me back to reality, and I suddenly realized it was way past my bedtime.

A good night’s sleep

July 12, 2019 08:11 am

A good night’s rest is essential for healthy functioning of our bodies. But a lot of times, we don’t get proper sleep due to various reasons. Turns out, more than half the world’s population doesn’t get the required hours of sleep their body needs. If you are also having trouble sleeping, here are some things you should take note of to get quality sleep every night.

Dozing off to late-night TV or sleeping with other lights on may mix up your metabolism and lead to weight gain and even obesity.

There have been times when we have unintentionally forgotten to remove make-up before going to bed. We tell you why it’s important to be more careful and not to sleep with makeup on.

A recently published study shines new light on the potential link between lack of deep sleep and the development of Alzheimer’s disease. When it comes to the proper functioning of the brain’s waste removal system, which works to clear out toxic proteins, not all sleep is the same. Deep sleep appears to be a key component in helping reduce one’s chances of developing the disease, while lack of deep sleep may increase the risk.

Sleep has been underrated as the best medicine to fight off disease say researchers working on a new study. The study titled, “Gαs-Coupled Receptor Signaling and Sleep Regulate Integrin Activation of Human Antigen-Specific T Cells,” was published this week in the Journal of Experimental Medicine.

Maintaining a proper bedtime routine and incorporating some healthy and useful habits into it will result in you getting a better night’s sleep and having productive mornings.
