Perfect Night's Sleep


We spend about a third of our life sleeping, so it must be important! It's good for your memory and it's good for solving problems and coming up with ideas too - scientifically proven! Not just that, according to Russel Foster (neuroscientist) if you are tired you are more likely to be ill and put on weight. Are you getting enough of the right kind of sleep?

TED: Russell Foster Why do we sleep?

Russell Foster: Why do we sleep?

Russell Foster is a circadian neuroscientist: He studies the sleep cycles of the brain. And he asks: What do we know about sleep? Not a lot, it turns out, for something we do with one-third of our lives. In this talk, Foster shares three popular theories about why we sleep, busts some myths about how much sleep we need at different ages -- and hints at some bold new uses of sleep as a predictor of mental health.
