The sweet spot for sleep isn’t 8 hours?
Yes, you heard that correctly!
According to a major new study, we should all be aiming for exactly seven hours’ sleep, from our thirties to old age.
With 40% of us struggling to nod off, here’s how to get the best night’s rest to clear your brain fog.
Researchers discovered that both too much and not enough sleep could cause mental health problems and “worse cognitive performance”
The study also found that consistency mattered – so it’s no good getting nine hours one night then six the next.
The researchers speculate that one reason for the “brain fog” caused by lack of sleep is that slow-wave deep sleep is disrupted, which may also stop the brain from clearing out toxins.
They also found that the brain’s “memory centre”, the hippocampus, is affected by both an excess or a deficit of sleep. As yet, scientists are unsure why sleeping for too long causes a similar effect to not getting enough shut-eye.
For most of us, however, it’s a definite case of “not enough”.
