Rule 7Make Sleep a Priority
These slumbering people are recharging their bodies, sweetly dreaming to prepare for a new day. But their brains are buzzing with activity. During the dreaming phase of sleep, your brain saves procedural memories -- how to do the tango, or how to play chess. There is also evidence that during the deepest phase of sleep, your long-term memories are being processed and stored. Sleep deprivation can alter your appetite control hormones, and make you feel tired, unfocused and unbalanced. Following proper sleep habits and having an optimal sleep environment is vital to your health.
