Just a few nights of bad sleep upsets your brain - BBC News

Sleep deprivation 'costs UK £40bn a year' - BBC News
Sleep-deprived workers are costing the UK economy £40bn a year and face a higher risk of death, says a new study.
The calculation is based on tired employees being less productive or absent from work altogether.
Research firm Rand Europe, which used data from 62,000 people, said the loss equated to 1.86% of economic growth.
The biggest impact was on health, with those sleeping less than six hours a night 13% more likely to die than those sleeping between seven and nine hours.
The study evaluated the economic cost of insufficient sleep in the UK, US, Canada, Germany and Japan.

Are night shifts killing me? - BBC News
impairment of cognition, cognitive function! impaired recovery (method) for brain (and body as a whole)! It's false places vanity to claim to get over with less sleep than 6hrs. // &! Are night shifts killing me? - // hard wired to sleep at night. even organs // - Alarm clocks may be set at 3am, but body clocks never get used to the night shift (regardless of how much sleep an individual gets). This can disrupt the rhythm of vital gene activity. Night workers are likely to sleep less and less well than those keeping daytime hours, as they try to get their shut-eye while the rest of the street cuts its grass and revs its engines in the full glare of daylight. Those starting work at 4am are thought to have the mental prowess of those who’ve downed a few whiskies, which may explain a higher rate of work injuries at night than in the day. Cause of cancer. Brain drain. Feeling down. Also pitted to eat more and unhealthy!

BBC iWonder - Are you getting enough sleep?
In many cultures an afternoon nap or siesta is a way of life and the health benefits are impressive with increased stamina, reduced heart disease, improved mental ability and better moods. Studies have shown that a one hour nap can actually improve our mental alertness by up to 10 hours. So the next time you're being chastised for nodding off, remember this – some of the world's greatest minds have been advocates of the power nap – including Leonardo da Vinci who is said to have taken a 20 minute nap every four hours. Lots of mammals sleep irregularly throughout the day too, it's just us humans that choose to sleep in large chunks throughout the night. We're actually pre-programmed to sleep twice a day with our perfect nap zones around 2am and 2pm which explains why we're often tired after lunch, especially after eating carbohydrates which contain tryptophan that can make us drowsy.

Wir tun so einiges, um gesund zu bleiben: Wir versuchen, uns gesund zu ernähren, gehen regelmäßig zu Vorsorgeuntersuchungen und zum Sport. Die wichtigste Ressource für Gesundheit und Wohlbefinden vernachlässigen wir allerdings oft sträflich. Peter Stork zeigt in "Wake up!" (Hanser, € 18,90), welche zentrale Bedeutung guter, erholsamer Schlaf hat und weist darauf hin, dass ein gestörter, zu kurzer oder unregelmäßiger Schlaf eine Reihe von Krankheiten begünstigt. Stork empfiehlt mehr Licht am Tag und Bewegung im Freien, mehr Dunkelheit in der Nacht, er plädiert für die Abschaffung der Sommerzeit und einen späteren Unterrichtsbeginn in der Schule.

Go tell the boss: let me work less and I’ll produce more | Life and style | The Guardian
The five-day work week is an artificial and outmoded idea. A shorter working week can boost efficiency and an employee’s happiness [...] The latest trend might have more going for it, though: more tech businesses are experimenting with four-day weeks. As Ryan Carson, co-founder of the education startup Treehouse, put it: “You get all day Friday off, instead of pretending like you’re working when you’re not.” [...] The most important reason to work fewer days, of course, is that it’s good for families, friendship, hobbies and the human spirit. But the most interesting implication of the current experiments, backed by some academic research, is that it appears to be good for productivity and work quality, too. Partly that’s because desk-based “knowledge work” relies on plenty of brain rest as well as exertion.

Why a long night's sleep may be bad for you - BBC News
"The typical adult today [in that poll] reports seven hours of sleep. And that actually seems to be the median sleep duration in the adult population around the world. That suggests there's something around seven hours of sleep that's kind of natural for the brain." But if you enjoy sleeping, spend a lot of time in bed and feel good, you're probably just fine. There's no hard evidence that extra time asleep, or just lying down and relaxing, is going to kill you.

BBC - Future - Sleep: How to nap like a pro
In a study published last year, researchers found that both nocturnal and daytime sleeping improved memory consolidation for unrelated word pairs – like ‘pepper’ and ‘elbow’ – suggesting it can help if you’re trying to learn tricky-to-remember concepts. Another study, conducted at the Beijing University of Technology, examined the effect of napping on athletes after training. It found that naps could improve brain function and visual systems, and promote physical and mental recovery – a result that is in line with earlier research demonstrating that napping can facilitate motor memory consolidation.

BBC News - Bad sleep 'dramatically' alters body
The activity of hundreds of genes was altered when people's sleep was cut to less than six hours a day for a week. Writing in the journal PNAS, the researchers said the results helped explain how poor sleep damaged health. Heart disease, diabetes, obesity and poor brain function have all been linked to substandard sleep. What missing hours in bed actually does to alter health, however, is unknown.

BBC News - Sleep's memory role discovered
>> sleeping or sleep deprived. Their study showed that sleeping mice formed significantly more new connections between neurons - they were learning more. [...] A new reason for sleep was discovered last year when experiments showed the brain used sleep to wash away waste toxins built up during a hard day's thinking. However, there are concerns that people are not getting enough sleep. As part of the BBC's Day of the Body Clock, Prof Russell Foster argued that society had become "supremely arrogant" in ignoring the importance of sleep, leading to "serious health problems". These include: cancer, heart disease, type-2 diabetes, infections, obesity. The reward for more sleep, Prof Foster argues, is we would all be "better human beings."

Brain Aging Linked to Sleep-Related Memory Decline -
Scientists have known for decades that the ability to remember newly learned information declines with age, but it was not clear why. A new study may provide part of the answer.

The report, posted online on Sunday by the journal Nature Neuroscience, suggests that structural brain changes occurring naturally over time interfere with sleep quality, which in turn blunts the ability to store memories for the long term.

Naps prevent the afternoon crash —–>

Some of the benefits of napping in the middle of the day are:

Naps can increase Growth Hormone Secretion. Growth Hormone Secretion helps to maintain normal body structure and metabolism, including helping to keep blood glucose levels stable.

Naps can promote wakefulness and enhances performance and learning ability.

Naps early in the day do not negatively impact on night time sleep.
