Sleep and memory retention
Learning and memory retention
“During sleep, pathways form between nerve cells (neurons) in your brain that help you remember new information you’ve learned. Sleep deprivation leaves your brain exhausted, so it can‘t perform its duties as well. You may also find it more difficult to concentrate or learn new things.” – healthline.com
Guys who go to gym knows the importance of rest days, our physical body needs to rest in order to build up new muscles. If you keep gyming 7 days a week non-stop, pumping iron, without giving your body time to rest, it’s actually detrimental to your body.
In the same way, when you keep studying non-stop, deep into the night, getting less than 6 hours (JC students probably can’t get 9 hrs as recommended!) of sleep daily, this can have a negative effect on your learning and memory retention!
Always have a balance between learning, leisure and rest.
