The Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep
It’s 4am, and the big test is in 8 hours. You’ve been studying for days, but you still don’t feel ready. Should you drink another cup of coffee and spend the next few hours cramming? Or should you go to sleep? In this lesson from Ted Ed, Shai Marcu defends the latter option, showing how sleep restructures your brain in a way that’s crucial for how our memory work.
This is a brilliant video for a wide variety of people as it tells you how to get the most out of your brain and body by going to sleep at the right time.
