Sleep is Your Superpower

This talk will describe the revelatory new science of sleep, covering two topics: (1) the impact of sleep (e.g., efficient learning, enhanced memory, mental health stability), (2) the consequences of insufficient sleep on the brain (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, depression, anxiety, poor educational performance), and (2) the consequences of insufficient sleep on the body (e.g., cancer, immune dysfunction, cardiovascular disease). In summary, there is not one organ within the body or process within the brain that isn’t enhanced by sleep when we get enough, or strikingly impaired when we don’t.

Understand:

1. the impact of sleep (e.g., efficient learning, enhanced memory, mental health stability)

2. the consequences of insufficient sleep on the brain (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, depression, anxiety, poor educational performance)

3. the consequences of insufficient sleep on the body (e.g., cancer, immune dysfunction, cardiovascular disease).

4. Suggestions for optimizing and improving sleep
