How Sleep Affects Your Emotions

It’s not just your imagination — you’re more irritable when you’re low on zzzzs. Sleep scientist Matt Walker explains how our nightly slumber affects the emotional centers in our brains, and why we can think of sleep as first aid for our feelings.

In this @TEDTalks #video Matt Walker, @sleepdiplomat, Professor of Neuroscience at UC Berkeley and author of Why We Sleep Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams explains why your sleep matters to your emotional well being.

Sleep – Your Mental Janitor

I always maintain that we can get along pretty well for a while without a mayor or other city officials, but not so without the janitors. I usually mention this when talking about dignity of labour. So it is good news to hear sleep being referred to as our “mental janitor” in New York Times.

A recent article in the New York Times, Good Night. Sleep Clean., reported that sleep “… may play a crucial role in our brain’s physiological maintenance. As your body sleeps, your brain is quite actively playing the part of mental janitor: It’s clearing out all of the junk that has accumulated as a result of your daily thinking.”

The March 2014 issue of Popular Science has a number of features on the Science of Sleep. Scroll down the page for the different articles.

And armed with all that… I wish you good sleep!
