Re: New to the Board.. survivor: Lower Cerebellum Stroke

Hi Barbe4...Writeleft is correct....sleep is the best thing for your brain. Think of it this way......when you're awake, your brain is busy running your body. The only time it gets to concentrate on healing itself is while you are asleep and it's work load is lighter. Sleep when you are tired. Your brain is telling you it needs some down time to do some repairs. And you'll remember better with more sleep. That's where we get the old saying of "sleep on it". It really does help us remember and work things out. In a study done at a university the kids were divided into 2 groups...one who studied all night and then took a test and another who studied, then got a good night's sleep and did the test. Guess which group did better...the ones who slept.

So sleep until your brain tells you it doesn't need so much rest.

gentle hugs.............Jenny
