Sleep deprivation can distort your mind...

There is a new Washington State University study on sleep that states that sleep deprivation affects our our means of processing cognitive functions. Our memory may be intact after sleep deprivation, but we are incapable of processing that memory effectively. This means we may remember, but the brain will distort the information due to sleep deprivation.

As noted in previous blogs on this site, take some time to look over some of the important techniques for enhancing your sleep and getting a good night's rest.

For more information on this study, please go to
