An Easy Way To Keep Your Brain Sharp at All Ages: If you want to keep your mind sharp with age, make it a habit to take a nap in the afternoon. This was revealed in a new medical study.
The study, published in the medical journal General Psychiatry, looked at the sleep habits of more than 2,200 healthy people over the age of 60.
Remember that taking a nap or sleeping for a while in the afternoon is a Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
The 1534 people surveyed were accustomed to taking a nap for 5 minutes to 2 hours in the afternoon, while 680 were not. The average sleep duration in both groups was 6 and a half hours.
The researchers took a test for dementia.
The results showed that people who take a nap have a better understanding of their surroundings, have a better daily routine and memory.
Research has shown that a good night’s sleep reduces drowsiness and drowsiness while providing benefits such as memory management, learning something, improved brain function, and emotional stability.
People who enjoyed a good night’s sleep performed better on brain performance tests.
It was an observational study that did not determine the cause, but the researchers said that some possible explanations for the results could be given.
One idea is that sleep regulates the body’s immune response and afternoon sleep is an evolutionary response to edema, meaning that people who experience more edema are more accustomed to taking a nap.
However, the researchers said that the study did not conclude that nap could prevent dementia and dementia in the elderly.
A recent study from the University of Saarland in Germany found that sleeping for a while in the afternoon helps to improve memory five times.
Research has shown that a 45-minute nap or nap in the afternoon helps keep information stored in the mind and recall it.
Research has shown that brain activity during sleep is important for storing new information, and just a 45-minute nap improves memory up to five times.
The results of the study were published in the medical journal Journal of Neurobiology of Learning and Memory.
Earlier, research by the American Health in Aging Foundation found that this habit protects the brain from aging.
Research has shown that sleeping for an hour in the afternoon is beneficial for the brain, but this period should not be more or less, otherwise, it is not beneficial.
According to research, people who are accustomed to sleeping for an hour in the afternoon are better able to do memory, various math questions, and other things.
The researchers said that with age, brain function begins to decline, but the habit of sleeping in the afternoon helps to improve these functions, while also reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s or other diseases.
