The brain is the most important organ of the human body. Whether a person is sleeping or working, the brain is always active.
Confused? The brainstem, an important part of the brain controls sleep, heartbeat, pain, etc. A person who’s brainstem isn’t working is declared brain dead by neurosurgeons. The cerebral hemispheres control your motion and your ability to read, write, etc. Cerebellum, yet another important part of the brain receives signals from various parts of the brain and controls the activity of a person.
Sleeping relaxes and reduces the activity of the tired brain. It also eases various muscles of our body and comforts the tired eyes. If you don’t sleep for enough hours, you’ll suffer from headaches. Your eyes will be tired and you won’t be able to concentrate on work.
Because of depression or excess workload, a person may not get the much-needed sleep. Parents ask their children to count goats when they complain of sleeplessness. Frankly speaking, counting goats has become an obsolete technique. BTW, who will count goats in the age of the smartphone?
Adults won’t count goats. They’ll keep themselves busy on social networks or watch videos on YouTube. If you watch videos, your brain will be active. If you don’t take a break while watching clips, your eyes will hurt.
To get sleep, you must avoid late-night messaging or use one of the following sleeping apps.
