The Secret To Being A Better Learner and Leader

This may come as a surprise to you but sleep is extremely important for your brain's growth and memory.

According to Inc, "Sleep provides our brain the time it needs to restore and recalibrate, and prepare to store new information we will need to recall for the next day."

When our synapses are strong and rested, they are able to carry more information and strengthen our memory. If our brain is tired, our synapses are weak and they lose the ability to carry information.

For a better sleep, try to avoid these three things right before bed: late-night eating, late workouts, and caffeine. Ultimately, we need sleep so that our brains can recharge and get ready for the next day.
