How To Build A New Habit

How To Build A New Habit | Life Technology Nature Science Human | Scoop.it

According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day. 

 

Understanding how to build new habits (and how your current ones work) is essential for making progress in your health, your happiness, and your life in general.

 

But there can be a lot of information out there and most of it isn’t very simple to digest. To solve this problem and break things down in a very simple manner, I have created this strategy guide for building new habits that actually stick.

Something Bizarre Happens to Your Brain When You Don't Get Enough Sleep

Something Bizarre Happens to Your Brain When You Don't Get Enough Sleep | Life Technology Nature Science Human | Scoop.it

What did you do last night? Careful — if you didn’t get enough sleep, your brain could be lying to you.

 

Turns out sleep deprivation can do worse than give you memory loss. It can actually implant false memories in your brain. This discovery comes from a new study published this week in Psychological Science.

 

“We examined the relationship between self-reported sleep duration and false memories and the effect of 24 hr of total sleep deprivation on susceptibility to false memories,” the researchers wrote. “We found that under certain conditions, sleep deprivation can increase the risk of developing false memories.”

Lack of sleep has been linked to plenty of problems.

Stephan Nothnagel's curator insight, July 21, 6:10 AM

Working late nights to "get ahead" or catch up may well end up being counter productive and even damaging. Rather focus on prioritising better and getting more productive during the day - but make sure you sleep enough.
