Sleep flushes out brain toxins

Interesting to know is that when you are sleeping, the brain cells will become half their size. This will free up space to flush out the bad toxins in your brain. That's why everyone should sleep more than 7 hours a day. If you sleep one hour less each day, it will accumulate. This sleep deprivation is not healthy. Eventually you will develop a brain of an alcohol addict. You will develop diabetes, heart problems and even cancer.

During your sleep, the glymphatic system will pump cerebral spinal fluid to your brain and flush out the toxins. You should cherish your sleep, enjoy it and feel how the spinal fluid goes through your brain. That's how I fall to sleep.

Other things to remember is to make the room dark, sleep before midnight, remove electronics, keep the temperature cool, don't use alarm clocks and buy a grounding mat for your bed.
