Surprising Brain Booster
Ever had your teen show you how to work your new cell phone, only to find yourself completely stumped a few hours later? Go to bed and give it another go in the morning. A good night’s sleep can help you relearn complicated tasks – even if you forgot them the day before, according to the University of Chicago. How does snoozing boost your recall? Sleep seems to consolidate and stabilize your memory, restoring what your mind may have lost over the course of the previous day. It also backs up the data (similar to backing up your computer’s hard drive) so that you won’t loose the information again.
