Start with the basic needs of your brain: Sleep, mental flexibility and energy.
At Brainwise we offer trainings that focus on 3 interrelated topics that share an underlying mechanism: sleep, stress and fatigue.
- We have a sleep system that consists of 2 important processes that regulate sleep:
- Proces S = Our need for sleep, a homeostatic process: Our need for sleep builts up through wakefulness. The longer we are awake, the more sleep pressure we accumulate.
- Proces C = our circadian clock, which programs in advance when we should feel this sleep pressure, and when it's better not to feel it. This process is related to the production of melatonin, our sleep hormone, and cortisol, our wake/stress hormone.
- We also have a stress system which regulates our vigilance in light of our survival. This system could be compared to the gears of a car: the higher your gear is in, the higher your stress level is, and as such the more your nervous system wil asume you need to stay vigilant.
