Everyone functions better when they've had a good night's sleep.

Studies show that lack of sleep results in reduced cognitive function.

When we haven't had enough sleep, or attention span and memory suffer and we can't perform at our best.

Not to mention the fact that it makes us look terrible. Dark circles are not a good look.

In the long-term, sleep deprivation can even increase the risk of certain diseases and chronic health problems. Why would you do that to yourself?

Environment has a huge impact on productivity, and light is a key aspect of that. According to scientists, light has the ability to change the way we feel and work.

We may not pay much attention to it, but making some adjustments in the type and amount of light we get can have huge benefits.

Studies show that exposure to bright light can make us more alert and improve our performance, productivity and quality of sleep, but can also ward off depression.

On the other hand, poor lighting can make us more tired and stressed by causing a drop in cortisol levels.

So how does light affect us and what can we do to take advantage of those effects?

Most people work out because they want to lose weight, get stronger or learn new skills.

While they're observing their gains, they might be overlooking the less obvious benefits to their brain function.

When you exercise, you not only strengthen your skeletal muscles but your brain power, too. Scientific studies have shown that exercises have huge benefits for the brain.

Tuning into a podcast instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media on your daily commute, or instead of listening to music during your morning workout, could give you the kick start you need to start your day the right way.

It can also make you more productive.

If you think podcasts just aren't your thing, hold on. There are so many different ones out there that there's something for everyone, but it's hard to know where to start. Here are five great podcasts to start your day.

Brain Damage in Deep Space!

You have to admit – we all wanted to be an astronaut at some part of our lives.

Maybe it started when our dads started flinging us into the air and catching us – “rocket ship” as he’d call it. Or maybe that’s just me.

Nevertheless, human beings have a natural curiosity for the unknown, and we don’t really know too much about space, or at least most of us.

It’s scary but also fascinating. However, most people don’t really think about the repercussions of venturing out to space.

You lose body mass, your bones become weaker and less dense, you might get damaged psychologically.

It seems that in a new news article by the Daily Mail, those who go into space might suffer from brain damage due to exposure to the radiation levels in deep space.

Scientists further believe that this recent discovery can prove that astronauts suffer much more damage to their brain that we originally thought, proving possibly fatal on future missions to deep space due to a slower reaction time and major lapses in attention.

Scientific researchers came to this conclusion to several tests they had lab rats take, which were devised in a similar fashion to the tests that astronauts take during training prior to launch.

In these tests, they measured the ability of a rat to quickly react, as well as their attention levels.

Apparently, in the radiated rats that were tested, it was found that roughly 45% of them were affected by attention-related deficits, causing them to react much slower than the other 55%.

Additionally, these lab rats were continually tested every day for 250 days, testing these skills.

It was shown that after 50-60 days, all those who were radiation-sensitive suffered some degree of brain damage.

In 64% of animals affected, there were lapses in attention, followed by impulsive behavior which affected 45%, and slower reaction times in 27% of all affected lab rats.

What was most interesting to the scientists, though, was the fact that these lab rats’ damage to radiation was not dependent on how large a dose of radiation a rat was exposed to.

It was more dependent on a rat’s individual resilience to radiation exposure.

Scientists believe that if these applied to humans as well, then it would be possible to predict if an astronaut will have a higher risk of radiation-related damage to the brain beforehand, and be able to apply a more strict selection process to minimize failure.

While the scientists claim that they in no way want to restrict radiation-sensitive astronauts from going into space, they should be better well informed about their radiation sensitivity and be able to take better precautions to minimize this damage.

Staying In the Dark Boosts Hearing

Experts in the music industry often comment that the inability to see increases the hearing abilities of a person – the likes of Ray Charles or Stevie Wonder come to mind.

This isn’t really ground-breaking – it makes sense! When you see a blind person on the street or the train, you would normally deduce that their other senses are heightened.

Even at an early age, we were led to believe this was true, reading comic books, from the likes of Daredevil.

However, what recent research in neuroscience has suggested, is that preventing a person from seeing for even just a week might yield great results on the brain processing sound more effectively.

The researchers from the University of Maryland and John Hopkins University attest to this, where they performed experiments on mice and the correlation between hearing and sight.

In the experiment performed, they had two sets of mice, one set kept in complete darkness for a week, while the other set stayed in a naturally lit environment.

At the end of the week, they were given a variety of sounds to listen to, and checked how the brain was stimulated accordingly.

The results showed that the mice who stayed in the darkness for a complete week were able to increase hearing in terms of frequency selectivity, increased frequencies, and intensity discrimination.

Basically, not having vision for a week led to a higher sensitivity to softer tones, and being able to discriminate pitch more effectively.

By temporarily disabling the sense of sight, we may be able to engage the brain to allow better sound processing, which could be extremely helpful for older patients with cochlear implants or a receding sense of hearing.
: Hey-Kyoung Lee, Associate Professor, John Hopkins University.

The researchers speculate that the set of connectors in the sensory areas of the brain related to hearing, which degrade over age, may be stimulated to correct some sensory processing problems with the use of darkness.

This might hold many great applications in therapeutic use when fully understood.

However, at the moment, it’s still unsure how many days a human will have to stay in the dark to get this effect, and whether they’d even be willing to undergo something like that.

That being said, the researchers also speculate that sometime in the near future, they will be able to develop multi-sensory training methods to correct the sensory problems in some people.

The Afternoon Slump!

Yes, we’ve all been here before.

You’ve just had lunch, and now you’re back on your desk. However, whatever you try to do, you just can’t get a hold of your concentration and motivation to actually do work.

Productivity is in an all-day low. You start going onto Facebook, YouTube, and anything really just to keep you slightly engaged, and not doing work.

You have the afternoon slump: the time in the day where your brain just doesn’t care what you tell it to do, and you end up procrastinating.

Why does this happen, though? In a nationwide survey, it was shown that 40% of Americans don’t get enough sleep at night, resulting in this mid-afternoon dip.

Sleep is one of the most essential aspects in a productive workday – too less and you feel fatigued, too much and you’re lethargic.

You need to get just the right amount to ensure you’re in your best at work, ensuring your best – mentally and physically.

However, it just isn’t a lack or excess of sleep that bogs you down in the office.

Another one accredited to sleep, it seems that our circadian rhythms actually cause this afternoon slump.

At around 3pm, productivity and mental alertness, as well as focus dips down, causing us to feel empty-minded during the afternoon.

Obviously, though, there are methods to minimize the effects of this productivity downer.

Firstly, you could take a nap. Yes, take a nap. Obviously, you should tell the boss first, though, and explain the situation as to avoid any negative repercussions.

But 15 minutes right mid-afternoon might just be very beneficial to your body.

Make sure, though, that you don’t go over 15-20, as any more will end up in you feeling lethargic, rather than feeling more alert.

Additionally, drink a coffee right before you nap, so by the time you awaken, you’re pumped with caffeine as well.

Alternatively, there’s no reason why you can’t do a little exercise over lunch.

You don’t even have to hit the gym, but some aerobic activities like walking or climbing up and down the stairs for even just 10 minutes can get reduce your stress, and meanwhile, also increase endorphins, which will get you motivated for work.

Then again, it wouldn’t be bad to experiment with your body and see what works either.

Some things work better than others, and there are many other remedies to this available online.

Often times, people seem to forget the ease of using Google to look for solutions to their problems.

Remember, doing something is better than doing nothing.
