5. Spending long hours of the day in closed rooms and dark places
Lack of sunlight and spending a long time in the dark reduces the production of serotonin in the body. This hormone keeps your mood balanced. Darkness and darkness suppresses melatonin production in your brain. Melatonin is a chemical that regulates your sleep patterns.
Many studies believe that there is a possibility of changes in the structure of the brain due to being in the dark for a long time. Therefore, memory and learning ability are negatively affected. In such a situation, to avoid all these inconveniences, enjoy the rays of the sun and keep your doors and windows open.
6. Lack of enough sleep
Sleep is very important for our overall health. Getting proper sleep is especially important for maintaining mental health. In such a situation, not getting proper sleep can have a bad effect on your memory. Along with this, your decision-making ability is also affected somewhere. During sleep, cerebrospinal fluid floats in your brain. This helps to remove available proteins.
Due to lack of enough sleep, this protein cannot be released, so there is a possibility of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and memory loss. To avoid such inconveniences, take 7 to 8 hours of healthy sleep every day.
