If you are trying to get by on about six hours or less of sleep a night during the workweek, you are setting your brain up for future failure, according to a new study published last month in the journal, Nature Communications. In the study it was found that persistent short sleep duration between the ages of 50 and 70 was associated with a 30 percent increase of dementia risk. This was determined after following nearly 8000 people for 25 years. In the Bible in the book of Matthew Jesus shares about the importance of rest although he is not talking about sleep. He says, Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
