When you’re mad, everyday tasks like driving and work may later prove regrettable.
You shouldn’t sleep on it !!!
The saying “never go to bed angry” is valid advice. Going to sleep may reinforce or “preserve” negative emotions, suggests a study in the Journal of Neuroscience, which found that sleep enhances memories, particularly emotional ones.
“We are learning that sleep seems to help us process and consolidate information we acquire while we are awake,” says Allen Towfigh, -based board certified sleep medicine doctor and neurologist.
So going to bed after an argument will likely cause that experience to be consolidated more effectively than if you went on to remain awake for that same eight-hour period, says Dr. Towfigh.
