Deepak Chopra: Are You Getting Enough of the Right Kind of Sleep?

You've heard it a million times: "Are you getting enough sleep?" But have you ever wondered why exactly sleep is so important? In this video from Big Think, holistic health expert Deepak Chopra explains why getting adequate rest is critical for our minds and bodies, and how "we actually clean out the sludge from our brain" during deep sleep.

You are sure to impress your friends and colleagues as you explain to them that deep sleep actually helps you remove toxins from your body. And when you don't get enough sleep, according to Chopra, you're increasing your risks for obesity, inflammation, leaky gut, loss of creativity and energy, and even Alzheimer's.
