A good night’s sleep is always refreshing, and it can go way beyond your mental faculties. Scientific evidences display that a quality REM sleep is vital in recovering from almost any given traumatic experiences.
During such a type of sleep, the release of stress hormones dramatically decreases. It is believed that the processing mechanism of the brain of painful memories with the absence of such chemicals allow their emotional sting to be decreased as well. The memories become more factual, less immediate, and thus, less painful.
