After a long night, I didn’t want to sleep again.
What can I do?
About one third of one’s life is spent sleeping, which shows how important sleep is to health.
But many times people unconsciously destroyed a good dream with their own hands…
Come and see, do you have the following 6 bad sleep habits?
Bad Habit One: Sleeping on a High Pillow
High pillows are not necessarily carefree!
The idiom “rest easy” reflects the Chinese people’s long-standing habit of “high pillow”. However, people who sleep on high pillow for a long time are equivalent to keeping their heads bowed passively, so they are frequent patrons of “stiff neck” and some “cervical spondylosis”.
However, low pillow or flat pillow is not good either, which will make the neck in a state of excessive extension. Sleep in this way is not only easy to swollen face, but also more easily affected by breathing. It is easy to open mouth and breathe, snore and drool, which is also unfavorable to sleep.
A good pillow can support the head and neck during sleep, make the neck in the normal cervical curvature position, and keep the neck muscles and ligaments in a relaxed balance state, which is a necessary condition for a good sleep.
Therefore, if you want to sleep well, first choose a good pillow. Click here, Dr. Clove will teach you how to choose.
Bad Habit 2: Sleeping While Watching TV Plays
Some people watched and fell asleep, but more people watched and couldn’t sleep any more…
In fact, this is a very bad sleep habit, because:
- No matter you watch TV series on what electronic equipment, the light emitted will affect sleep. The bed is only used for sleeping. Doing things unrelated to sleep in the bed will only further delay the time to fall asleep.
If you meet with a tense and exciting play with wonderful plot, will you stop until you finish watching it…
Therefore, Dr. Clove recommends that everyone turn off their cell phones, TV and computers when it is time to go to bed, be a good baby, and lie quietly in bed waiting for drowsiness to hit.
Bad Habit 3: Eat food taken late at night before going to bed,
Don’t eat afraid of hunger, eat… don’t sleep well.
Do you think, if you eat too much before going to bed, the food is not fully digested, and the stomach and intestines are still working at full strength, how can it not affect sleep?
Unless you have to stay up until 2 or 3 a.m. to sleep, eating food taken late at night after 10 o’clock is not so bad. After all, your body really needs to replenish energy for a few hours during this period.
Therefore, Dr. Clove recommends everyone not to eat for 2-3 hours before going to bed. For example, if you go to bed at 11-12 o’clock, then don’t eat at 8-9 o’clock at the latest.
Bad Habit 4: Drink Wine to Hypnotize
For sleep, drinking before going to bed has a greater impact than using electronic devices before going to bed.
- Drinking alcohol can cause the muscles around the respiratory tract to relax too much, Thus aggravating the symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea syndrome, seriously affecting sleep quality. For ordinary people without underlying diseases, alcohol will also reduce sleep quality. In addition, if you consume too much alcohol before going to bed, it will often affect the performance of the next day, resulting in decreased attention and obvious drowsiness.
Therefore, in order to ensure the quality of sleep, Dr. Clove recommends that everyone stop drinking 3-4 hours before going to bed.
Bad Habit 5: Sleep After Exercise Tired
Is it easier to get sleepy when tired? It just looks beautiful.
In fact, exhausting yourself before going to bed is not a good idea for what.
- Exercise activates our bodies, makes people breathe, heartbeat faster and sweat profusely, and it takes at least 2-3 hours to calm these excitement. If the exercise time is late, it is easy to miss the best time to fall asleep.
Therefore, Dr. Clove advised everyone not to do strenuous exercise for 3 ~ 4 hours before going to bed.
If you have the habit of exercising at night, you may as well advance the time.
Bad Habit 6: Smoke, Relax and Sleep
You are the one who says smoking relaxes, and you are the one who says refreshing.
Everyone knows nicotine, a well-known harmful ingredient in cigarettes, but everyone does not know that nicotine is actually a [stimulant] and has similar effects to caffeine.
In particular, smoking before going to bed or waking up in the middle of the night is similar to drinking a cup of coffee, which will only make people more awake and more difficult to fall asleep.
Therefore, if you want to have a good sleep, Dr. Clove advises you not to smoke at night.
