The reason why many people don’t like to take a nap at noon is because they feel that they are not sleepy. By about one o’clock in the afternoon, others may have just woke up and are still in a lazy state, but you still look good without sleeping. But at around two or three o’clock in the afternoon, those who took a nap were very energetic, and those who did not take a nap began to yawn, feeling exhausted physically, and did not want to work or study at all. There will be a difference in efficiency between those who take a nap and those who do not.
The day is divided into morning, noon and evening. In the morning, people’s mental state is good and the brain reacts quickly. As time goes on, the brain’s reaction speed will become slower and slower. Especially in the evening when the whole body is exhausted, the brain’s reaction speed is obviously reduced, but there is a 15~30-minute lunch break at noon, which can give the brain a short rest, which is conducive to the recovery of neuroregulation. In the afternoon, the mental state is good and the brain is working fast, and there is no heavy fatigue even in the evening.
The ancients had the awakening of “one sleep and all diseases disappeared”, indicating that people actually realized the benefits of taking a nap very early: 1. Enhance memory, taking a nap is not only to eliminate physical fatigue and sleepiness, It can also help you enhance your memory. People who insist on taking a nap will find that even if they sleep for 10 minutes, they will feel much better in the afternoon, and they will be more efficient in doing things and working. This is because taking a nap can not only repair the body, but also transform fragmented memories into a network structured memory, which can transform information from short-term to long-term memory during sleep, thereby enhancing memory and preventing Alzheimer’s.
- Maintain eyesight. Nowadays, when people are working, they are basically facing the computer or mobile phone. After a morning of work, it is inevitable that eyestrain or dry eyes will appear. At this time, if you can close your eyes and rest for a while, your eyes will be well rested and repaired, thus ensuring the health of your eyes and maintaining normal vision.
In summary, people who have the habit of taking a nap are healthier. A short lunch break can improve work efficiency, slow down the speed of aging, and have strong resistance and immunity. But the lunch break should not be too long. It can be controlled within 30 to 60 minutes, which can give the brain a short rest and give the brain nerves time to recover. After waking up, he still maintains a good mental state, and he will not be so tired even at night. In addition, pay attention to sleeping posture, and you can lie on the bed or sofa if possible. If you have no conditions, you can lie on the table for a morning break. It is best to put something soft and high on your arm to reduce squeezing.
