Management of sleep time Sleep time varies from person to person, not the longer the better. Human sleep is divided into light sleep and deep sleep. As long as there is enough deep sleep, the brain and body will be fully rested and recuperated. No matter if you sleep for 5 hours or 8 hours, if there is no daytime sleepiness the next day and you stay refreshed, it means that the sleep time is appropriate and just right.

Management of non-sleep time The amount of sleep we need every day is fixed, so when you wake up, you can’t stay in bed. If you feel sleepy and yawn during the day, do housework or go for a walk. If you are too sleepy, you can set an alarm for a quarter of an hour and take a nap. It is recommended that everyone be busy during the day, move up, and lay the foundation for a normal sleep at night.

Life management about sleep People with poor sleep quality should try not to drink tea, wine, coffee and other exciting drinks in the afternoon or before going to bed. At the same time, don’t overeat or take indigestible food for dinner, “if the stomach is not in harmony, you will be restless”, and it will be beneficial to sleep by reducing the burden on the stomach and intestines.
