Cannot sleep! Tossing and turning, I still can’t sleep! This is also the “new normal” of our sleep. At the same time, Xiaobian also checked the data and found that we actually have many misunderstandings about the sleep state. For this reason, Xiaobian specially made a small test and found that you, you, you, you, maybe all have these misunderstandings about sleep.
did you sleep? Did your brain sleep
of course! No! When we sleep, the brain is actually doing its work, and it remains alert because it needs to prepare for the next day’s work.
if you sleep one hour less at night, you won’t be very tired the next day.
We want to remind these students that it is actually wrong to have such an idea. We can train ourselves to sleep less, but we can’t reduce the physical requirements for actual sleep. Most people need eight hours to meet their own sleep. If you want to know how long you need to sleep, the method is simple: turn off the small alarm clock and sleep until you wake up naturally!
everyone dreams every night.
In fact, we do dream when we sleep, although we often don’t remember which dream we were shuttling in last night.
sleep disorder is only a psychological problem.
When we can’t sleep, we always attribute it to ourselves thinking too much, so it is easy to attribute the cause of insomnia to psychological problems. In fact, Xiaobian should responsibly tell you that physiological factors can also lead to sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, which is related to respiratory diseases.
