Ancient health regimen sleeps in a nap
In the ancient way of health, the concept of “three colds, two downs and seven fulls” is the most famous in the world.
The so-called “two downs” means to sleep well, “the meridian feeling”, the ancients even called this one of the three magic weapons for a hundred years of health.
銆€銆€So, what is the meridian?
To put it simply, it is required to fall asleep on time in the middle of the day, at noon. The main principle is that “the child slept, and the afternoon was small.”
銆€銆€According to the sleep theory of the classic Chinese medicine “Yellow Emperor’s Canon”, the time is from 11:00 pm to 1 am, which is the most yin and the yang is weak.
Chinese medicine believes that “yang is full of sleep”, this time the best rest and sleep, the highest quality of sleep, can exert twice the result with half the effort.
銆€銆€At noon, it is from 11 noon to 1 pm. At this time, the yang is the most prosperous, the yin is weak, and the yin is as good as it is, so you should sleep at noon.
However, yang is usually the most efficient when it is in full bloom, so the lunch break is mainly “small scorpion”, as long as it takes half an hour.
Because the nap time is too long, it will disturb the body clock and affect sleep at night.
銆€銆€There are a few things to note about the nap: 1:
The weather is hot and you have to cover something on your stomach.
Don’t rest in a place where you can see the vents.
It is best not to eat too greasy things before going to bed, because it will increase the viscosity of the blood and increase cardiovascular disease.
Although it is a nap, it is not too casual. Don’t sit or kneel on the table to sleep. This will affect the blood supply to the head, making you feel dizzy, dazzled, and weak.
The lunch break should be laid down comfortably, lying down or lying on the side, preferably with the head high and low, lying to the right.
