How to deal with sleepiness? 7 ways to help you refresh your mind
Spring is coming. Although it is a beautiful season, many people are easy to get sleepy in spring, especially office workers. They always take a nap after eating, and many people start to get sleepy at work. What should we do? Although the lunch break can help people supplement their sleep, we should also pay attention to scientific methods. Here I recommend a good way to take a nap and fundamentally eliminate spring fatigue.
Although lunch break can help people supplement sleep, make the body get full rest, enhance physical strength, eliminate fatigue and improve afternoon work efficiency, it also needs to pay attention to scientific methods, otherwise it may backfire.
1. Don't go to bed immediately after lunch
Taking a nap just after eating may cause food reflux, causing gastric juice to stimulate the esophagus, which may make people feel uncomfortable at least, and may cause reflux esophagitis in severe cases. Therefore, it is best to rest for about 20 minutes after lunch.
2. The nap time should not be too long
Nap time of more than ten minutes is enough, and those who are used to sleeping for a long time should not exceed an hour.
Because after sleeping too much, people will enter a deep sleep state, the central nervous system of the brain will deepen inhibition, the metabolic process in the body will gradually slow down, and they will feel more sleepy after waking up.
3. Take a nap in bed
The ideal nap is lying flat, which can ensure that more blood flows to the digestive organs and brain, and provide sufficient oxygen and nutrients, which is conducive to the recovery of brain function and help digestion and absorption.
Many people are used to sitting or lying on the table for siesta, which will compress the body and affect blood circulation and nerve conduction. At least, the body cannot be adjusted and rested, and serious cases may lead to cervical spondylosis and lumbar disc herniation.
In addition, after taking a nap, you should get up slowly and exercise properly. You can wash your face with cold water to wake up your body and restore it to its normal physiological state. After taking a nap, you should drink fruit juice. This is the time to supplement vitamins. You can choose the fruit juice squeezed from pears and apples.
In addition to taking lunch breaks to properly supplement sleep, it is also very important to fundamentally eliminate spring sleepiness.
