It's rare for someone to say that they've gotten enough sleep. School, work, having kids - all lead to a constant need for wakefulness, which has a detrimental effect on the body.
The face beings to look grayish, with additional wrinkles, thoughts flow chaotically, the head is bursting from pain. In this state, it is difficult for a person to work.
But what if the constant busyness simply does not allow you to get enough sleep like a normal person and you have much less than 8 hours at your disposal?
You have to find a way to get enough sleep in a shorter period of time. Our brain directs many processes in our body, with sleep also being among them. Since sleep is periodic, the light cycle of day and night lies at its foundations.
2 days without sleep deprive us of the ability to think and act adequately. Arrhythmia, memory loss, depression and other problems occur.
To recover your strength, you can sleep 5 1/2 hours instead of 8. But unfortunately you will feel neither rested nor alert.
This is due to the fact that sleep consists of several phases. Sleep is divided into 2 types - REM and NREM. During the REM phase, our brain processes the information received during the day.
During the NREM phase, our brain processes the information of any problems in the body. It is then that the body's energy is restored and our cells are repaired.
In order to learn to get enough sleep quickly, pick a weekend when you may not need to sleep for an entire day. Begin the experiment at midnight. Listen to your body and senses.
Find out when your body wants to sleep. After you wake up, write down the time when you began to doze off and evaluate the degree of your falling asleep.
If the next day you feel dreadfully sleepy, determine the time when this feeling became unbearable. Write down the time.
If, for example, the first phase of sleep occurred at 3 in the morning, and the second - at 5 in the afternoon, that is the time when your body will fuel itself with the most energy if you were to sleep.See more
