The Effect Of Frequent Naps For 7 Hours?
, is there any disturbance if we nap for 6 to 7 hours? He said when sleeping before sunset that our tendency to experience symptoms of senility or often forgetting is it true?
Is there a specific reason for taking 6-7 hour naps? Do you work in shifts that don't allow you to sleep at night? The body needs quality sleep to keep it fit and fit. In this case, it is advisable to sleep 7-8 hours at night.
The body has a "biological clock" where during the day it is programmed to be awake and work, while at night it is programmed to be tired and drowsy (the influence of the hormone melatonin) so that at night it is used for sleep and rest.
If the body is used to taking very long naps and staying up late at night, over time it will affect the body's biological clock to be reversed. If there is a change in the body's biological clock, it will be more difficult to restore the biological clock to its original state, as a result, you may experience insomnia, fatigue and drowsiness during the day. Conditions like this will certainly reduce productivity at work.
If the daytime is very sleepy, it's okay to take a nap, but limit naps to no more than 30 minutes. Naps are best at 14-15 hours with a duration of 20-30 minutes. Naps like this don't interfere with the body's biological clock and can be useful for improving mood, relaxation, reducing fatigue and increasing concentration and alertness.
Related to the prohibition of sleeping before sunset, scientifically this is related to the body's biological clock. Just before sunset, it is the peak of body fitness so it is a good time to be active. If you take a long nap and wake up just before sunset, your body will feel weak, sore, stiff, anxious, irritable, and sometimes experience time disorientation (think when you wake up in the morning, even though it's just starting to get late). This condition is related to the production of the hormone melatonin (makes you tired and drowsy) and the production of cortisol and adrenaline (increases alertness after waking from sleep, but can also make you anxious and irritable).
Therefore, you should start improving your sleep hours with 7-8 hours of sleep at night and limiting naps to less than 30 minutes. Try to take a nap between the hours of 14-15. If you are a shift worker, try taking a nap before going to work and after coming home from work.
Hope it can help you,
