Siesta
In Taiwan, people have Siesta culture. According to traditional Chinese medicine, “yan qi” is most vivid in human bodies during 11:00 pm ~ 13:00am. People can take a nap during this time to adjust yinyan and get refreshed. It is beneficial for health involving decreasing blood pressure, protecting a heart, strengthening memory and improving immunity. However, there are few points which should be noticed when taking siesta.
First, don’t eat too much and greasy before your sleep.
Second, don’t take the nap too long.
Third, after awaking, you should do light movements. Sit for a while and then get up.
Since I feel sleepy every morning, it is important for me to take a short break in the noon.
午睡
在台灣有午睡的習慣。中醫認為11點到1點是人體陽氣最盛的時候,所以休息一下可以調節陰陽,讓精神變好。此外也有人認為午睡有益健康,可以降血壓、保護心臟、增強記憶力、提高免疫力等。
但是午睡要注意以下幾點:
一、 不能吃太飽、太油膩。
二、 午睡不宜過長
三、 醒來後要輕度的活動,坐一下再起身
因為我每天醒來都覺得好睏,所以有午睡能小憩片刻,對我來說很重要呀!
