Every morning when you get up, do you think you’ve slept enough? Some people fall asleep when they touch the pillow, but wake up feeling groggy and weak . scientists believe that these “sleep is equal to no sleep” “junk sleep”, even more than insomnia. The problem is that it is not a good idea to snore.
Snoring does not mean good sleep, sleep violence is also very bad, oversleeping may sleep a high mortality rate. has a Japanese research survey shows that people who sleep 7 hours a day can live the longest, and the more sleep the higher the mortality rate, if you want to sleep more than 9 hours a day may have physical problems. As the fundamental of survival, sleep is closely related to our life.
Over the years, the world’s sleep experts are looking for a truly suitable for human sleep rules, in addition to the previous Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, “the secret of the biological clock” in addition to the road to sleep research, scientists have many different discoveries.
For example, according to the National Institutes of Health report, people who have 8 hours of sleep per night respond best, and if they have only 6 hours of sleep per night for 2 weeks, then they are forced to “open all night” for two nights.
The amazing thing about the study is that people who sleep 6 hours a night think they have enough sleep, but in fact their body functions and cognition are deteriorating unknowingly, although they do not feel sleepy, but in fact the functional response will get worse. Too little sleep is not good for your health, and too much sleep is not okay either.
On World Sleep Day, the concept of “junk sleep”, which was developed by the British Sleep Council after a survey, has once again aroused much debate in the academic community. “JUNK SLEEP” is the opposite of “JUNK FOOD”, which refers to the problem of insufficient sleep time and low sleep quality.
Are you sleeping like “junk”? What is the correct amount of sleep? What are the dangers of too much sleep? Don’t worry, you’ll know after reading this!
Which Sleep Like “Garbage”?
- Falling asleep while watching TV, listening to music or playing video games
- Forcing yourself to go to bed and get up in the morning at a “time” that is always being adjusted
- Forcing yourself to stay in bed longer after waking up naturally
- Not sleeping at night, make up for it during the day, and make up for it on both days
- Work pressure, need to work overtime at night, sleep immediately after the end of high-intensity work, etc.
What Is the Correct Amount of Sleep?
The British Sleep Association recommends that the best sleep time is 14-15 hours for infants aged 1-12 months, 12-14 hours for toddlers aged 1-3 years, 10-12 hours for children aged 3-6 years, 10-11 hours for children aged 7-12 years, 8-9 hours for teenagers aged 12-18 years, 7-9 hours for adults aged 18-65 years, and 7-8 hours for those aged 65 years. for 8~9 hours, 7~9 hours for adults aged 18~65, and 7~8 hours for those aged 65 and above.
Sleep “time” is not the more the better, but should be moderate. A lot of studies have shown that too much sleep can increase the prevalence of disease and mortality, especially in the elderly.
What Are the Dangers of Too Much Sleep?
Too much sleep induces diabetes
The normal sleep time is 6-8 hours, more than 9 hours becomes too much sleep time, and some studies found that too much sleep is likely to induce diabetes. Related research shows: if the sleep time exceeds 8 hours, the risk of diabetes will increase more than 3 times.
Too much sleep makes you stupid
Sleeping too long, people will become very lazy, and because of the long time to sleep, the brain rest time is too long, will lead to a decline in brain cell activity, because the sleep time is too long, the nerve cell inhibition time is long, over time, it will affect the intelligence, resulting in memory loss, resulting in people more and more stupid.
Prone to death
Relevant data show that the mortality rate of people who sleep 7 hours a day is the lowest, less than 6 hours will increase the chances of death, the same more than 9 hours, will also increase the chances of death. And the results of this statistic does not distinguish between men and women. So for sleep is not the more the better, anything is the opposite, less is detrimental to health, more is also life-threatening.
Some researchers studied weight and fat gain among adults in Quebec over a six-year period. They found that people who slept too little and too long each night gained more weight than those who slept seven or eight hours.
During the study period, people who slept nine to 10 hours a night were 25 percent more likely to gain five kilograms of weight, even after controlling food intake and increasing physical activity. Therefore, these results emphasize the need to consider sleep duration as a factor when it comes to weight gain and obesity, the researchers wrote in the study report.
