How many hours of sleep do we need to get enough sleep? A British expert has given a definitive answer to this question.
According to The Mirror, sleep expert Cara Pritchard, of Hnight.com, says that our sleep is in the form of "cycles". Sleep occurs, followed by deep sleep and then the 'rapid eye movement phase.
After that the sleep becomes light again and with that the second cycle begins.
"Six to eight hours of sleep is enough for a healthy adult, but we need to wake up at the end of this last sleep cycle when sleep is getting back to normal," she said.
If we fall asleep or wake up in the phase of rapid eye movement, we feel drowsy all day long and we get tired. ”
A 10 to 20 minute nap at any time of the day is enough to refresh yourself, Cara said. A nap should always be taken between 1 and 3 p.m.
Napkins have many medical benefits, so they should be avoided. It relieves anxiety and stress and improves mood.
It improves memory and increases the ability to work. In addition, taking a nap helps to heal the sick.
