Three Taboos About Sleep

Smart Life Watch

One-third of people's life is spent in sleep, and sleep is the need of life. Get a good night's sleep and feel refreshed and happy during the day. Do you know all these things about sleep?

It is not advisable to have a high pillow, and it is not advisable to use your hands as a pillow.

When lying on the back, the height of the compressed pillow should be equal to the height of one's fist. When lying on the side, the height of the pillow should be equal to the width of one shoulder. If it is too low, it is easy to "stiff neck", or due to too much blood flowing into the brain, the brain will be swollen and eyelids swollen the next day; if it is too high, it will affect the smoothness of the respiratory tract, and it is easy to snore.

Sleeping with both hands under the head not only affects blood circulation, but also easily increases intra-abdominal pressure, which may lead to the appearance of "reflux esophagitis".


Avoid getting angry, overeating, and drinking strong tea before going to bed.

Getting angry before going to bed can make your heart beat faster and your breath short. The alveoli continue to expand and are difficult to fully contract, and cannot get proper relaxation and rest, which in turn endangers the health of the lungs.

During sleep, if food stays in the stomach for a long time, it will force the stomach to secrete a large amount of gastric juice, damage the gastric mucosa, easily cause gastric erosion, gastric ulcer, and seriously induce gastric cancer. Tea contains substances such as caffeine, which can stimulate the central nervous system. If you drink tea before going to bed, especially strong tea, the central nervous system will be more excited, making it difficult to fall asleep.


It is not advisable to sit and sleep, and lying down at night with your mouth closed is the best way to maintain vitality.

When the human body is in a sleep state, the blood circulation slows down and the blood supply to the head decreases. Sitting and taking a nap due to the positional relationship leads to less blood supply to the brain, which makes people prone to a series of symptoms of cerebral ischemia and hypoxia such as dizziness, vertigo, and fatigue after waking up.

In the final analysis, if you maintain a reasonable diet, exercise properly, and work regularly, diseases will be difficult to find. May all nights sleep peacefully, say "good night" and wish "good dreams". Let BP Smartwatch track your sleep status and become a good partner in caring for your sleep.
