After a busy morning, many people have the habit of taking a nap, hoping to "recharge" themselves. Others say, "Do not sleep at noon, collapse in the afternoon". In fact, a proper nap does have many benefits. It not only helps to eliminate fatigue and restore energy, but also may make people happier. Today, health-knowledges will show you the benefits of naps.

1. Eliminate fatigue and restore energy. People are usually energetic in the morning, because after a night rest, people's internal functions have been restored, but after a morning's work and study, people generally feel tired and mentally ill. A proper nap after lunch can timely adjust the body function, help people to eliminate fatigue and restore energy, which is very beneficial to work and study in the afternoon.

2. A reasonable nap can make people happier. Researchers at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK surveyed more than 1,000 people's napping habits and found that people who napped less than half an hour were happier than those who did not nap or took long naps. As far as respondents were concerned, 66% of those who napped less than half an hour felt happy; 56% of those who took longer naps felt happy; and 60% of those who did not nap felt happy.

3. Reduce blood pressure. A Greek study has shown that naps help lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients with better blood pressure control, similar to other known antihypertensive measures. The researchers found that the average 24-hour systolic blood pressure of nappers was 5.3 mm lower than that of non-nappers, and 3.3 mm lower than that of non-nappers.

4. liver protection. Traditional Chinese medicine holds that people's sleep is particularly important at two hours of the day: noon and noon. Among them, noon refers to 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and noon refers to 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. These four hours are the time for bone marrow hematopoiesis, and the blood flowing through the liver is the most. Sleeping at this time is conducive to the restoration of liver function.
