TCM sleep regimen
Sleep is an important means to balance the yin and yang of the human body, it is the best energy saving, it is also the best reserve and recharge, it is the best way to restore fatigue and get out of sub-health.
The mechanism of TCM sleep is: Yin Qi Sheng is stunned (sleep), Yang Qi Sheng is stunned (wake up).
So you should go to bed at night (21-23), and enter the best sleep state at night.
Because according to the Sleep Theory of the Yellow Emperor’s Canon, the middle of the night is the yin and yang meeting, and when the water and fire are at hand, it is called “heyin”. When the yin is the heaviest in the day, the yin master is quiet.
There are four magic weapons to improve sleep quality.
The first is to promote napping.
“Zi, noon” is the time when the body’s energy is “heyin” and “heyang”, which is good for nourishing yin and nourishing yang.
It is best to fall asleep before 11pm.
Because rest at this time, you can nourish the yin most, sleep best, and can do more with less.
It is only necessary to take a 30-minute break at noon (11-13 o’clock), because at this time it is “heyang” time and the yang is strong, so the work efficiency is best.
Also, slow down your breathing before going to bed.
Before going to bed, you can sit quietly, take a walk, watch slow-paced TV, listen to slow music, etc., to make your body gradually quiet, and then you will be overcast and overcast, and it is best to lie in bed for a few minutes to do qigong.Inner spirit.
Before going to bed, you can eat something that supports the heart and yin, such as rock sugar lily lotus root tincture, millet red date porridge, lotus root powder or longan meat water . Because the heart is still working hard after sleeping, among the five internal organs, the heart is the hardest, so it is appropriateTonifying the heart and yin will be good for health.
Patients with insomnia do not forget to soak their feet with warm water before going to bed, which can promote heart-kidney intersection.
The intersection of heart and kidney means that water and fire are in harmony, and it can promote the combination of yin and yang. The combination of yin and yang, sleep, of course, reaches the best state.
