After going to bed in the morning, his heart and lungs were “injured”
As the saying goes, the plan of the day lies in the morning, and retired elderly people have become the main force of morning exercises.
However, many elderly people, because they get up early in the morning and exercise early, feel tired after exercising, so they have adopted the method of “sleeping back to bed” to relieve fatigue.
Xie Yuxiao, deputy director of the Department of Physical Rehabilitation, China-Japan Friendship Hospital believes that if morning exercise is a more vigorous exercise, such as running, the body’s endorphins will increase, and the brain will be in an excited state. Sleeping immediately will not only ensure sleep quality, but also bones after morning exerciseIncreased muscle blood volume and decreased return blood volume will cause cerebral ischemia and increase the burden on the circulatory system, which is not conducive to the recovery of cardiopulmonary function.
Elderly people should try to avoid formal “back to bed” sleep after intense morning exercise activities-lying down for a long time, just like sleeping at night.
Instead, take a gradual and peaceful way to rest and gradually transition from a state of exercise to a state of quietness.
If the morning exercise is a gentler exercise, such as playing Tai Chi, and you still feel tired or sleepy after the morning exercise, you can wait for a moment to calm down and take a nap according to your specific physical needs.
If the elderly have always had the habit of falling back to sleep after morning exercise, do not forcibly disrupt the rhythm of the biological clock.
