中醫告訴你為什麼要在11pm前睡覺？ Chinese medicine tells you why you should sleep before 11pm?
Circadian rhythms are 24 hours cycles that are part of the body’s internal clock. In Chinese medicine, Qi and blood move systematically to a different organ every two hours.
The hours between 11pm-3am belong to the liver and gallbladder. It is important to sleep before 11pm to allow Qi and blood to flow back to liver and gallbladder.
Once the Qi and blood reach the corresponding, it nourishes the organ itself and supports their physiology function.
Liver and gallbladder are responsible for:
- Regular menstruation
- Decision making
- Nourish tendons
- Clear vision
Sleep before 11pm in order to feel more refreshed in the morning. The hour that you sleep does matter to your sleep quality.
