Poor exercise when too tired
Some people think that they can’t sleep well and can be improved through exercise, so they go to the gym to do a lot of training, but this practice sometimes worsens insomnia.
First of all, exercise does improve sleep because it regulates autonomic nerves, causing brain excitement to shift and inhibit.
Studies have found that regular, low- and medium-intensity aerobic exercise has a good effect of correcting insomnia.
Generally speaking, exercise 3-4 times a week, each lasting about 30 minutes, the mode of exercise is jogging, swimming, cycling and other moderate-intensity aerobic exercise is more suitable.
However, in the case of poor physical and mental status due to long-term insomnia, high-intensity exercise should not be performed blindly.
The body needs sufficient sleep to repair minor muscle damage from training and restore physical fitness.
In the absence of physical energy, overtraining may worsen insomnia and put people into a vicious circle, and boots affect a variety of metabolism and endocrine functions, leading to endocrine disorders.
In addition to choosing the right exercise intensity, exercise time is also important.
Many people have such an experience in college days: after coaching for a few laps after self-study in the evening, the spirit will continue to be so high that they will not be able to fall asleep after turning off the lights for a long time.
This is because physical exercise accelerates the blood circulation of the body and visceral functions are stimulated to become active. It takes a certain amount of time to return to a normal resting state.
Therefore, insomniacs should choose to exercise in the morning, noon, and evening, but they must not exercise at night, especially within 2 hours before going to bed, otherwise things will go wrong.
In case of bad rest such as staying up late and insomnia, you should make up for sleep first.
If you feel too tired, you should cancel the training program for the day, or adjust the normal training to mild low-intensity exercise and shorten the training time.
