People with insomnia usually don't have good and regular sleep habits, but they are very easy to get sleepy at 2-4 p.m. At this time, if you indulge yourself in a comfortable sleep, you may not be able to cultivate sleepiness in the evening.
If you are very sleepy, allow yourself to sleep for 15-20 minutes.
People who are fatter
Fat people may have some problems in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The metabolism of human body is relatively slow in sleep state, so it is not conducive to weight control for fat people.

Because it increases the curvature of the body, resulting in poor breathing, chest can not be very good to stretch, the body's oxygen supply will be insufficient. Women's chest compression posture can also induce a variety of heart or breast diseases.

After lunch, more blood will enter the gastrointestinal tract to help digestion. Sleeping on the stomach will aggravate cerebral ischemia, eventually leading to dizziness, tinnitus, leg numbness and other symptoms.
4. Affect digestion, leading to chronic gastritis. It is not good for health to sleep just after eating at noon. Most people eat more lunch, and it takes about 3 hours to digest these foods. If you eat lunch immediately lie on the table to take a nap, the digestive function of the stomach is easy to be affected, resulting in flatulence of the stomach, reducing digestion capacity, affecting nutrient absorption, delaying gastric emptying, damaging the gastric mucosal barrier, thus leading to gastritis.
5. Cause cervical spondylosis. The main problem is posture. Sleeping on the table will make the neck tilt forward, which is opposite to the physiological bending of the spine. If the time is long, it will easily lead to spinal deformation, fatigue of neck and waist muscles, and cause spinal diseases.
