When we wake up the feeling of tiredness varies from time to time and from person to person, while some can jump straight out of bed and start the day energetically, others will remain with a lethargic feeling even though they slept well.
In fact, British medical experts say that the stresses of modern day life are inevitable, but it must be recognized that stress without adequate recovery is harmful to our health and should be avoided. It turns out that we have to rest about 42% of the day, meaning 10 hours. However, we noted that it should be noted that we do not necessarily need to sleep 10 hours every day, but rather spread out the accumulated weekly sleep time over the entire week.
Of course, the amount of rest required depends on personal needs. When a person doesn’t sleep well, feels stressed or has a busy schedule, they may feel like they need to take more frequent breaks, but the most important thing is to allow our bodies enough time to recover.
Rest can also be defined through behavior that aims to increase our physical or mental well-being. It can be through physical activity, such as going for a walk, or relaxation, or spending 10 minutes sitting and breathing deeply. Sleeping between seven and nine hours every night is essential for brain function, memory, focus, immune system and our metabolism.
