The Chinese Body Clock Explains Why You Wake Up at Night and How to Fix It

year ago

If you constantly wake up approximately at the same time each night, the Chinese suggest you study the body clock. They say that every hour of sleep before midnight is worth 2 after midnight, but to have a good night’s sleep, you need to check your organs first.

We at Bright Side learned that each hour during the night is connected to a certain organ and are sharing this interesting information with you. Please remember that these things are not meant to be medical advice.

From 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The window between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. is connected to your endocrine and lymphatic systems, the Chinese say. These systems are more active during this time. If they’re out of balance, you might feel depressed and have bad sleep during this window.

Also, among these symptoms, you can experience mania, feelings of guilt, a hormone imbalance, and a thyroid disorder. You need a better bedtime routine, and remember that 10:30 p.m. is the latest time you should be in bed to ensure you’re asleep by 11 p.m.

From 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

This window is responsible for the gall bladder. The wrong functioning of this organ leads to imbalanced feelings of uncertainty, poor judgment, difficulty making decisions, shyness, timidity, and high cholesterol. Experts suggest you avoid consuming unhealthy drinks and trans fats.

From 1 a.m. to 3 a.m.

During this period of time, the liver is more active. It tries to detoxify your body and process the emotions of the day. You might feel angry and experience moodiness and headaches when awake.
If you keep waking up at this time, you may have too many bad habits, including consuming unhealthy drinks and unhealthy food, especially if you do so at night.

From 3 a.m. to 5 a.m.

The lungs are active during these hours. If you have problems with this organ, you may experience sadness, shallow breathing, sweating, and chest pain. Try doing breathing exercises before bed, or talk to a friend or a psychologist.

From 5 a.m. to 7 a.m.

The large intestine works actively this time. If it has a disorder, you may feel defensive or stuck in a situation. Each time you wake up from your alarm clock, you may feel frustrated. The Chinese suggest you include more fiber or water in your diet.

How often do you wake up at night? Do you sleep well?
