Why you wake up at the same time every night
Have you ever wondered why you can't get a good night's rest? Do you find yourself waking up at the same time every night?
If you have struggled with this issue for years, we sure you are worried. Sleep and rest are important and we all should get at least 7 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night.
Sleep is not only important for health and vitality but lack of it leads to premature ageing, under eye bags, acne and so much more. Just think of the attack on your health and physical appearance.
Fortunately, there are many solutions and theories being thrown around. Even better, we have done our research, and we have selected the most logical theory that gives you the most insight.
Traditional Chinese medicine scholars have identified the Chinese meridian body clock and the distribution of Qi. Qi is essentially energy.
Chinese research findings state that 12 medians related to 12 body organs have to be recharged throughout the day.
The study’s findings state that whenever there is a problem with the organs being recharge at night, our sleep gets disrupted.
So, for example, if you normally go to sleep at about 9 pm, then imagine your body organs are continuing to be recharged while you sleep.
Each organ is charged for a period of two hours. The Chinese study states that at 9 pm, your thyroid is being charged, followed by your gallbladder at 11 pm.
So if you plan to sleep until five am, then from 1 to 3 am, your liver is being charged, followed by your lungs between 3 and 5 am.
Taking the timelines we have provided into consideration then, you should already have a good idea which is your problem organ.
The Thyroid 9 - 11 pm
If you wake soon after you fall asleep or have a hard time falling asleep around this time, the culprit may be your thyroid.
There could also be a problem with your adrenal glands or metabolism. Some meditation or yoga, or relaxation exercises should help you sleep better.
The Gallbladder -11 pm to 1 am
The primary function if this organ is to store bile which aids in digestion and the Breaking down of fats. Waking up at this time could mean you need to consume healthy fats and oils.
It could also mean that you are being affected by low self-esteem, anger and resentment. A little bit of forgiveness and self-love will take you a far way here.
The Liver -1 to 3 am
Since the liver filters your blood, too many toxins could be the culprit here. Perhaps a simple detox and drinking more water will be a simple solution here.
Putting your mind at ease by letting go of anger will also help with ensuring you get the sleep you deserve.
The Lungs -3 am to 5 am
A problem with your lungs or any part of the respiratory system will no doubt cause sleep disruption. The symptoms of issues within your respiratory system will be very obvious to you. Sneezing, coughing and nasal congestion.
The solution here is breathing exercises. Further, if you are sad or grieving, finding a way to deal with these emotions can help you sleep better.
While there are tons of other theories, such as sleep apnea, this one seems to be the best so far to us.
Issues such as sleep apnea seem to be a symptom of an underlying cause notes than the actual cause itself.
If you want to improve or eliminate problems, you need to focus on the cause.
