“I’m not feeling well and I’m sleeping all the time”
There are people who say
This person suffers from depression, and when he wakes up, he feels uneasy, and it’s hard to stay awake.
He’s sleeping because he’s having a hard time… At first glance, it seems like the right thing to do, but can sleeping really cure depression?
In fact, not only this person, but many people who are mentally depressed often sleep at home.
In particular, it is often seen in people who are depressed and take time off from work to recuperate at home.
But many people are getting worse.
“If I sleep, will it heal?”
“Isn’t that what you mean by home treatment?”
You may say, but as long as you see the results, sleeping is not the correct answer.
So why does sleeping make it worse?
Here are some reasons why it gets worse when you sleep:
I lie down because it hurts when I’m awake
When you sleep, you naturally don’t use your muscles, so you lose muscle mass.
Losing muscle mass makes it harder to stay awake
Then you sleep more often
Then you lose even more muscle mass, making it even harder to stay awake.
Then it becomes more and more like sleeping
This is called a negative loop.
“But if you sleep, you’ll recover soon, won’t you?”
Some people say that, but it doesn’t work.
If you sleep all the time, the sympathetic nerve, which is one of the autonomic nerves, will not rise.
This is the big problem.
“But for depression, it’s fine if the parasympathetic nervous system goes up, right?”
It is not well known, but the parasympathetic nerve is a system that does not rise unless the sympathetic nerve rises.
In other words, the parasympathetic nerves at night can only rise as much as the sympathetic nerves rise during the day.
If you sleep all the time during the day, the parasympathetic nerves at night will not rise, so the quality of sleep will decline and you will spend days with almost no change in physical condition when you wake up in the morning.
Therefore, people who sleep all the time have weak sympathetic nerves and parasympathetic nerves.
It is the autonomic nervous system that determines our physical condition.
The body can only recover by increasing the power of the autonomic nerves.
So what should we do?
It’s good to increase the sympathetic nerves during the day.
The sympathetic nervous system is at its highest when you move your body.
At least stay up.
And please move your body because anything is fine.
You can wander around the house, do gymnastics, or swing your limbs.
Please move your body anyway.
If you try it, you’ll understand that it’s easier to move than to sit still.
Once you understand this, you will be more active.
Then the parasympathetic nerves at night will increase at the same time, so you will be able to sleep well.
Then the next day you will feel a little better.
It will make it easier for you to move your body during the day.
Then you will sleep better.
This is called a positive loop.
If you come this far, your depression will definitely get better.
Please try the challenge.
