Lyu Xinwen, reporter of sleep matters a lot. The quality of a person’s sleep is related to his physical and mental health for a lifetime.In China, many people have sleep disorders, especially for young people, staying up late is common.According to the 2022 National Health Insight Report (THE report) recently released by Dingxiang Doctors, 38 percent of people go to bed after 0 am, which means one in every three people stay up until the wee hours of the morning.So what exactly is stealing our sleep?While 78 per cent of us have trouble sleeping, more than 80 per cent crave a good night’s sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep is a common aspiration, but poor sleep is also a common dilemma.While 83 percent of people in the study said they expected to have “very healthy” sleep, 78 percent said they had trouble sleeping.According to the report, 52 percent of people fall asleep between 23:00 and 24:00, 38 percent fall asleep after 24:00, and 20 percent of them go to bed after 2am, making late sleeping quite common.On the one hand, many people choose to stay up late actively by playing mobile phones and watching videos, and on the other hand, it is caused by sleep disorders.When it comes to sleep disturbances, 75 percent of respondents said they would take action to deal with it, but only 8 percent said they felt it was working.There are a variety of approaches, and melatonin is one of the most popular solutions.While people often complain that their work interferes with their sleep, this report shows that people who don’t work tend to have worse quality of sleep than most people with more demanding jobs.People with stable jobs, such as civil servants and teachers, scored higher than average in their sleep self-ratings, while high-intensity workers, such as programmers and designers, scored between 6 and 6.4, the report said.On the other hand, stay-at-home mothers, unemployed and unemployed people had a self-rated sleep score of less than six, or even failed.Experts believe that for stay-at-home mothers and unemployed people, psychological insecurity, lack of long-term planning, lack of regularity in life and lack of social contact, these unstable psychological states and the ensuing negative emotions are more likely to be reflected in sleep, resulting in sleep disturbances.Xu Hao, an attending physician in the neurosurgery department of the First Affiliated Hospital of THE University of Science and Technology of China, said, “Poor sleep in a short period of time is almost always affected by adverse life events.In addition, people always have the psychological implication that I didn’t sleep well, so it’s ok to be sleepy this morning, it’s OK to be distracted, and it’s ok to do badly on a test because I didn’t sleep well!This kind of practice actually gives oneself too much pressure, it is a vicious circle.So don’t look at your watch, don’t pay too much attention to sleep, even when you’re not asleep, bed rest can be enough to restore most of your energy.”If you sleep poorly for a long time, you can correct it by exercising, eating right, and so on.”In addition to data on sleep, the 2022 National Health Insights report provides a detailed look at people’s beliefs, behaviors and spending habits in 2021 in terms of diet, exercise, psychology, skin care, oral and medical care.It is reported that, as one of the largest and most influential public health survey reports in China, the “2022 National Health Insight Report” released by Dingxiang Doctor has conducted a large-scale survey on national health for four consecutive years, with each sample size reaching tens of thousands of people. It is the largest private nationwide health status scan in China.Responsible editor: Cui Xuan Photo editor: Shi Jiahui Proofread: Zhang Yan
