Lack of sleep before the first working day after the New Year holidays will help you quickly establish your sleep pattern. Mikhail Poluektov, associate professor of the Department of Nervous Diseases and Neurosurgery of the First Moscow State Medical University (MGMU) named after Sechenov, Head of the Sleep Medicine Department of the Clinic of Nervous Diseases named after Kozhevnikov of the University Clinical Hospital 3, Mikhail Poluektov, told the Moscow City News Agency about this.
“There are no proven recommendations, except for the recommendation that one should suffer one night before the working day - that is, sleep less. The very next evening you will be able to enter the normal mode, you will be pulled to go to bed earlier in the evening. Usually the body adjusts very well to the new regime, even as a result of one night of limited sleep,”said Poluektov.
He added that it will be possible to "catch up" the missing hours next weekend. “Of course, at first, a person will experience some craving for sleep, because it is usually not possible to completely compensate for the lack of sleep overnight. But usually no one suffers from this, because people are used to limiting themselves in sleep on weekdays. Here, too, there will be nothing out of the ordinary - you can just sleep on the very first weekend,”Poluektov explained.
