Only Chinese can take a nap anywhere?

2020-12-30 | National Pavilion Original |

It’s really bad for foreigners to take a nap.



If you observe carefully, you will find an interesting phenomenon.

The quietest time in China, except for midnight, there is noon.

Don’t be surprised, this seemingly noisiest time is actually quieter than many times.

Because a ceremony unique to the East is going on all over the country:

Take a nap.

The posture can be described as a fairy fighting.

Usually a park bench, some people may only think of sitting and sleeping.

But no matter how we care about the three seven twenty-one, then the body is lying up.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a bed. No one loves it.

Be afraid of heat in summer, when you lie down in the pond, the sky is the quilt and the ground is the bed.

Catch a ray of sunshine at the end of summer while taking a nap, and you will catch the whole summer.

In the afternoon nap, the Chinese practiced one sentence perfectly:

"No conditions, then create conditions."

There is no sleepiness or difficulty, only brave napping people.

If there is no condition at home, then spread a straw mat and put a paper sack.

No matter the meat stall has a peculiar smell, it will be another world when you sleep.

Usually, the truck should not be entered by strangers. In the nap time, it must be sheltered from the wind and rain when it is difficult.

No matter how simple the environment is, it can't stop a heart who wants to take a nap.

It can be said that Chinese people have an obsession with taking a nap.

Street, railings, electric cars... We can sleep in the morning anywhere.

To talk about tracing the source, we have to start with the doll.

In our culture, we always pursue everything from a doll.

So when we were in kindergarten or elementary school, we were forced to take a nap.

In some places, not taking a nap is also classified as a violation of discipline.

For the energetic us, it is simply a nightmare.

Either open your eyes in a daze or make trouble everywhere.

Later I realized that when I was young and didn't understand the gift of fate, I secretly marked the deadline.

At the beginning, children who did not cherish nap time grew up to become workers, and they understood how precious the days when kindergartens and elementary schools were forced to take naps.

It is gratifying that when we are very regretful, the new generation of primary school students has been influenced by the high-intensity nap culture.

Take a warning, not only to take a nap, but to sleep soundly.

So, the nap culture stimulated the potential of elementary school students.

Unlike us, they abandon the traditional siesta.

Instead, it was a nap desk and chair invented by a primary school student.

It is made by repeated polishing, the desks and chairs easily become beds, no longer perfunctory nap, and completely bid farewell to the numbness of the hands.

This is the attitude of the Chinese towards a nap:

Pious, persistent.

Even if the language is different, the customs are different, and the habits are different, everyone is surprisingly consistent in the matter of nap, and they are all contributing modestly.

You can stay up at night, and you can never take a nap.



To be honest, in China, nap is already a national sport that crosses the gap between rich and poor, does not choose environmental equipment, and perfectly integrates into various places.

The Chinese people's obsession with nap nap is not fanatical.

But you must have never thought about it. For foreigners, this is a very distant vocabulary.

Someone once investigated foreigners’ views on nap on the streets abroad.

All the answers are yes, seldom or no nap!

When God created foreigners, he already took away their nap genes.

Even if you don’t take a nap, you’re still alive and well.

Many people remember that they only experienced taking a nap in kindergarten.

Furthermore, the kid who was caught taking a nap was just confused and sitting with his eyes open.

There is a researcher who visits China every year.

Under the kind invitation of the Chinese, they will go to the countryside and take a nap.

But as long as you return to your country, this habit will soon disappear automatically.

It can be said that taking a nap, they really tried their best, but they can’t learn it.

So foreigners have always been amazed by China's extensive and profound napping culture.

For some foreign companies with Chinese people, the style of painting will be surprisingly interesting every noon.

In their view, the Chinese are very talented in this respect.

You can stand up to the strange eyes around you, endure the crazy tapping of the keyboard and other noises, and sleep peacefully in a variety of strange positions.

Even if you are busy with the work at hand, you have to squeeze a few minutes to complete this grand ceremony.

Many media have specifically reported this phenomenon that they seem to be peculiar.

There is a foreigner who traveled across the ocean to work in China. The first time he saw a nap, he was deeply attracted.

At that moment, he took out the camera and snapped it. Since then, he has been out of control.

After 7 years in China, he unlocked various sleeping positions for Chinese people.

Later, I created a website about Chinese nap.

When uploading all the photos and categorizing them into categories, he found that Chinese people come and go only those kinds of sleeping methods.

Soft sleepers, pay attention to lying or leaning on something more conventional, sleep more comfortably.

Hard sleepers have no requirements for peripherals. It is a blessing to be able to sleep.

The last type, group race, taking a nap in groups, no longer lonely sleeping method.

This series is called "Sleeping Chinese" by him.

It was once popular abroad.

Culture output can be seen.



Someone will definitely ask:

"Everyone is human, why do we have to take a nap, foreigners don't use it?"

It's not that we can't.

This matter has to start with the ancestors.

In their dictionary, Zijue 23:00-1:00 is Yin, and midday 11:13 is Yang.

Yin and Yang must be reconciled. After sleeping, you must have a nap on the hour.

Speaking of this, young people will shout: "I don't sleep, it's not the same as taking a nap."

Then start with science.

A human sleep and awakening rhythm experiment has confirmed the two sleepiest periods:

"1AM-4AM, 1AM-4PM at noon."

In other words, our Chinese bodies truly respect science.

Of course, it is also related to our lunch.

Our lunch, rice, noodles, etc. carbohydrate ratio is much higher than that of foreigners.

Therefore, the blood sugar rises more after eating and causes sleepiness.

Succinct and concise, it's all caused by food.

Maybe you still ask, it’s fine if you don’t eat these.

No way!

Foreigners don’t take a nap, and they don’t rely solely on food. They have to start with the baby.

In their knowledge, nap is used to make up for lack of sleep in babies.

So if the child is older, there is no need to take a nap at all.

The school does not set a lunch break, and the company does not set it, which saves time to end get out of class and get off work early.

This also leads from the root cause that foreigners do not have the ability for Chinese to take a nap anywhere.

Even if you are Chinese, it is difficult to pass on the Chinese nap culture after long-term training.

But China is different. Our siesta is as early as the first step. The constitution stipulates that citizens have the right to rest between work.

Major companies know that full sleep is the greatest productivity, and they have given enough nap time, and some even provide nap space.

It can be said that China has eliminated all difficulties for you in terms of nap.

All you have to do is to sleep under the surprised eyes of the foreigner.

When you wake up, surprise all foreigners with more energy.

It's not that I am boasting that a nation that knows how to take a nap and the combination of work and rest will be impossible to defeat by anything.



However, until today, many people still don’t take a nap.

Here, I must speak for this fine tradition that has been passed down for thousands of years.

Passing down the fire, you and I are responsible.

Nap, sleep is not sleep, not lazy, but health in capitals!

As the saying goes, don’t sleep at noon and collapse in the afternoon.

What to eliminate fatigue, protect eyes, relieve brain fatigue, and lower blood pressure is a piece of cake.

It can also reduce the incidence of cardiovascular diseases.

There is a study abroad about children taking a nap.

A follow-up survey of 3000 children found that children who took a nap were happier and more disciplined.

The most important thing is that the results are better.

In other words, in a muddle-headed manner, Chinese children are one step ahead.

Of course, it all depends on how to take a nap.

You know, a nap is like a lottery, and different methods lead to different final results.

Take the traditional way of sleeping on your stomach, this is a very hurtful way of sleeping.

Pressing the arm and face, woke up with numb hands and face.

It may also cause visual impairment, cause gastritis, affect the brain's reaction speed, etc.

It is also harmful to go to bed as soon as you finish lunch.

It is easy to cause indigestion and dizziness.

There are also people who sleep for a long time, they will have sleep inertia, and wake up more sleepy and tired.

If you want to sleep well, just sum it up:

Go to bed 20 minutes after lunch, 25 minutes or so, don’t sleep on your stomach.

Actually, nap is really important for Chinese people.

In addition to health, it is more for life.

Whether it is a big city or a small town, everyone is working hard for firewood, rice, oil and salt.

The rush day after day is exhausting.

The extremely short nap became a relief.

No matter how strange the sleeping position is, it is the most real life.

All are worthy of respect from each of us.

If you can, take a good nap today.

When we wake up, we will go to the outside world to fight monsters together!
