Optimal Sleep


“From 11 to 1 is the best time to sleep according to Chinese medicine”



This piece of advice came from my mother.  The original source of this advice came from relatives that informed my mother after hearing about studies based off of old medicinal practices.    According to some of these studies, while none of them specifically pick a time that is most effective for sleep, they tend to say that later in the night, it becomes more difficult to wake up.



What caught my attention was the matter of how this piece of advice was spreading on.  With no proof or need to verify the claims in the statement, it seems to spread to different members of our family to continue to get passed on.
