One of my friend used to tell me that sleep late will eventually suffer of Liver disease or sickness. I know my sleeping routine is bad partly due to my work. No doubt late sleep may affect my health in long term. Still I managed to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sufficient sleep for years. Moreover it’s not a problem to me I guess.
But in Chinese “meridian” circulation system said our body has a “circadian clock” from 1am to 3am that schedule to detoxify and process the debris from our liver. Since late sleep during that hour may cause damage to the liver. I Think I am forced to choose between earlier sleeping method and stop working late to start a regular routine for beauty and health sake. That I promised myself I will do so and need to make it as a good sleeping habit. First thing first, is to banish my TV, works and computer out of bedroom then. Hopefully.
