Best Smart Watch For Sleep Monitoring

Many people suffer from insomnia as they age. It is generally believed that "the older a person is, the less he sleeps", and inability to sleep is just a phenomenon of getting older.
The reasons why the elderly do not sleep well are as follows:
1. Biological clock changes
As we grow older, the secretion of growth hormone in the body decreases and the secretion of melatonin in the body decreases, and people's sleep patterns will also change. The biological clock of most elderly people will advance, and many of them will feel sleepy at six or seven o'clock in the evening , and will wake up at three or four in the morning, which will lead to sleep disturbance and imbalance.
2. The body consumes less energy
Since the elderly have basically retired and do not need to do any physical work, they will not feel tired and less likely to feel sleepy when the energy consumption of the body is not large. Especially for the elderly who take a nap, they are more likely to be unable to sleep at night .
3. Disease or drug side effects
The organs of the elderly body gradually degenerate, and they are vulnerable to various diseases. Physical discomfort caused by cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, migraines, etc. will lead to sleep disorders in the elderly. In addition, long-term use of some drugs, such as the more common glucocorticoids, thyroid hormones, and chlorpromazine, can lead to insomnia.
4. Increased nocturia
Some elderly people have prostate problems or a decline in the function of the urinary system, and there will be increased nocturia, making it difficult for them to fall asleep again after waking up.
5. Other factors
The surrounding sounds are too noisy and the room is too bright, which makes the sleeping environment of the elderly poor. Worrying and missing children too much will lead to depression, which will also lead to sleep problems for the elderly.
These habits can help improve sleep quality
1. To develop good sleep habits
For the elderly, it is recommended to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, and keep sleep as regular as possible to form a virtuous circle.
2. Be sure to relax before going to bed
Before going to bed, don't watch some more intense film and television dramas, competitive games and other programs, you can listen to some soothing music to let the brain enter a quiet state.
3. Do not eat too much or be hungry before going to bed
Do not drink some irritating beverages such as coffee and strong tea. You can drink a glass of milk to help sleep.
Most elderly people reduce the amount of exercise due to inconvenient movements, but in fact, proper exercise can increase the energy consumption of the body and make the body in a state of fatigue, so that they can fall asleep quickly at night.
It is normal for the elderly to sleep poorly. It can be adjusted by adjusting the environment, mood, and moderate exercise. BP Smartwatch can monitor your sleep status, and can also measure various indicators of your body, such as heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and so on.
