“According to the biorhythms of our body, night is for sleep, so no wonder that on night shifts at work or if you are trying to accomplish a day’s work in the late evening or night, you are more dispersed and allow for more mistakes. This is especially dangerous when working with different machinery and mechanisms, as in the night time, the number of injuries is increasing dramatically. And all because the body at this time should perform quite different functions – rest, “reboot” and get healthier. The most dangerous time is from 22 PM to 4 am. At this time, all reactions are inhibited.
Because, as corny as it sounds, the night is for sleeping. And not only that it comes to avoid accidents and low mood the next day, and also because while we rest, the cells of our body is refreshed, rejuvenated. In the first half of the night, for example, allocates the maximum quantity of growth hormone, which occurs due to cellular reproduction and growth. At the same time starts the process of cleansing the tissues of the body,” – said the expert.
