Getting enough sleep is important for heart health
Wu Qingyu, Academician of the International Eurasian Academy of Sciences, Member of the Standing Committee of the Asian Society of Cardiovascular Surgery, Deputy Chairman of the Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery Branch of the Chinese Medical Association, Executive Deputy Dean of the First Affiliated Hospital of Tsinghua University, and Director of the Heart Center.
Similar to most medical experts, Professor Wu Qingyu, a well-known expert in cardiac surgery and director of the Heart Center of the First Affiliated Hospital of Tsinghua University, lives like a “ascetic monk”-his work is arranged full: Dangerous surgery begins at 9 o’clock.The next station is often ten hours a day; do not eat or drink at noon to avoid going to the toilet; after surgery, wait for the patient’s condition to stabilize before returning home.
In addition, there is a lot of work in academic, scientific research, and teaching.
Every day, Wu Qingyu treats critically ill patients from all over the country, ranging from infants in babies to elderly people in their 80s. The condition is often beyond imagination.
But Wu Qingyu said, “I like to fight against incurable diseases. They are like my opponents, which constantly stimulate my fighting spirit. My job is to regenerate those strangely shaped hearts.
To complete this career better, you must first have a healthy and strong heart.
“” Because I have a lot of work throughout the day, I ca n’t even take care of lunch at lunch, so breakfast is especially important to me.
“Wu Qingyu said.
He gets up at 6 o’clock every morning and drinks a glass of boiling water first, which can defecate, reduce blood viscosity, and benefit heart health.
Then start eating early, including soy milk, eggs and staple foods, which have both carbohydrates and protein, not only a reasonable diet, but also provide enough energy.
Although lunch cannot be guaranteed to be eaten on time every day, he has high requirements for lunch-it should be based on crude fiber, light and protein.
Wu Qingyu likes to eat seafood. He said that it is rich in calcium and potassium, which can not only supplement calcium, but also lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of thrombosis in the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular.
“As for dinner, because I came home too late and I was going to bed soon, I ate only coarse grains and vegetarian dishes.
“Wu Qingyu rarely eats animal feces. He only eats seven full meals, and the rest is supplemented with fruits and vegetables.
He never smokes, rarely drinks alcohol, occasionally entertains and only drinks a moderate amount of red wine.
As a cardiac surgery expert, Wu Qingyu struggles with death every day to fight for the patient’s life. The pressure is very high, so he has a unique self-decompression method to maintain a good mood.
“When you are upset, you must not be in your heart. You need to communicate more with you. Sometimes talking to friends and laughing can relieve a lot of stress.
When you are upset, take time out and breathe in the fresh air to relax your tight nerves and feel refreshed.
Wu Qingyu said, “Whether it is young people or the elderly, we must avoid emotional excitement, because joy and sorrow can cause blood vessel constriction, increase blood pressure and increase the burden on the heart.
On the other hand, if your heart is calm and calm, you will continue to benefit your heart health.
“Voracious sleep is important for heart health.
Wu Qingyu said: “I think the human body is like a battery. After a day of mental and physical consumption, the battery has basically returned to zero by night.
Fortunately, my sleep was good. A good night’s sleep is equivalent to excess electricity, and I can participate in the battle the next day.
To ensure the quality of sleep, a good attitude is the most important. Maintaining a normal heart will make you calm.
Before going to bed every day, I will review my day’s work like a movie, so that today’s things will be done today, and tomorrow’s things will be planned early and methodically.
“The study believes that obesity is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease, so you must control yourself not to be too fat.
Wu Qingyu said, “In fact, I don’t have special time to exercise, but the nature of my work determines that I need to stand on the operating table all the year round and rarely sit down.
My long-term excessiveness has kept my weight better, which is an invisible exercise.
Also, I like to walk quickly and try not to be cumbersome wherever I can walk.
It was these habits that helped me maintain a standard weight.
