From the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, spring sleepiness is just a physiological phenomenon in which the human body cannot adapt to the change of the seasons temporarily, and changes in cerebral blood flow occur.
The human brain only accounts for 2% of the body’s weight, but the blood needed for it accounts for 20% of the heart’s blood flow, and the oxygen consumption is 30% of the body’s total.
In the cold winter, under the regulation of the central nervous system, the human body’s capillaries contract and blood flow is relatively reduced. The sweat glands and pores are also closed to prevent excessive dispersion and ensure adequate blood flow to the brain.
By the time of spring light exposure, skin blood vessels gradually expanded, sweat glands and pores also opened, and skin blood flow increased.
