  熬夜这个话题已经成为当代社会的历史遗留问题,有不少的大学生加入了熬夜大军中。过多熬夜可以说百害而无一利,除了会引起脱发、长痘、变胖外,还会引发不少隐匿疾病。今天,小编为大家提供几个快速入睡的好方法。

  2018年上半年全国大学英语四六级考试于6月16日进行,新浪教育24小时全程关注,为你带来第一手四六级考试资讯。以下为英语四级阅读详解:

  苏格兰一座小岛上的居民打算购买当地一幢在冷战期间被用来做监视观察的楼房并将其改造成供游客聆听鲸鱼歌声的景点。以下是
Colin Blane 的报道。

  一、记单词

  Passage One

  很多老师都强调过早上和晚上记忆效果最好,因为没有睡前干扰和睡后干扰。建议大家在晚上睡不着的情况下,尝试背一下单词,或是进行一些脑力活动,大脑感觉到疲乏了,自然很快就会入眠。

  Questions 46 to 50 are based on the following passage。

  When the top secret radio and radar station was established on the
headland at Aird Uig 60 years ago, it was part of Nato’s early warning
system against Soviet submarines and aircraft。 Now the Ministry of
Defence has no further use for the derelict buildings and the windswept
clifftop site。

  二、睡前喝酸奶或是热牛奶

  Losing your ability to think and remember is pretty scary。 We know
the risk of dementia (痴呆) increases with age。 But if you have
memory slips, you probably needn’t worry。 There are pretty clear
differences between signs of dementia and age-related memory loss。

  But local people are convinced the old base could help transform the
economy of the area。 Where Aird Uig once listened out for possible
enemy attack, it’s hoped a hydrophone could be placed in the sea to
pick up the sound of whales。

  不过,在这里提醒一下,千万不要喝完牛奶就去睡觉,最好在睡觉前两个小时,这样才更好发挥助眠的效果。不管是备战四六级还是其他一些考试,身体消耗量会很大,建议大家平时注意多摄取一些蛋白质,或是维生素一类的,均衡搭配饮食。

  After age 50, it’s quite common to have trouble remembering the
names of people, places and thing quickly, says Dr。 Kirk Daffner of
Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston。

  There are plans for a visitor centre, with a dark skies night
observatory。 Other attractions include unexplored sea caves and cliff
climbs which have never been tackled。

  三、睡前泡澡或是泡脚

  The brain ages just like the rest of the body。 Certain parts
shrink, especially areas in the brain that are important to learning,
memory and planning。 Changes in brain cells can affect communication
between different regions of the brain。 And blood flow can be reduced
as blood vessels narrow。

  If it goes ahead, it will be one of Scotland’s smallest and most
unusual community buy-outs。

  在睡眠质量不好的情况下,建议大家可以尝试睡前泡个热水澡或是用热水泡泡脚,通过高温打开毛孔,促进心脑血管的血液循环,尤其是对于一些脊椎经常疼痛的同学来说。除了这些,还能放松心情,缓解一天的疲劳,有助于提高睡眠质量以及第二天的学习效果。

  Forgetting the name of an actor in a favorite movie, for example,
is nothing to worry about。 But if you forget the plot of the movie or
don’t remember even seeing it, that’s far more concerning, Daffner
says。

  四、熏香

  When you forget entire experiences, he says, that’s “a red flag
that something more serious may be involved。” Forgetting how to operate
a familiar object like a microwave oven, or forgetting how to drive to
the house of a friend you’ve visited many times before can also be signs
of something going wrong。

  关于熏香,因人而异,有些人喜欢熏香,而有些人不太喜欢香的东西。一般来说,茉莉花,薰衣草,迷迭香之类的植物都有助眠的作用,现在更多人喜欢在家里用香薰灯放芳香精油的方式来助眠,一方面是鲜花太难打理,另外一方面是芳香精油比较容易储存也卫生方便,是通过嗅觉唤起记忆,调节各个器官的互动,从而达到助眠目的的。

  But even then, Daffner says, people shouldn’t panic.There are many
things that can cause confusion and memory loss, including health
problems like temporary stoppage of breathing, high blood pressure, or
depression, as well as medications like antidepressants。 Even
over-the-counter remedies like antihistamines can contribute to memory
loss。

  And the best defense against memory loss is to try to prevent it by
building up your brain’s cognitive (认知的) reserve, Daffner says。

  “Read books, go to movies, take on new hobbies or activities that
force one to think in novel ways,” he says。 In other words, keep your
brain busy and working。 And also get physically active, because
exercise is a known brain booster。
