Kanak-Kanak Kurang Tidur Penyebab "Hyperactive"

Satu kajian mencadangkan bahawa kanak-kanak yang tak cukup tidur bakal menghadapi masalah sikap tak terkawal dan juga masalah hyperactive.

Anak-anak antara 7 tahun ke 8 tahun yang tidur dengan cukup selama lebih dari lapan jam sehari dapat menghindari dari menghadapi masalah hyperactive tersebut.

Mungkin ada kebenarannya kerana anak lelaki saya yang hyperactive amat payah untuk tidur, dia paksa untuk berjaga. Kalau tidak di marahi agar segera tidur alamat dia berjaga sehingga lewat malam.

Too little sleep 'can make children hyperactive'

Getting too little sleep can make children more likely to develop behavioural problems and become hyperactive, a new study suggests.

Children sleeping: Too little sleep 'can make children hyperactive'

Youngsters aged between seven and eight who got an average of less than eight hours sleep a night had a higher chance of showing symptoms of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), researchers found.
Researchers believe that ensuring that children get enough sleep could cut their likelihood of developing the condition.
"We were able to show that short sleep duration and sleeping difficulties are related to behavioural symptoms of ADHD, and we also showed that short sleep, per se, increases behavioural symptoms, regardless of the presence of sleeping difficulties", said Dr Juulia Paavonen of the University of Helsinki, who led the study.
Researchers tested how long 280 children slept and compared the results to a series of tests designed to diagnose ADHD.
Those who slept less than 7.7 hours scored higher in tests for hyperactivity and impulsivity than those who slept for longer, the findings, published in the journal Paediatrics, show. None of the children were suffering from sleeping problems.
Dr Paavonen added: "The findings suggest that maintaining adequate sleep schedules among children is likely to be important in preventing behavioural symptoms."
She also called for further research to establish the nature of the link.
Last year experts warned that parents were "too reliant" on drugs like Ritalin to treat the symptoms of ADHD and said that medication should be prescribed only in the most severe cases.
There were 700,000 prescriptions dispensed in England last year for Ritalin and similar drugs, a seven-fold increase in just a decade.
Around three per cent of school-age children in Britain have ADHD and the disorder is also thought to affect around two per cent of adults.

Kes Aminulrasyid - Siapa Salah?

Tertarik membaca komen A Kadir Jasin dalam kes Aminulrasyid yang mati ditembak polis, klik sini untuk membaca komen dalam blognya. Dalam ramai-ramai menyerang polis kerana mungkin bertindak terburu-buru dan tidak profesional, Datuk A Kadir Jasin bertanyakan di mana peranan ibubapa si mangsa dalam mendisiplinkan anak mereka.

Kita boleh menyalahkan ibubapa kerana tidak mengawal anak yang di bawah umur belajar memandu kereta, tetapi sebagaimana salah seorang pembaca berkata, kawan-kawan juga boleh mengajar jika bukan ibubapa yang mengajar memandu. Jadi ada berbagai kemungkinan.

Apakata jika kita salahkan kerajaan yang membenarkan mamak-mamak serta kedai minum lain yang beroperasi 24 jam tanpa had, kenapa mereka rakus sangat mengaut keuntungan. Menggalakkan manusia berjaga di waktu yang sepatutnya manusia berehat.


Kalau tak ada kedai-kedai seumpama itu dan kalau bandar raya menghormati kejadian malam untuk istirehat maka tak adalah remaja yang akan curi keluar dari rumah waktu pagi sebegitu. Tak susahlah sangat ibubapa nak pantau anak-anak mereka.

Jadi yang lebih baik ialah kita salahkan kerajaan daripada salahkan ibubapa, tetapi akan ada juga orang kata yang pilih kerajaan ialah rakyat, jadi kena salahkan rakyatlah, kerana silap pilih kerajaan!!!! siapa mula dulu telur atau ayam?

Kesian kat polis, terkial-kial kepanasan. Agaknya malam itu penembak menggigil mahu membenteras jenayah yang mungkin disangkanya perompak sepertimana kebiasaannya yang mencari mangsa di waktu malam.

Tidur Lama Panjang Umur - Kajian

Majority mereka yang tua dan panjang umur akan memberitahu mereka tidur lama jika ditanya bagaimana aktiviti tidur mereka. Lagi panjang umur mereka lagi lama mereka tidur dalam satu hari.

Tolak faktor kesihatan lain, kajian mencadangkan bahawa mereka yang tidur nyenyak dan lama setiap hari akan hidup lebih lama dari mereka yang tidur sedikit.

Baru-baru ini Malaysia diumumkan akan menjadi negara Tua, iaitu negara yang 15% daripada penduduknya terdiri daripada mereka yang berumur lanjut (saya tak pasti berapa umur yang dikatakan tua, mungkin lebih dari 70 tahun kot?).

Aliran yang ada menunjukkan semakin ramai rakyat Malaysia yang panjang umur, yang memberi maksud kalau ikut kajian ini bahawa semakin ramai rakyat Malaysia yang banyak tidurnya.

Biasanya mereka yang sihat tidak akan menghadapi masalah tidur, mereka yang tidak sihat serta banyak masalah akan menghadapi masalah tak boleh tidur.

Tak tahu mana yang datang dulu, tak boleh tidur sebab banyak masalah lalu pendek umur atau, senang tidur jadi tak ada masalah maka panjang umur???.

Jangan tak ada masalah tapi tak mau tidur sudahlah.

Old age 'could be linked to getting plenty of sleep'

The secret of living to an old age could be linked to getting plenty of sleep, a new study suggests.

Researchers found that those who had lived to be 100 or older were much more likely than younger age groups to sleep for 10 hours or longer a night.
They were also more likely to say that they slept well than those in their 60s and 70s, even after other factors such as health problems were taken into account.
The study was carried out in China, which has the largest population of elderly people in the world.
But researchers believe that the findings are also important for other countries which have increasingly ageing populations, such as Britain.
The study of more than 15,000 pensioners also found that, overall, men were more likely to get better sleep than women.
The volunteers, who included nearly 2,800 people aged 100 or older, were asked to rate how they slept and for how many hours a day, including any naps that they took.
On average, the participants said that they slept for around seven and a half hours a day.
But those who had lived for a century or more slept the most, the researchers found.
They were the least likely to sleep for a short time each day, counted as less than five hours, and almost three times as likely as the other age groups to sleep for 10 hours a day or more.
Researchers believe that a link between overall health, quality of sleep and the chances of living to an old age could be behind the findings.
"Age and health conditions are the two most important factors associated with self-reported sleep quality and duration," said Danan Gu, from Portland State University, in Oregon, who led the study.
Volunteers who said that their health was poor were half as likely to get a good night’s sleep as those who rated themselves in rude health, the findings, published in the journal Sleep, also show.
Although the researchers say that their study did not look directly at the reason why some people live to an old age they believe that the findings mean that we should not worry that an ageing population will mean an increase in sleeping problems.
In the past, doctors have warned that people can find it more difficult to sleep as they get older.
But Mr Gu said: "The majority of healthy (older people) could experience satisfactory sleep quality.
"Sleep problems at oldest-old ages likely arise from a variety of physiological and psychosocial factors rather than ageing." `
Experts estimate that the numbers of elderly people in Britain will rise dramatically over the next few decades.
The number of people over 85 alone is predicted to increase by around one third by 2020, leaving almost two million in that age bracket.

Bersenam Di Taman Menyihatkan Otak - Kajian

Dengan hanya 5 minit berjalan-jalan atau bersenam di kawasan hijau seperti taman bunga dapat meransang kesihatan otak yang lebih baik. Demikian rumusan daripada satu kajian yang telah di jalankan baru-baru ini.

Kesan yang paling ketara dapat dirasakan oleh mereka yang muda juga mereka yang mengalami tekanan otak.

Kesan kebaikannya akan meningkat lebih lagi apabila kawasan tersebut mempunyai sungai atau tasik yang kebiruan. Demikian menurut kajian.

Bagi mereka yang menghadapi tekanan hidup, ambil sedikit masa untuk bersiar di taman yang penuh dengan kehijauan. Lebih elok jika taman tersebut mempunyai tasik atau sungai. Ini akan dapat menyihatkan badan anda di samping dapat melegakan tekanan minda anda.

Lebih baik lagi jika anda memilih rumah untuk anda tinggal di kawasan hijau seperti di kampung, tentu anda akan lebih sihat dan ceria.

Walaubagaimanapun jika semua deria anugerah Allah yang ada pada anda tidak digunakan untuk mengecapi dan menikmati serta mensyukuri segala kehijauan dan kebiruan alam, tak ada apa yang dapat membantu anda.

'Green' exercise quickly 'boosts mental health'

Oak tree on a hill
Green space is important for mental health
Just five minutes of exercise in a "green space" such as a park can boost mental health, researchers claim.
There is growing evidence that combining activities such as walking or cycling with nature boosts well-being.
In the latest analysis, UK researchers looked at evidence from 1,250 people in 10 studies and found fast improvements in mood and self-esteem.
The study in the Environmental Science and Technology journal suggested the strongest impact was on young people.
The research looked at many different outdoor activities including walking, gardening, cycling, fishing, boating, horse-riding and farming in locations such as a park, garden or nature trail.
The biggest effect was seen within just five minutes.
With longer periods of time exercising in a green environment, the positive effects were clearly apparent but were of a smaller magnitude, the study found.
Looking at men and women of different ages, the researchers found the health changes - physical and mental - were particularly strong in the young and the mentally-ill.
Green and blue
A bigger effect was seen with exercise in an area that also contained water - such as a lake or river.
Study leader Jules Pretty, a researcher at the University of Essex, said those who were generally inactive, or stressed, or with mental illness would probably benefit the most from "green exercise".
 We would like to see all doctors considering exercise as a treatment where appropriate 
Paul Farmer, Mind
"Employers, for example, could encourage staff in stressful workplaces to take a short walk at lunchtime in the nearest park to improve mental health."
He also said exercise programmes outdoors could benefit youth offenders.
"A challenge for policy makers is that policy recommendations on physical activity are easily stated but rarely adopted widely."
Paul Farmer, chief executive of mental health charity Mind, said the research is yet further evidence that even a short period of green exercise can provide a low cost and drug-free therapy to help improve mental wellbeing.
"It's important that people experiencing depression can be given the option of a range of treatments, and we would like to see all doctors considering exercise as a treatment where appropriate."
Mind runs a grant scheme for local environmental projects to help people with mental illness get involved in outdoor activities.
