Meiyang Chang shares his sleep secrets with Viraj Sawant.
My workout includes an extended session of swimming and running. The workout goes on for about an hour or so. It’s difficult to find time to sleep in this hectic city. In order to achieve our goals, we lose our sleep. We compromise on the most important activity. Doctors tell you that it’s important for the skin. And to keep yourself healthy you have to sleep approximately 7-8 hours. I have been gifted with this unique power to fall asleep at any given moment.
It is important as it helps you maintain your mental health and helps you to stay alert. Sleep is capable of refreshing and repairing all the torn muscles. I was working on this film which was to be shot only in the night, from 7pm to 7am. It was exhausting because your body clock turns upside down. How ever much you try to sleep in the day, it cannot compensate for the night sleep. While travelling, I try to sleep on the bus, in the car or on the flight. Also, sometimes, I lose my sleep if I’m am listening to good music or reading a good graphic novel. These things grip you and you don’t want to leave them unfinished.
I had an issue with my back, so I prefer using a firm mattress. It supports all the back muscles. And I use a medium thick pillow for the neck.
