116. WE SHOULD NOT LIE DOWN ON BARE FLOOR
- Our body’s temperature is 37 degree centigrade. If we lie down on the bare floor, because of the coolness of the ground, our body’s temperature will come down. Thus, our body will be forced to use the saved sugar and oxygen more than the normal in order to increase the body’s temperature. As a result, the sugar called glycogen stored in t h e m u s c l e s i n t h e b o dy w i l l b e unnecessarily spent away. Moreover, the lungs also will be forced to work more.
- Thus, there is a possibility of getting diseases such as wheezing, asthma, etc. Therefore, we should never lie down on bare floor. Always spread a bed spread or a blanket and then lie down over it. When we do exercises such as meditation, yoga, etc. we should never do these exercises on bare floor.
