Leck of sleep , Chinese young people feel depressed

 According to a Chinese Sleep Research Society (CSRS) report, it takes Chinese people now two to three extra hours to fall asleep. The epidemic over the past year has caused sleep disorders to spread to more than 300 million Chinese. People are spending more time at home over the last year due to the epidemic. However, the average time to fall asleep is now two to three hours longer, according to CCTV.

Young Chinese workers are more likely to prioritize leisure time than sleep after long work hours, even though it is unhealthy. This behavior is a result of what?

Rao used to stay up late surfing the web, reading the news, and watching videos online until the early hours of the morning. source

Rao was engaged in what the Chinese call 'baofuxing' or'revenge bedtime procrastination'. , which can also be translated to'retaliatory staying awake late', was quickly spread on Twitter after a post from journalist Daphne K Lee. The phenomenon is when people who are unable to control their daytime lives refuse to go to bed early to feel more free in the late-night hours.

It is not known where exactly this term originated. Although the first mention was made by this reporter in a blog posted on November 2018, it is likely that its origins predate this date. Guangdong man, the author of the post, wrote that he felt "participated" to another person during work hours and could only "find him" once he was home and able to lie down. He wrote that he suffered from procrastination at night, and it was a sad thing. However, he felt that he gained a little freedom.

Know the cost of living in China

Shanghai was recently named the most expensive city in Asia for expats. However, transport is inexpensive there (0.57 cents per metro ticket on average, 1.85 € the minimum daytime taxi ride), as is the food if you adapt to the local food. Apart from Shanghai, Beijing or Hong-Kong, you can find well-equipped and decent accommodation for € 200 per month. Overall, life in China is cheaper than in Europe. On the other hand, it is necessary to be well informed about the costs of insurance, schools, health, which can quickly become very high.

Generally, expatriates have a higher salary than a Chinese in the same position as well as many advantages: company housing, medical coverage and school fees for their children paid by the company. However, more and more foreigners are hired under local employment contracts, and work under the same conditions as a Chinese employee. Under local contract, your vacation days, your working hours will therefore be the same as an employee. Chinese Taxation is not the same according to an expatriate contract or a local contract.
