Well being and sleep

Many of us lead a life at full speed and rarely take the time to stop. This is not without consequences for the quality of our sleep and, ultimately, for our health.

Any healthy lifestyle starts with your own well-being

Relaxation: when our breathing influences our brain

Breathing exercises are one of the most common techniques for learning to relax and unwind on a daily basis.

For some, these exercises are tedious and difficult to perform. For others, they are a real support to relax … and even to sleep, lying on your mattress at night! Neuroscience is taking a close look at the link between our neural circuits and our breathing. Breathing would influence our brain activity, which would explain why deep breaths and a slow breath would help relieve stress and anxiety.

Well-being: three good habits to adopt

To reconnect with a healthier lifestyle, efforts are simpler than you think. Certain habits known as “well-being” also have an impact on sleep:

  • Food: overly rich and unbalanced meals can be felt in the quality of your night. Sleeping better also involves nutrition and rather than repeat detox cures, favor a healthy diet over the long term.
  • A little sport: we know that a sedentary life is not necessarily good for the metabolism. You are not forced to run a marathon, but playing a gentle sport, such as walking or yoga, once or twice a week in the late afternoon can help improve your sleep.
  • Time for yourself: if you do not have the time and the means for a Zen retreat or a thalassotherapy stay, read a good book, meditate for a few minutes a day or find some of these little things of everyday life which contribute to our happiness helps to get back to basics. And when you feel better about yourself, you sleep better.

Our modern rhythms make us lead a busy life. To enjoy it for a long time, let’s take care of ourselves!
