The end of summer is approaching. No more sunbathing, late nights, etc. We don’t want to think about going back to school and the rhythm that will have to be resumed in a few weeks’ time. However, it is in your best interest to gradually resume the good habits of the year for a peaceful start to school; we tell you everything in this article.
A smooth return starts with:
A good night’s sleep
In order to get back into a good rhythm, it is essential not to neglect your sleep. Between lockdown and holidays, nights were often shorter.
Going to bed at a fixed time (and not too late!) a few days before returning to work will make the transition easier. For those who find it difficult to get back to going to sleep before midnight, opt for restful activities such as reading or meditation exercises. Above all, no screen two hours before going to bed, as blue light blocks melatonin, the sleep hormone, and prevents us from falling asleep peacefully.
Sleeping aids are available for anyone who wants to save time: Dreamer is a device that helps you fall asleep in less than 15 minutes thanks to red light and two programmes designed in collaboration with the European Sleep Center. Cardiac coherence exercise brings you to a relaxed state and then sleep, while sunset helps you find sleep naturally thanks to its orange shades progressively evolving towards red. Red light is very conducive to sleep because unlike other colours it does not block the secretion of melatonin, the sleep hormone.
Reduce the duration of your lie-ins before returning to a normal routine
As with sleeping, you “gradually” recalculate when you wake up to a more reasonable time to prevent an abrupt change on the big day.
Here too, we have the solution: the Homni smart light clock is perfect for those who have difficulty getting out of bed in the morning. Thanks to its bluish light that reproduces that of sunrise, your body will be ready to wake up gently.
Gradually resume physical activity
Between aperitifs, summer treats and hours spent basking in the sun, it’s not easy to keep in shape. The holidays were not as “healthy” as planned this year!
The return to school in September is often an opportunity to get back on track and resume regular sporting activity. Besides the weight loss goal, physical activity also helps to reduce stress and facilitates a good night’s sleep. Good reasons to (re)start!
And since we are 100% motivated (right?), we can also equip ourselves with Terraillon’s new Master Coach connected scale to monitor the development of our body mass over the long term. Ideal for calculating BMI (Body Mass Index) and setting a weight target, the scale connected to the Wellness Coach Health smartphone app provides you with a dashboard with your data and tracking curves. This is a significant advantage in motivating yourself and achieving your objectives.
