The arrival of spring is linked to the change of time in order to take advantage of more daylight during the day. This change in our timetable affects our biorhythms, which are the rhythms of life that measure our physical, emotional and mental response to the events of our day-to-day lives, but… how can we combat these rhythms? Yes, with sport!!!
Changes in biorhythms are the cause of the imbalances that affect our daily performance. Our lifestyle habits are delayed and with it our usual bedtime. As a result, we sleep less hours, the sun rises earlier and the body wakes up earlier. But with the extra daylight hours we get, our body is active for a longer period of time. This is why it is necessary to normalise the timetable and adapt as well as possible. How? Take a look at these tips…
- Experts recommend not to drink energy drinks and drinks that contain caffeine or theine, because these disturb our sleep.
- Practising sport is the perfect antidote to this series of imbalances. Exercising will lead to a better reconciliation of sleep, better general well-being and a better adaptation to the new timetable. Although it is true that it isn’t recommended to do sport before going to sleep, as this will shake us up and activate our metabolism. Doing sport in the morning or in the afternoon, but early in the evening, will help us to fall asleep and rest better.
- Keep a good bedtime at night, avoiding the use of screens and blue light before going to sleep.
