LEARNING TO SLEEP WELL LEADS TO A BETTER LIFESTYLE
Sleep is an essential activity for our bodies, just like eating or drinking.
The quantity and quality of sleep affects our physical and mental health.
A good night’s sleep encourages the regeneration of our bodies and helps us feel more at peace with ourselves. On the contrary, an insufficient or poor quality sleep can alter the metabolism, damage the body’s immune system and make it almost impossible to concentrate during the day.
