4. GOOD REST
Melatonin is the sleep hormone, but you should know that it activates the immune system playing a role in the repair of all kinds of injuries and infections.
Tips to secrete better levels of melatonin:
- Minimize exposure to artificial light 2-3 hours before going to bed. If you can at night use the light of the fireplace, candles or a red light.
- Do not eat food that contains sugars (carbohydrates). Sugars reduce sleep performance.
- Do not engage in vigorous physical activity 2-3 hours before bedtime.
- Try to sleep an average of 8h per day. According to studies by Matthew Walker, the time slot from 11pm to 7am is the best for sleeping.
5. MANAGE STRESS
Chronic stress depresses the body’s immune response. That is why we recommend that you take control of your thoughts and emotions.
Yoga and mindfulness are good practices to relax the body and mind. Take five minutes each day to practice your Gratitude state. Think about each of these things that you are thankful for. If you practice it daily, you will automatically see that you will be good at appreciating the opportunities and the beautiful details that life offers you. You will be the type of person who sees the glass half full instead of half empty because you will keep in mind all these positive things that happen to you every day and you will constantly have a heart full of love.
