Our Active & fit-Tips for you

Sleeping Success Formula 4-7-8

A little trick to fall asleep much quicker is to breath in through your nose for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds and breath out through your mouth for eight seconds. Repeat that a couple of times and this exercise will help you breath calmly and relax, which ultimately will help you fall asleep.

You’ve got your back!

Your back hurts? Your muscles are tensed and you are experiencing a lack of concentration? Stand with your back to the edge of a stable table and touch it with your hands. Take a few steps forward until you have reached a position where you can slowly lower your upper body. Lower it and push yourself up again. Repeat the exercise for about 2 minutes and your back will relax.

Take it from the sandman

You roll around in bed and just can't find any rest? Sprinkle a few drops of rose oil on a cotton ball and place it near your pillow. You will fall asleep comfortably.
