Healthy sleep - wake up refreshed
Rested, full of energy and with new strength ...
This is how we feel after a restful night. Because "sleep is to a man what winding up is to a clock", as the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer puts it in a nutshell.
However, more and more people have problems falling asleep
or finding restful sleep. The causes are social phenomena such as an accelerated working world, increasing burdens due to stress and a lack of work-life balance. Even on holiday, it is then often not possible to find the desired rest. That is why many Wellness-Hotels & Resorts place special emphasis on a healthy sleeping environment for their guests.
At the Parkhotel am Soier See in Upper Bavaria, guests can have a sleep diagnosis carried out in their hotel room with the help of a small device and have their sleep profile evaluated. For this purpose, a sleep analyser records the depth of sleep and thus allows conclusions to be drawn about the quality of sleep and possible sleep disorders.
At home, for example, you can take a gentle evening stroll to
find peace and quiet after a hectic day. These and other relaxing evening rituals have a sleep-promoting effect. It also helps to keep a close eye on what eating habits have consequences for your night's rest. Too much alcohol, heavy, sour or spicy food can lead to a restless night. And last but not least, the choice of a suitable mattress and appropriate bedding is also important.
Sleeping well in the wellness hotel
That is why many wellness hotels offer a "pillow menu" so that guests can choose the pillow that is most comfortable for them. At the Jammertal Golf & Spa Resort in southern Münsterland, the electricity circuit in the room can be completely switched off for a healthy night's sleep.
Our Healthy sleep-Tips for youMore sleep for better food decisions
We tend to eat sweeter foods that are high in fat when tired, as the part of the brain that is responsible for making good food decisions is rather slow when we do not get enough sleep. So definitely make sure you get enough sleep to ensure healthier food habits.
You are not a morning person? Then here is a tip for you: Welcome the day at an open window. Get up, open the window, breathe in 40 times - and exhale again. When inhaling, raise your arms and stand on your tiptoes. Lower your arms as you exhale. This exercise transports oxygen into the cells, which awakens and is great for fat burning.
After a good night out, the next morning can feel a bit rough. If you do not want to miss out on your cocktail or beer, you should chew on raw ginger before going to bed. The essential oils help breaking down the alcohol better.
