Komvida tip #8 for quarantine days

#I stay at home but sleep like a baby

Mums and dads... you're going to love this post :) Just like having a healthy diet, good hydration or regular physical exercise, it is essential to sleep well for our wellbeing as it contributes to our physical and mental health.

Lack of sleep has many side effects and, in the circumstances in which we find ourselves, it can affect our mood. If we don't get enough sleep we will be more irritable and this will affect our behaviour and our relationship with others.

Well, so that this doesn't happen and so that in these days of recruitment you sleep like a dormouse and get to sleep on the first try, we offer you a series of recommendations by age... Here they go!  

For the youngest members of the family

It is important that during the day they channel all their energy, with psychomotor exercises or through special gyms for babies. It should be borne in mind that a baby's sleep is not the same as that of an adult. A baby's sleep is not established because it is daytime or nighttime.... he does not know how to tell the difference.

The bedtime ritual can be a time announced by parents through a routine: bath, massage, putting on pyjamas, breast or bottle-feeding and singing a lullaby. Babies need routine, organised repetition to learn.

For those who are older

By the age of one, children sleep 13 to 14 hours a day. From 1 to 3 years of age, children should sleep between 10 and 13 hours a day, and thereafter the average is 10 to 12 hours at night. For children to continue to sleep well, the same sleep routines must be maintained as when they were babies, i.e. more or less strict schedules and the same bedtime rituals. But for this, children need to burn off energy.

During these days it is important to continue with the exercise routine so that they arrive tired at the end of the day. Here are some activities for your children which, as well as being fun, have positive benefits for their physical and mental development and for their health.

Yoga for children is a great way to combine play with relaxation, concentration and balance. Here are some links for them or to do with the family:

We recommend taking advantage of the evening to take a relaxing shower or bath. For dinner include nuts, tomato, rice, onion, oatmeal, sweetcorn or ginger, among others, which are foods with a high melatonin content that help regulate sleep and strengthen the immune system. And for when they're in bed... here are some links to help them relax and fall asleep quickly
