Intégrez la sieste dans votre quotidien en 5 jours : un guide pratique - JOUR 4

Integrate naps into your daily life in 5 days: a practical guide - DAY 4

J4 - Use breathing and relaxation

Before diving into your flash nap , practice a few deep breaths. Sit comfortably, close your eyes and focus on your breathing . This will help you relax more quickly during your nap, maximizing its benefits.

Here are our tips for this 4th session:

If you have a lot to do in the afternoon and want a boost for your flash nap, drink a coffee in the minutes just before your nap.
As with the other sessions, prepare your moment well and improve your rest space if necessary ( cushions for comfort , a mask to block out the light, soft music, etc.).
Test the 4-7-8 method: once your body is completely relaxed, place your tongue against your palate, behind the incisors. Start by loudly exhaling all the air in your lungs. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose, counting to 4. Hold your breath, this time counting to 7. Exhale loudly through your mouth, counting to 8. Repeat the sequence at least 3 times.
Did this breathing exercise help you? If so, memorize it and don't hesitate to repeat the experience. As with memorization (visual, auditory), we are all different when it comes to naps and the means of falling asleep may vary. Ditch the ones that don't speak to you, prefer those that you find effective.

Salvador, our everyday cushion, was designed to take micro naps on an office chair. Starting point for our design, we wanted a cushion that provides immediate comfort and allows you to doze off quickly for a nap between noon and two . Then, it quickly conquered other environments: sofa, reading in bed, deck chair, deckchair, hammock...
