Sport and Sleep: Gym, Food and MY Pillow

Training is good. But sleeping well is even better and is your priority.
Sleep is an often forgotten factor for athletes, but it is of the same importance as training and nutrition for many reasons:
  • Who hasn't tried to learn their lesson just before going to bed to learn it better? Well it's not false! Sleep strengthens your concentration because brain cells restore themselves, purify themselves, filter information and retain information that is considered important. In sports, concentration is a key point to improve and increase your physical prowess.
  • Restorative sleep is your best remedy for a quick and effective recovery because your cells, including muscle cells, regenerate themselves. It is therefore essential for physical performance!
  • Sleeping serenely will allow you to remain lucid and reactive in your daily actions; indeed, the more restful your sleep is, the more you will be able to make the right choices!
  • Evacuate stress and bad toxins!

Thequality of your sleep also depends on the quality of your bedding and more particularly your pillow. It is therefore important to take the time to find a pillow for your body so that it can regenerate and relax. We spend more than 1/3 of our day in bed, so it is important to take care of this special moment.

How to choose the right pillow?

A pillow is chosen according to your position at night but also according to your morphology. It is important that the top of your head, especially your cervical vertebrae, is well supported to avoid any point of tension and allow your muscles to relax as much as possible. You really need to listen to your body so that it can give you this attention during your training (or even in everyday life).

SLEEPERS ON THEIR SIDE This position is the most ideal for a restful sleep, very relaxing for your body and internal organs. To choose it well, we advise you to choose it firmly, with a high enough swelling to fill the space between the mattress and your neck as much as possible. Your cervical vertebrae should feel supported to avoid creating a pressure point and potential injury during the night.

We recommend the Bia pillow, with a feather core that can be adjusted or the microfiber pillow.

SLEEPERS ON THEIR BACK Opt for a firm but not over-inflated pillow to avoid breaking the spine and cervical lines. The goal is to create a straight line. An unsuitable pillow could create tension and worsen over time .

We always recommend the Bia pillow, with a feather core that can be adjusted or the perfect Bliss pillow for excellent cervical support due to its unique grid structure.

BELLY SLEEPERS In order to align the spine and the neck, a belly sleeper needs a thin pillow and a softness in the wadding to fit the body contours as closely as possible.

Once again, we advise you the Bia pillowwith a feathery core that can be adjusted to reduce its wadding to a minimum.
