Le changement d’heure et ses effets sur le corps

The time change and its effects on the body

When the time comes to change the time, many of us ask ourselves an existential question: will I sleep more or less tonight? Or will it be more or less light when I wake up?

Like every year since 1963, in autumn, we switch to winter time! And this time change can cause effects on the body that are difficult to bear. Here are some tips to help you get through this period better.

What effects does the time change have on your body?

To better understand the effects of the time change, you should know that our “biological clock”, the one that regulates our daily needs, operates in 24-hour cycles and is mainly based on sunlight. When the time is changed, this rhythm is disrupted, which can lead to difficulty falling asleep, insomnia, irritability, attention deficit and fatigue.

While some people feel no particular symptoms , others may see their rhythm of life disrupted for several days, or even several weeks. Elderly people, babies and children are often most affected by the time change, as their schedules are generally more fixed and important for their daily life.

The good news is that there are natural remedies to help us cope better with the time change and support the whole family in this delicate period . We have selected for you three particularly well-suited products .
