La routine quotidienne et le bien-être

Emotional and physical well-being can have a great impact on one's quality of life. What we eat 🥑 and how long we sleep 😴 have a great effect on how we feel.

A Healthy Diet  Une alimentation saine

According to the World Health Organization 🌐, a healthy diet can help prevent malnutrition and many diseases. For adults 👩‍🦱, a well-balanced diet should include fruits 🍉 (fruits), legumes 🥜 (légumineuses), nuts 🌰 (noix), and whole grains 🌾 (céréales complètes). The following are suggestions from the World Health Organization on how to maintain a healthy diet:
  • include vegetables in all meals
  • for snacks, consume fresh fruit and vegetables
  • eat fresh fruit and vegetables that are in season
  • eat a variety of different fruit and vegetables
Within the first two years of life 🍼, optimal nutrition can foster healthy growth (croissance saine) and can also improve cognitive development 🧠 (développement cognitif). Optimal nutrition as an infant 👶 can also help reduce the risks of becoming overweight (en surpoids) and/or obese (obèse) as an adult.
Governments can also play a role in promoting healthy diets through:
  • national policies and investment plans
  • encouraging consumer demand for healthy foods
  • promoting healthy infant feeding practices

There is no doubt that we feel a greater sense of well-being after a good night's sleep 🛌 💤. According to the World Health Organization 🌐, sleep deprivation (privation de sommeil) can have many negative effects on our health, including a) physical effects 🏋️‍♂️ (effets physiques) such as fatigue and hypertension; b) cognitive impairments 🤔 (troubles cognitifs) such as lack of attention and motivation; c) mental health complications 🧠 (complications de santé mentale).

Le sommeil nous est important à chaque étape de la vie 👶 🧒 👨 👨‍🦳. Par exemple, c'est pendant le sommeil que les neurones du cerveau 🧠 des bébés se développent. Pour les enfants, un sommeil adéquat favorise l'apprentissage scolaire 🎒 📓. De plus, le cerveau renforce sa mémoire pendant le sommeil. Il est conseillé que les enfants de 3 à 5 ans aient 10 à 13 heures de sommeil 😴; les enfants de 6 à 13 ans: entre 9 et 11 heures; les enfants de 14 à 17 ans: entre 8 et 10 heures; et les jeunes adultes de 18 à 25 ans: 7 à 9 heures ⏱️.
