It is, together with walking barefoot or not looking at the clock, one of the great pleasures of summer vacations. Few sensations are more pleasant than surrendering to that state of absolute relaxation, prelude to sleep or not, which is reached lying on a hammock under the shade of a tree, feeling like the breeze caresses our skin.
So far, poetry but let's get to the point, is it really good to fall asleep like this? Starting from the non-negotiable basis of what we do in the shade (in the sun, although we carry sunscreen, it is absolutely discouraged, especially during the central hours of the day).
Ata Pouramini, director of Quiropractic Valencia and author, among other books, of 'Back School', brings us out of doubt.
