As a brand committed to equipping every Indian with better health through good sleep, Duroflex, India’s leading sleep solution provider, hosted a digital live session with globally renowned Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Luke Coutinho on the occasion of Mental Health Awareness Month.

The session was cohosted by Smita Murarka, VP Marketing and E-Commerce, Duroflex and together they shared their expertise on the rich benefits of sleep and how it can improve physical and mental health. Through this interactive and informative session, Duroflex encouraged people to use the power of sleep to boost immunity and stay healthy and protected during this pandemic.

The session shed light on the increased interest among people on improving health and immunity during this pandemic and how unfortunately sleep, which is the most natural way for our body to boost immunity, is often left out of this conversation.

The experts agreed on how sleep is the best medicine, not just to prevent many lifestyle diseases but also to increase mental resilience and keep anxiety, stress and depression at bay. The team also answered questions from audiences clarifying their doubts about sleep and health.

Smita Murarka, Vice President, Marketing and E-commerce, Duroflex, said, “Duroflex has always been at the forefront of conversations around the rich health benefits of sleep.  Not many know that sleep is our body’s most natural way of boosting immunity. We are culturally conditioned to treat sleep as an optional lifestyle choice, when in fact, it is a non-negotiable biological necessity.”

Luke Coutinho, Holistic Lifestyle Coach, said,Sleep is the most powerful drug. Your growth, your repair, your hormonal balance, all of this is managed by sleep. If you are sleep deprived, nothing is ever going to work.

“Sleep is a natural mechanism in the human body that controls every cell, every function. It also creates a smooth relationship between one’s mind, and body,” Coutinho said.
