7 Simple Yoga Poses You Should Try to Have a Better Sleep
The secret is out ...
... Yoga is incredible.
Unlike other forms of exercise, a regular yoga practice can calm the mind, release tension in the body, strengthen the central nervous system, and beat stress.
The best part?
Yoga may just be that extra boost you've been looking for in your battle against insomnia.
By practicing a primary restorative yoga sequence in the evening, you can promote a good night's sleep by releasing the stress of your day, establishing a nightly routine for restful sleep, and shifting to a deeper mode of breathing.
For each of these relaxing yoga poses, take a gentle approach. Focus on making a deep breath as you enter the posture. Without forcing your body into the pose, take 5-10 deep, smooth breaths and try to keep your mind present with each breath.
Before you know it, it will be time to move on to the next yoga pose, and you'll be yawning and ready for the best night of restful sleep since you were in diapers.
