Few of us manage to fall asleep as soon as we get into bed. Fortunately, there are exercises that will help you calm your nervous system, relieve stress, and relax in seconds.
Dedilat.com found for you 6 simple yoga poses, after which you’ll sleep like a baby.
#6. Legs up the wall.
How to do it: Lie down facing the wall, and put a pillow under your waist. Raise your legs so that your heels and knees are in the same line, and your hands lie along your body, palms up. Stay in this position for 2 minutes. Then smoothly bend your knees, and shift them to either side.
#5. On your stomach.
How to do it: Lie on a pillow on your stomach, and lock your fingers behind your back. Take a deep breath, bend your back and toes, and try to reach your heels with your hands. Then slowly go down, and exhale.
Repeat the exercise 5-10 times. Only then should you “unlock” your fingers and relax your hands.
#4. Legs at a wide angle.
How to do it: Sit down with your legs wide apart, and put a pillow in front of you. Straighten your back, and inhale as deeply as you can. Then, slowly exhaling and stretching your arms forward, lie on the pillow.
Lying in this position, inhale and exhale 10 times, and then go up.
