Try These 6 Simple Yoga Poses Designed To Put You To Sleep FAST!
Before you go popping any pills consider trying some simple body hacks to allow your nervous system to relax and sleep to come naturally.
You spend one third of your life sleeping! It is absolutely crucial that we master the art of deep rejuvenating sleep.
Millions of people struggle to attain good sleep each night, and even more people than that take a very long time to fall asleep.
I tried pose #3 last night and my eyes got so heavy in a matter of 2-3 minutes, that I just rolled over and passed out faster than I had in a very long time! I hope these work well for you as well.
***Remember to be gentle with yourself, take things at your own pace. Contact a professional yoga instructor in your area for help achieving proper posture or help modifying any moves that are too strenuous for your personal level. Consult with your personal health care provider, especially for those with back problems to see if this routine is for you****
1. Seated Wide Angle Pose (Upavistha Konasana)
2. Locust Pose (Salabhasana)
Or the half locust for beginners
3. Legs Up The Wall (Viparita Karani)
4. Reclined Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana)
5. Supine Spinal Twist (Jathara Parivartanasana)
6. Corpse Pose (Savasana)
Now remember, give yourself some time to allow these poses to really sink in, breathe deeply and focus your mind on all of the beautiful parts of the day you just had. Sometime the mind can be our biggest factor in falling asleep, I have found that focusing on gratitude as I close my eyes put my body in a lovely space, and sleep comes much more gracefully.
Here’s to a good night’s rest!
