YOGA IN BED TO HELP YOU FIGHT INSOMNIA
Insomnia is now a growing concern among people because of their everyday lifestyle and stress levels. Yoga helps you ease your stress levels and releases feel good hormones which enable you to get a good, deep sleep which is essential for the body.
Here are some aasanas you can try in bed which will help you fall asleep:
- Lie on your bed facing the wall or headboard
- Lift your legs and extend them such that you can feel the stretch on your hamstrings
- Breath gently and let your arms be free, palms facing up
- Relax with the breaths, feel the stretch in the body
- Sit down on your bed cross-legged and exhale deeply
- Place your left palm on your right knee and place your right palm beside you on the bed
- Slowly turn your entire body towards the right
- Repeat the same in the opposite direction. You can feel your spine stretch and the entire body begins to relax
- The most relaxing aasana, lie on the bed relaxing on your back
- Keep your knees apart and join the soles of your feet
- Relax your hands beside you and take gentle breaths, feeling the calmness within
- Sit on your heels comfortably and roll forward such that your forehead touches the bed
- Lower your chest towards the knees stretching your arms out
- This relaxes your lower back and spine
- The last aasana aims at rocking you to sleep
- Lie comfortably on your back and fold your knees.
- Pull the knees towards the chest, cross your ankles and hug your legs
- Breath in as you motion yourself to sit up and exhale as you lie back
- Continue this rocking motion and drift into sleep
Practice each pose for 6-8 minutes before going to bed every day and feel the difference.
