Do This Yoga Routine Before Bed for Better Sleep

It can be difficult to wind down when you are busy, stressed or even excited about something. And it can be difficult to stay asleep when you are out of balance, and this gets harder and harder as people age. Too many people wake up at 3:00 in the morning, which is very disruptive. However, these things can be changed with a little Ayurvedic help.

For starters, relaxing the body is a doorway to relax the mind. Engaging in slow, gentle yoga before bed can offer a myriad of benefits for calming the mind and body, ultimately leading to a more peaceful and restorative sleep. Here are some advantages:

  • Relaxation: Slow yoga movements help to relax tense muscles and release physical tension accumulated throughout the day.

  • Stress Reduction: Practicing gentle yoga can help lower stress levels by focusing on breathing and mindfulness.

  • Body Awareness: It is time to let go of thoughts before sleep. By connecting with your breath and body through yoga poses, you can cultivate a sense of presence and awareness, which is conducive to a peaceful mind.

  • Sleep Quality: Establishing a bedtime yoga routine can signal to your body that it's time to wind down, leading to improved sleep quality and duration.
