Yoga alleviates insomnia
Oh, and were you thinking yoga was strictly for that Indian monk? Specific yoga exercises improve your sleep quality. An insightful national survey from the National Institutes of Health revealed that 55 percent of the participants who did yoga experienced improved sleep quality. This is not unconnected with the proven capacity of yoga to reduce stress and help you calm down.
Yoga exercises help you breathe better, improving your muscle health and consequently reducing the time it takes you to fall asleep. Three-to-five minutes of yoga exercises daily, like Wide-Knee Child’s Pose, Reclining Bound Angle, Corpse Pose and Legs on a Chair Pose can help you sleep better.
Having established the efficacy of exercises in relieving insomnia, it is vital to steer clear of rigorous workouts within 60 minutes of your bedtime. This could have adverse effects on your sleep like heightened adrenaline, elevated heart rate and higher body temperature.
