You’re too tense
People with insomnia are much more likely to experience associated health problems such as anxiety, depression, diabetes and congestive heart failure.That’s why it’s important to unwind before bed. Try some simple yoga stretches to help you sleep.
“Yoga gets you in touch with the breath,” says yoga instructor Darcie Clark. “When you slow down and stay in a pose you can feel different areas of the body that are tense and holding on from your day and gradually let that go as you sit and breathe through the pose.” And stretching in general has a calming effect, says Nikos Apostolopoulos, director of the Microstretching Clinic in Vancouver, making bedtime the best time for it.
