Wellness Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!

We’re half way through another week and with some sleep issues here at the April home, I am doing a second round of sleep help for Wellness Wednesday. Phil had a terrible night sleep last night and was tossing and turning the night before as well. While my breathing techniques are pretty amazing, below are 5 yoga poses to help promote better and more restful sleep. Everything listed below can easily be done at home and with the support of pillows, bolsters, blankets, etc.. if needed.

Sleep Sequence #1

IMG_1064The poses shown above are as follows: Big Toe Hold A & C (Top Row), Happy Baby, Plow, & Legs up the Wall (Bottom Row). Each pose is to be held for around 7-10 breathes or about 2 minutes. Use a towel, strap, or t-shirt to help with the first two, feel free to bend your knees in plow (the middle one on the bottom row), and make sure your but is touching the wall in the last one.

Since I have noticed this is a pretty serious wellness issue I will be dedicating all the Wellness Wednesday posts for the month of March to sleep tips! Getting a good night sleep is paramount to getting the most out of your day, so if there are any specific issues out there or things you’d like to cover, comment below!

 

’til next time, keep smiling! 🙂
