Stretches That Help You Sleep

Stretches That Make For a Deep Sleep

I'm guilty of not stretching nearly as much as I should, but every time I do I'm reminded why it should be a daily part of my life. Stretching not only makes you more relaxed, but it helps keep your muscles flexible so you're less apt to experience discomfort or workout-related injuries.

You don't have to devote too much time to stretching; in fact, all you need are a few minutes before bed to make your body that much healthier. Besides increasing your muscles' strength and flexibility, these stretches will relax your body and help you get ready for quality sleep.

  • Almost anyone, from runners to office workers, can benefit from stretching out tight hips. Do a few of these hip-opening stretches before you go to bed to help you feel relaxed and help reduce discomfort.
  • If you haven't stretched and are ready to hit the hay, here are 10 yoga poses you can do in bed.
  • Don't feel like moving your body into One-Legged Half Wheel before you go to sleep? These simple bedtime stretches are easy to do and will help you get in a relaxing state of mind.
  • If you're a shower before bed kind of person, these stretches to do in the shower will help soothe tired muscles and prepare your body for sleep.
