Many men and women have insomnia, a common condition that causes lack of sleep. Due to their busy lifestyle, constant exhaustion, or inappropriate nutrition, the body stays alert and is unable to fall asleep.
However, there are ways you can treat this problem and help your body relax. That is where yoga comes in. Some immensely beneficial stretches will help you relax. Furthermore, they will help balance your state of mind, breath, and energy.
In the long run, you will feel more happy and blissful. But, to get all the benefits from these poses, you will have to learn to control your inner mind and allow yourself to calm down. Therefore, you need focus, peace and quiet.
Moreover, you will need about a minute for each pose. But, you can extend the time each day. Lastly, make sure to practice these poses and hold them five minutes or longer. Here are the best poses you should try to fall asleep quickly.
Reclining Pose – Bound Angle
This pose is also known as the butterfly pose. It requires little effort but can do a lot for your body. To do it, lie flat on the back, bring the feet soles together, pop your knees upwards, and let the knees fall to the ground on each side.
If you can’t get the knees closer to the ground at first, make sure to hold them as close as you can slowly. Lastly, take deep long breaths through the nose.
Lie on the back, but don’t let the back touch the ground. Next, extend both of your arms by your sides with the palms near the buttocks. Now, slowly bend the elbows by pressing the lower arms. The goal is to lift the upper body and keep the head on the ground.
It may be unpleasant at first, but it can definitely help you sleep. Take 5 to 10 deep breaths and release.
If you have bad knees, don’t do this exercise. Otherwise, it can be very beneficial for falling asleep quickly. Here is what you should do. Keep the legs together close to each other. Now, draw the back and chest towards the knees and bend your body.
Your arms should be extended in front of you on the ground. Now, relax the shoulders, back, and stomach. Now, try to stay in this position for as long as you can and take deep long breaths.
Spinal Twist Pose
Lie on your back, bend one knee and extend the other leg. Extend your arms as well and relax your body. Let the knees swing completely to the right side. Also, if you want, you can hold your left thigh with the left hand to feel more stable.
Now that both your hands are extended, carefully and slowly turn your head to the left side. But, don’t move the shoulders from the ground as long as you can. This way, you can stabilize the brain and feel more relaxed.
Finally, when you move your head, take long breaths and repeat the same procedure with the other side.
Back Roll Pose
Lie on the back wrap your knees almost under your body. Next, take the shins if you can. Now move your body towards each side, carefully. This pose can help a lot, especially if you are very stressed each day.
Plus, it can help treat the lower back pain as well. So, make sure not to put too much pressure on the shoulders, since they will be on the ground at all times. Lastly, make sure to take long breaths as you slowly move your body.
