Yoga poses to help you sleep better
By Lexi Petronis, Glamour magazine
Feeling sleep-deprived? Yawn... you're not the only one. There are so many of us who have fallen behind on our ZZZZs, so here's just the thing to get you snoozing, fast...
Did you know it's estimated that 50-70 million Americans have chronic sleep disorders? That's a lot of not-getting-enough-shuteye--which can come with potentially scary results. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control study, nearly 39% of respondents said they were so sleepy during the day, they unintentionally started snoozing. And 5% of them fell asleep while driving. Yikes!
So sleep is a good thing--when you can get it. My problem is that I wait until the end of the day, while I'm lying in bed, to think about stuff--which means my head is filled with anxious to-do-list building, instead of sleeping.
Kimberly Fowler, founder of YAS Fitness Center and author of The No OM Zone, clued me in to these pre-sleep yoga poses, which help release stress and relax your body. I tried the whole lineup last night and felt like a happy, sleepy puddle at the end. Bonus: they take about 5 to 8 minutes, and you can do them all in bed!
