Simple yoga poses that work as a natural remedy for sleeping difficulties.
This pose can also help you relax and stretch your back, which helps with mild back pain.
Find a steady chair or use the edge of your bed that has a similar height; make sure there is enough space for you to sit on the floor an arm’s length away from the chair or bed.
Follow these two steps:
Step 1: Sit in front of your chair with your ankles tucked underneath your bottom and your back straight. If this hurts your ankle, put some towel under them. Take a deep breath, stretch your arms forward, and lift them up slowly.
Step 2: Slowly bend your torso down towards the chair and bend your elbows to rest your head on your arms. Take a deep breath, in and out, 5 times. Then, turn your head to the other side and take a deep breath, in and out, 5 times again.
Remember to get up slowly after you’re done. Keep in mind that you need to be extra careful during any form of exercise. If any pose makes you feel pressure or pain, do not continue with it.
