Stretching before bed is proven to help relax your muscles, get you to sleep faster and ensure you have a restful night’s of sleep. If you’re having trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or calming your mind before bedtime, this is definitely something you should try ASAP.

One easy stretch to start with is a seated forward stretch. Sit on the ground with your legs straight out in front of you and slowly bend forward as far as you can with your feet flexed. You should feel this targeting the muscles in your legs. As you hold the pose try to relax your thoughts and breathe deeply.

Another great stretch for beginners? Sit cross legged either on your bed or on the floor and hold your back as straight as possible. Stretch your arms all the way up with your hands interlocked and your palms facing the ceiling. Make sure your back is elongated and you should feel the strect in your back and shoulders. This is a super relaxing stretch, so make sure you deep breathe. As an added relaxation benefit, listen to a guided meditation while you stretch.
