Stretching Before Bed
Want to improve your sleep quality? Studies show that stretching before bed along with mindfulness meditation can help improve your sleep. Other benefits of stretching are better circulation and a reduction of stress, body pain, and risk of injury. A simple stretch you can try before bed is called the Bear Hug. Start by standing tall and open your arms as you inhale. Next, exhale as you cross your arms. It will look like you are hugging yourself. Hold for 30 seconds, then inhale again as you open your arms to the starting position.
