Our evening routines have changed dramatically over the last year. It used to be that we left work, ate dinner, maybe watched an hour of TV, then went to bed. But now we are replying to emails at any hour, scrolling on social media and letting just one more episode of that gripping Netflix series automatically play. All this technology can have an opposite effect on our ability to get a good night’s sleep.
Easing into a restful night with a quiet yoga practice focused on deep breathing to calm your mind and release physical tension can help your body wind down. The combination of breath and movement can counteract any stress and get you ready for sleep.
At the Olve, we love restorative type of yoga routines. It uses floor-based poses which encourages your body to relax and keep your muscles flexible, so you are less likely to experience discomfort during everyday activities. Try this calming routine to score some serious shuteye.
