Stretching is an easy way to unwind from the day and get your body and mind in the mood for sleep. Here are four stretches to help you relax:
- Forward Bend: Elongates the back, neck, and hamstring muscles, while increasing blood flow.
- Cat Stretch: Releases back strain and massages the digestive organs.
- Child’s Pose: Opens the hips, stretches the arms, and calms the nervous system.
- Butterfly Pose: Stretches the thighs, knees, and hips. Bending forward releases lower-back tension.
