So you can't sleep right?
The UK Sleep Council (yes that's a real thing) estimates that nearly 50% of adults in the UK are getting less than 6 hours of sleep a night. That adds up to a lot of unhappy sleepers. While we've written some articles before (which you can view here) on sleeping better, there are 3 slightly different ways you can get yourself to dose off a little easier. And it all starts with lying on the ground
Now this stretch isn't aimed at bringing out the yoga master in you. It's a very simple stretch that most people don't do because they neglect the one thing that can guarantee they sleep better: their backs. We spend all day getting used to leaning and lying on our backs and that can cause your back to have to re-adjust all the time, If you look in the mirror and can see an arch on your lower back, it means you posture needs readjusted; not just for you to stand, but for lying too. This tip is something you'll hear all the time from chiropractors (if you ever want to visit one, check out Groupon for great deals on Chiropractors) Before you go to bed at night, go on the bedroom floor face down.put your arms at 90 degree angles so they form right angles. Now simply move your arms forward and back. This is a way of slowly getting the back to stretch out. Relieving tension in the upper spine can be the difference between you resting your head snugly on a pillow or having to lie on your side in all sorts of positions.
