Benefits of SleepMoves Routine
Data has shown that stretching before bed can offer a whole host of benefits, including a reduction in muscle cramping, improved relaxation, and higher quality sleep. On the other hand, extraneous exercises that increase your heart rate will have a negative effect on your ability to fall asleep.
The exercises included in SleepMoves are a good way to wind down before going to bed. Like yoga, it helps bring your nervous system into balance after a long day of tension and stress. When this balance occurs, the body can go from the hyper-alert “fight or flight” mode into the relaxed “rest and digest” state more effectively. By creating this balance between your active day and your restful evening, your body will fall asleep more easily.
