Does winter kick your butt? Shorter days hit us really hard - making us feel sleepy all the time. We can’t make the days longer, but here are some tips to get that bone-deep sleep and wake up refreshed.
We’ve crafted this mini-routine below to help you get started.
Have a snack
Keep the snack small and not too sweet. Maybe a piece of toast or a handful of nuts. Being even a little hungry can keep you up.
Try a mini yoga sequence before bed
If you can’t schedule a night-time yoga session with your teacher, this sequence will do in a pinch.
Legs Up The Wall
Find your breathFind a comfortable position in bed. Count your breaths: 1 for the inhale and 2 for the exhale. Do this for at least a minute or two, trying to keep your focus on the breath.
Yoga pose in bedYou don’t need a mat for yoga! Try reclined butterfly with your hands on your belly or heart. Not into that pose? Ask your teacher for some personalized suggestions.
Body scan meditation begin at the top of your head, moving down to the toes. Name each part of your body, taking one breath. For example, you can start by thinking “Top of the head, back of the head, forehead, eyebrows, nose” and so on.
Good luck and always feel free to drop us a line to let us know how it goes!
