Yoga for Better Sleep, Insomnia, or Relaxation

My good friend, Jo, over at A Majority of Two , had a very interesting post today about insomnia. It prompted me to share a good yoga video with all of my bloggie friends who may be experiencing some form of insomnia. Some have trouble falling asleep, others wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back asleep. Yet, others find it hard to sleep at all. I have been into yoga for many years, for mental, physical, and spiritual well being. It is relaxing to do and not stressful on your joints, like other workouts. My favorite yoga book is called "A Morning Cup of Yoga". It includes a cd and takes no more than 15 minutes to complete, to reap benefits all day long.

She's very informative as well as doing helpful poses. I like her explanations of why each movement or posture helps. Are there more of her videos?

Welcome Julie and thanks for visiting. Yoga calms the mind and the body and has been a part of my routine for many years. Hope that you find it helpful, too.

If insomnia is wreaking havoc in your life and in spite of your consistent efforts you are unable to sleep at night, you should soon approach a doctor. After a thorough examination, your physician may prescribe sleep inducing medicines such as ambien or sonata. However these medicines should never be taken without a proper prescription from a doctor as they tend to yield side-effects which at times can be serious.
