I recommend carving out time in every day to do some yoga poses.
You can start by merely incorporating simple poses 10 minutes into everyday.
Here are a few of my favorites!
Legs Up The Wall
Adding 20 minutes of legs up the wall is a great prescription and is equivalent to about 2 hours of sleep. It builds up your immune system and aids in much needed circulation to the legs, especially if you are on your feet for long periods of time.
You will love the waterfall effect as you feel the circulation running down your legs. Try it and let me know if you sleep better!
Other benefits include:
* Relief of lower back pain * Headache relief
* Soothes swollen or cramped feet & legs
* Stretches the hamstrings and lower back
* Boosts energy
* Improves digestion
* Reduces stress and anxiety
Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose may have the power to cure whatever ails you!
I love the child's pose. It helps relax my shoulders and I usually get a much needed pop.
I like to consider this pose like a humble prayer as I surrender all my cares to God.
Child's Pose Has Been Known For:
* Calms the mind * Improves digestion
* Elongates the spine * Opens up the hips
* Releases fatigue
* Boosts blood circulation * Energizes and massages the organs
This is a great beginner yoga pose and offers great relief of stress and is highly relaxing.
Child's pose gives relief for back pain and relieves muscle tension around the spine.
This pose helps to relax, stretch and flatten the tummy muscles. It also relives lower back tension. This pose should be practiced daily. Simply press your palms into the ground and bring your chest up while rolling your shoulders back, and begin to lift your chest up off the ground while keeping your hips firmly planted.

Tightens and firms the buttocks.
Stimulates the abdominal organs.
Helps relieve anxiety, stress and fatigue.
Opens up the heart and lungs.
Improves Kidney function
