A good night’s sleep requires much more than sleeping for seven to eight hours. Night-time routines are important and should be followed once in a while in order to refresh yourself because of the effects that they have on the mind. However, there is much more to them than just journaling or taking a bubble bath. Since the night is the time when one relaxes, it is important for the entire body to be at ease. Connecting with the self is vital for well-being and stretching is one way to ensure that you do so properly. Stretching can help you get rid of the immense amounts of stress and anxiety that you knowingly or unknowingly manifest within the body. It also helps muscles to relax and improve flexibility so that movements in the body are smoother and easier. Here are five night time stretches that you should add to your before bed activities.
