Stretching before bedtime may relieve discomfort in your back and legs that could give you a better night’s sleep. Here are some of my favorite stretches.
If you want to stretch your lower back, pull your knee into your chest one at a time while lying face up. Then, extend both legs. Raise one leg, gently pull it close, and hold for a couple minutes. Put that leg down and raise the other. This stretches your hamstrings.
If you roll over, sit back on your heels, and extend your arms, you can use this child’s pose to stretch your lower back as well. I suggest holding this pose for a couple minutes too. It’s a great time to practice a few slow, deep breaths which just might put you in the mood to snooze.
