SYNOPSIS

A lot of modern Yogi’s believe that the pose legs up the wall may have the power to cure whatever ails you. This is a pose to do when you come home and you’re very tired and your legs hurt and your lower back hurts and you need to revive yourself because you have another engagement later. So what do you do? Sit down on the floor by a wall and place your right hip flush to the wall and swing your legs up, scoot your butt up as close to the wall until you feel comfortable. Stay in that position for 5 to 15 minutes as the metabolic waste drain from your tired legs.

SYNOPSIS

We all have trouble sleeping from time to time.

It’s important to create a sleeping ritual for yourself.

Establish a time to go to sleep around the same time every night.

Stop looking at your screens so you can start to turn inside.

Play soft music and make yourself a calming tea.

One of our favorite rituals is to soak in the tub with bath salts and lavender oil.

If you don’t have a tub you could take a warm shower and spray some lavender in the shower, taking in the calming scent.

As you soak in the tub, or stand in the shower, see the stresses of your day and let them go.

Let them wash away.

Focus now on all that went well, being grateful.

Shifting gears so you can relax your body, calm your mind and sleep soundly.
