Tranquil Workouts to do before Bed for a Good Night's Sleep ...

By Tara

Relax, rest your body, put on zen music and get ready to doze off to sweet, peaceful dreams. If you are lying in bed restless, you may want to change up your routine. Try to relax your body and your mind with a tranquil workout before you go to bed tonight. A tranquil workout can help loosen your joints and ease your muscles in preparation for the next day. You will recover your body and ease into peaceful dreams after you do this tranquil workout. Here are a few of the workouts that I like best:

1 Cobra Stretch Will Relax Your Back

The cobra stretch will relax your lower back and core as well as strengthen your back. This is so relaxing and will actually de-stress your body. I feel so much looser after doing a cobra stretch. Follow along with this video to learn just how you can de-stress too!

2 Shoulders Rolls

Reset your posture, rest your body and prepare for a restful night with sweet dreams by beginning with simple shoulder rolls. Roll out the stress and rigors of the day as you begin with forward rolls and then reverse to front rolls. Rest, relax and roll it out!

3 Try the Arm Progression

Arm circles look simple and easy to do, so perform small circles and large circles. Start in the front, then reverse. Progressively roll the arms in a circle, getting quicker and then slowing it down. Relax as you get ready to hit the hay for some shut eye!

4 A Squat Hold While You Brush Your Teeth

Feel the burn in the front of your thighs. Get down low in a 90-degree position to strengthen your lower body and prepare for a good night. You can brush your teeth while you get into a squat hold and multitask. In a world of busy lives, deadlines and long work hours, multitasking may be the key to weight loss success!

5 Now Go into the Chair Pose

Exhale, bend at your knees and drop down into a seated position. Make sure you release the tension as you allow your hipbones to move down and back. Drop it down low as you stretch and open up your hips. This will help you to sleep sound and feel more limber!

6 Plie Stretch to Stretch out Your Inner Thighs

Stretch out your inner thighs as you get in the plie stretch and squat. If you are on your feet for most of the day or even sitting at a desk working daily, you may feel stiff by nighttime, so this stretch will come in handy and it doubles as a strengthening exercise too! So drop your legs down into a V and enjoy this super stretch!

7 Go into a Short Yoga Goodnight Workout

Before you head into sleepy town, why not do this short yoga sequence of stretches to lengthen your body, relax your muscles and ease your mind from the stress of the day? Take a deep breath, relax and follow this short video!

Rest well, relax and have healthy, happy dreams! Did you enjoy that tranquil workout?
