Sleep Better After These 4 Evening Yoga Poses
After a long, hectic workday, the only thing you want to do is hop in bed and hit the sheets. But for those of us who have a hard time getting to sleep at night, this is often easier said than done. While you might have tried different herbal teas, soothing sound machines and other sleep hacks -- you still find yourself wide awake at night.

We get it and we feel your pain. Because we know how important getting a good nights rest is, we've got a few easy remedies for you. As you've probably heard, yoga is one of the best and most simple ways to ease your mind, body and soul. It relaxes you, revitalizes you and helps you find your center -- so it's no surprise doing yoga before bed increases your chances of getting to sleep.

Check out the video above for some great evening yoga poses to make getting to sleep that much easier.

This inspirational poem was shared with me today and I wanted to share it with you too. Hope you enjoy and take from it what works for you. And a big thank you for all the birthday wishes!!! xxx She let go. She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go. She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go. She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right. She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go. She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go. No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go. There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore… ~ Rev. Safire Rose
