October Sleep 13: Stretch

At the end of a long, busy day all I want to do is to curl up in a ball in a nice warm bed and fall asleep. If I’ve done this you can pretty much guarantee that I’ll wake up in the middle of the night in exactly the same position I fell asleep in with my muscles fixed in that position. After a good stretch to get everything moving again I’m wide awake and take ages to get to sleep again.

Much better to have a good stretch before I get into bed – that seems to prevent it from happening and improves the quality of my sleep.

For those of you who’ve been inspired to stretch, either today or in the past, how did it go? How do you feel now that you’ve done it? Did it improve the quality of your sleep? Add your comments below.

Come back tomorrow for your next nudge into peaceful sleep.
