Getting a good night’s sleep can often be more difficult than you think. There are many factors that can affect the amount of shut eye you get, from being too hot and sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress to snoring partners and even noisy neighbours.
This Sleeptember, luxury bed makers, Harrison Spinks, have pulled together a definitive list of hints and tips that will help you switch off and drift into a restful slumber.
One of the main factors that can affect your sleep is the support you get from your mattress. The general rule is that the more springs a mattress has, the better the comfort and support it offers – correct support while sleeping is essential in keeping your spine in perfect alignment.
Yoga is very simple, but it can completely transform your life and do wonders for your health. While some people think of it as a set of breathing exercises, yogis can confirm that it is so much more. It will not only clean up your mind, but it will make your body stronger and agile.
These are just some of the benefits of yoga that will enrich your life and help you become the best version of yourself.
You will be more flexible
Yoga will make your body more flexible, and your balance will be outstanding. It is an activity that works your entire body, so you will notice your muscles becoming stronger and more defined. Start slowly and use easier poses (or modifications) which will increase your range of motion over time.
