Ten minutes of gentle stretching as part of your nightly wind down routine is a good way to ease achy muscles and get rid of tension in the body before you head to bed. But if there’s just one move to try then maybe this one is it.
The ‘Legs Up the Wall’ position has been found to slow down the heart rate (gravity means that your heart doesn’t have to pump as hard). Try it for five minutes tonight and tune in to your body as you do it. You’ll notice your breathing slows and your mind starts to relax. Feel better?
