Sleep is an integral part of our lives. Good sleep helps the body and mind recover from the stress of the day and gives us new energy to face the new day. It also allows the body to heal and the muscles to recover. However, not getting enough sleep or getting enough sleep can make us more stressed and therefore ruin the energy for the next day as well.

With the covid pandemic, the stressful situation is everywhere. People stuck at home and with their own issues to deal with, not getting enough or deep sleep. This leads to additional stress and causes other illnesses. Rujuta Diwekar a day ago addressed the issue of insomnia and demonstrated four yoga asanas that can help you fall asleep faster and better.

Rujuta added that these yoga asanas should be done before going to bed. She also recommended that they be performed either on the bed or on some kind of mat and should not be performed for more than two to three minutes each. These asanas induce sleep and help de-stress the body.
