Many people either due to stress at work place or any other health related problems fail to have a peaceful sleep. Once they don’t have it they cant work properly the next day and hence this leads to loss of productivity and other health related problems which may become severe in the later stages of life. For all such problems which are related to sleep yoga is found to be the best solution since it is the natural way of solving the problem. However, doing it regularly only makes it functional as well as effective.
The breathing and the meditation techniques involved in practicing yoga are very helpful in clearing the mind from any emotional imbalances and hence makes it relax without any disturbances. Even though those techniques are simple the extended exhaling creates the oxygen/carbon dioxide ratio in the blood stream conductive to the night sleep. It also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system. This inhalation and the breathing techniques are also helpful to rebuild cells, detoxifying the body and hence promoting relaxation.
The main reason for feeling restless or not getting enough sleep is due to tensions and the troubles that we carry to the bed. If they are eliminated we are half way successful in getting nice sleep. But it is not that easy to take away from our mind than bringing them in to it. For this purpose one can take the help of yoga which is a natural way to relieve your tensions and strains so that you can have a happy and peaceful sleep. Using prescription medicines is a temporary solution and if the body gets used to these things it cannot get natural sleep easily unless the drug is taken by the body and hence a person becomes addictive to drugs.
