It is so important to stretch your spine out so that you don’t sleep with tension in your neck. Apparently, these helps you fall into a deeper sleep, as your body is less tense. Try to this before you go to bed, and hold the position for a few minutes. If like me you are not very flexable, when you start doing this your body/spine will feel really tight and there will not be so much movement. I have been doing this nearly every night for the last few weeks and have seen a big difference in how easy it is to do, and how much less stressed my body feels when I climb into bed.
