Rock-a-Bye Roll

Minutes: 7:00-8:00

  • Lying on your back, hug knees in to chest.
  • Cross your ankles and wrap both arms around your shins with clasped hands.
  • Inhale and rock your body up to sit; exhale as you roll back.
  • Continue for 1 minute, then roll back, extend arms and legs, and drift off to sleep.

Here's more ways to a better nights sleep...

I don't understand this last one. "rock your body up to sit; exhale as you roll back. Continue for 1 minute, then roll back." I can't rock up as described, not without extending my legs. And not sure why the routine would end on the most strenuous step. (I'm 120 fairly fit pounds, so I feel like I should be able to do it.)

This works like a charm. I've used it for over a year and it keeps you asleep all night. Kill the caffeine before, though.
