Get Better Sleep and Improve Digestion with This 30-Second Yoga Move

8 APR 2014

Don’t have time to work out? What if all it took was 30 seconds of your time? If you find yourself strapped for time, try the Reclined Twist, a yoga position shown in this video. Yoga can improve your overall health and well-being, and can function as a great tool to relax. The next you find yourself stressed, try it out! This article by Lifehacker explains:

“It’s called ‘Reclined Twist.’ You relax in the pose while holding your bent leg towards the opposite side. The video above shows a variation of the pose, where your knee is upright; in the traditional pose, your knees are stacked over each other and against the floor. You can lie in it for ten deep breaths on each side or for ten minutes, if you wish.

It also helps with achiness in the shoulders and neck (especially if you turn your head to the opposite side of the bent knee), and Yoga Journal says it can help cure a sluggish digestion (by wringing out your insides) and low energy.”
