So I tried a yoga routine prior to falling asleep to see if it would help me get to sleep quicker and surprisingly I felt like it did! I went to bed much more relaxed and calm and my body felt heavy and ready to sleep. I slept pretty quick and slept soundly until I had to go to the bathroom!
Rating for yoga before sleeping; 8/10
YIPPEE a potential solution has been found. However, tonight I shall try and use a technique whereby I tighten muscle groups and release them slowing starting from my toes!
