People with insomnia are aware of the pain of being conscious at night for hours. Many begin to take various sleep-inducing medications, such as sedatives and tranquilizers; however, these drugs make them addictive and cause many other side effects. If you want to get rid of this sleep disorder, you can regularly do certain yoga poses. Yoga poses that are known to successfully control insomnia include:

Then slowly bend the upper body forward; the action will be carried out as if you were trying to touch your toes. Performing this exercise will encourage deep breathing and promote blood circulation. The breathing procedure in this yoga position will be: when you stretch your arms over your head, you should breathe; exhale slowly, lower the body. Remember that your back should remain flat throughout the exercise.

Once in the above position, try pulling your shoulders down; You will feel a tension in your hamstrings and behind your neck.
