Try-It Tuesday: 8 Minute Yoga for Better Sleep
This pin was a little different from any that I've done before. It was an 8 minute yoga workout for better sleep from Fitness Magazine. It consists of 5 exercise that you're supposed to do for a certain amount of time. It turned out that this was harder to fit in than I thought it would be which is probably why I have a difficult time sleeping in the first place! I finally got around to giving it a try last night and had some mixed results. 4 of the positions were great. They were simple and provided just the right amount of stretch. I could feel tension leaving and was feeling all relaxed. Then I got to the 5th position that involved rocking back and forth. There was no way I could get it to work on the bed but when I moved the floor the angle hurt my back even though the floor is carpeted. I also found keeping up with the amount of time specified distracting. In all but 1 it was impossible to see a clock without having to move. I'm thinking of trying to incorporate 4 of the 5 positions into getting ready for bed and maybe just do them to the count of 10.

Verdict: Keep but with some tweaking
Next Week - I'm going to go to my House Stuff board and attempt to easily clean my oven. It should be interesting.
