Pilates Mat exercises (or any other form of physical activity) can be an excellent way to refresh the body and relax the mind. Adequate rest and getting a good night’s sleep is one of the key components to whole-body health. But for many people, falling asleep, and/or staying asleep can be a challenge… Racing thoughts, worries, thinking about all the things you need to do, or should have gotten accomplished today, or no matter what, you have got to get done tomorrow… Insomnia will not rejuvenate the body, mind, or spirit, but exercise can! If you ever find yourself lying in bed wide awake wishing you could sleep, and wondering how the heck you’re going to stay awake at work tomorrow, roll yourself out of bed and onto a mat and MOVE. Even a short 10-15 minutes of Pilates Matwork just might be enough to calm the mind, center your body, and release and relax nervous energy so you can crawl back in bed and get a good night’s sleep. Pilates Mat exercises à Moving Meditation à Relaxation (for a restful night’s sleep.) Sweet Dreams!
