10 Yoga Poses to Do in Bed to Ease Pain and Have the Best Sleep of Your Life

Whether you sit in an office chair all day, like to garden, or are on your feet for extended periods of time, you're probably no stranger to sore muscles at the end of a long day. Because our bodies tend to repeat the same physical motions using the same muscles, the aches we experience can get worse over time if they aren’t tended to. And while we know that gentle yoga stretches are good for our tired, aging bodies, it’s hard to find time to stretch during the course of a busy day. But what if we told you that you could stretch those tight muscles right from your bed before hitting the sack? Instead of scrolling through your phone when you lay down for a good night’s rest, try these bed yoga poses to help ease that nagging tension in your back, neck, and other common pain zones. Even better: Relaxed muscles lead to deeper sleep, so you’ll rest easier and wake up feeling refreshed.
