Sleeping with your legs elevated

Eliminate Stress With Legs Up The Wall:

Letting go a little improves life. Letting go alot brings happiness and joy” Jim McGregor
Honestly, this has got to be one easiest ways to deeply rest your body.  Not too mention the health benefits for your adrenals, circulation, organs, heart, aching legs and nervous system.  So much better for you than having another cup of coffee and soldiering on.
Trust me, you’ve got to try this restorative yoga pose and experience it for yourself.  After 5 minutes of chillaxing with your “legs up the wall”,  you’ll feel so much better.  All you need is a floor and a wall.  Blankets and cushions are handy optional extras.
