Similarly, Alice Beckett-Wilson, physical therapist and wellness expert says, "Stretching before going to bed is helpful in getting a good night's sleep, and all stretches should be done with a focus on breathing."
So if you're desperately awaiting some much-needed R&R, fluff your pillows, toss the sheets back and keep clicking to see how to prepare for the best sleep of your life.
