First of all, what is “Sleep Hygiene”. To me, sleep hygiene is everything you do to make your night’s sleep a healthy one. It can be as easy as eliminating all distractions such as sounds and light or the pre-bedtime routine that you do before you go to bed. I have friends who swear by ear plugs and sleep masks.
For people with restless leg syndrome or body jerks, you should really try rolling out your body before you go to bed. It will relax you, increase blood flow(circulation) and stretch out your muscles, allowing them to get to a resting state faster. When you are more relaxed, you can sleep better and longer.
Here is a quick routine:
- Rollout your feet
- Rollout your calves
- Rollout the muscle on the front of your shin (Tibialis Anterior)
- Rollout your hamstrings
- Rollout your quads and IT Band
- Rollout your lower back
- Rollout your upper back and shoulders
- Rollout you Neck
- Rollout your arms

Have a Good Night!
