You need your sleep cycle to be efficient in order to feel good, think clearly and perform at your best. This can be achieved through Pranayama. Pranayama and Yoga can help cure Insomnia by improving blood circulation, reducing stress and improving the physical posture. As Pranayama is a relaxation exercise, it stimulates your body and mind’s natural relaxation response, which makes sleeping much easier.

Here are 4 Pranayama exercises which can help people dealing with sleeping disorders-
Brahmari Pranayama (humming bee breath) is helpful to people suffering from Insomnia, anxiety and nervousness. It is a calming breathing practice that soothes your nervous system and helps to connect you with nature.

Chandra Bhedana Pranayama (left nostril breathing) is beneficial in inducing sleep as it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system. It puts a calming and smoothing effect on the body.
Anulom Vilom Pranayama (alternate nostril breathing) is designed to balance the nadis, purify the body’s energy and activate the higher consciousness.
Ujjayi Breathing Pranayama (ocean breath) technique aims to keep the mind cool and the body warm. The steadiness, sound and depth of the practice helps to link our mind, body and spirit to the present moment which helps in deep sleep.

To be content and happy in life, one needs to be mentally, emotionally and financially balanced. In these unprecedented times, being financially balanced and protected is extremely important. Pranayama takes care of your sleep and maintains your emotional balance by letting you fight against Insomnia likewise, ICICI Prudential iProtect Smart Term plan from ICICI Prudential Life Insurance protects you against all future uncertainties and helps you achieve peace of mind.
