The Gentlest, Most Effective Way to Toss and Turn
Lying-Down Easy Twist
"Your spine probably feels really compressed and stiff after sitting down all day," says Stiles. Use this twist to wring out the kinks.

How: From your knee hug, cross your right knee over your body toward your left hip. Reach your arms out to either side, laying your palms flat on the floor. Look over your right shoulder. Stay here for 10 long, deep breaths, or until you feel your right knee sinking heavily into the ground. Repeat with the opposite leg.
