Surviving City Madness | Find Your Urban Zen With Our New Outdoor Yoga Series

Getting enough sleep every night is incredibly important to keep a balanced mind and body. Lots of people turn to sleeping aids when they cant get enough rest, without realising that there are many natural remedies to promote sleep that also tastes good. Tart cherries are one of the few natural sources of melatonin, which is responsible for the regulation of the body’s internal clock and sleep-wake cycle. Try adding cherries to your diet to get a full eight hours rest, then give this yoga routine from Yoga Carrot a try, to balance both your body and your mind for the day ahead.
