ZZZZZZZ ...


Dear readers, this week ‘Z’ could only be *ZZZZZZZZZ*! 

You know how sometimes you long to fall asleep (like my chum above) but counting all those sheep simply isn’t working! Perhaps the answer is some exercise to help you relax before bedtime. But don’t panic and hide!
I don’t mean a half marathon around the block but rather a little light, gentle stretching! 
Remember our earlier Yoga Bear instructions? How they went something like this:
Exercise 1: Both feet up like so ...
Well done! Wasn’t too hard was it? Let’s try some more in Exercise 2:
Now Exercise 3: Left leg stretch. Ooh! Did you pull something too?
Next Exercise 4: Right leg stretch. Ooh! Aah!
And now Exercise 5: Right groin stretch. More ooh! Aah!
Next Exercise 6: Right leg stretch a bit more. Getting the hang of it now? Getting in your, er, stride?
Finally, Exercise 7: And relax! You deserve it!
Repeat as often as necessary until you get more and more drowsy (like the bears below) 
and (like me) just want to *ZZZZZZZZZ* ...
Do check out other *Z* posts - Alphabe-Thursday  @ Jenny Matlock, Ruby Tuesday & Rednesday!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented. .
XOXO LOLA:)

ZZZZZZZZZ's - great idea for a Z post! Maybe I need to do a little more bear yoga - might help my left hip pain go away! I also wrote a post about bears in Joy4Today.

I never knew that cats and dogs needed to count sheep to sleep - at least not ours...The bear needs to limber up prior to his foraging, and he/she looks as if they maintain their stretching schedule routinely. Now ready for action!

What a cute reminder that we all need more exercise. I have a terrible sleeping problem. Not sure why, but it wears me out the next day. Perhaps I should try what Yoga suggested.

Jenny said...

A little ZZZ sounds good right now.

Okay.

It would be more like a lay in bed and read a great book (that I'm having trouble putting down) than actual sleep...

...but still!

Thanks for sharing 'zis cute link with us!
