How to Relieve Restless Legs Syndrome Simply, Easily and with NO Medication.

What is it, Why do we experience it and How can we deal with it?

Restless Leg/s Syndrome hit me unexpectedly a few years ago and literally has driven me crazy until I came up with a way to knock it over.
Not saying it’s going to work without fail for everyone, because like a lot of midlife/menopausal symptoms, everyone’s different but it sure as heck will make a difference.
This syndrome kept me awake, seemed to only hit at night, just about destroyed my sleep and lifted my anxiety and stress levels.
Until I knocked it over!!!

So what is it?

It’s a compelling need to move, stretch or cool the legs.   It can feel like anything like a throbbing ache that centres in the knees and spreads right up to the hips, to a crawling itch, or a burning sensation or as some have described to me, a pain right deep into the bones.   It can feel like a jumpiness in the legs that can’t find comfort in or out of the covers.    It literally makes the legs incredibly restless, so therefore YOU are restless, your partner is affected and your sleep is being destroyed.    As soon as I stand up, it’s gone – that’s the weird part.  But I’ve yet to find anyone who can sleep standing up!   So I needed to find a way to deal with it.

Want your body to improve with age? Then do this every day!!

But do it incorrectly and you could do yourself damage.

Older women can rock a great body that gets better with every decade!

Check out the video I created on the step by step method to get yourself into a safe high plank.   It’s repeated on the bottom of this post.  It’s only a couple of minutes, so try watching it first – then have a go doing it with me.

But be careful – if you’ve never done this before, only do what your body is willing and able to do right now until you’ve slowly built up your strength and endurance.    When you do this, keep breathing, don’t hold your breath.   Hold it for a few seconds, then come back down.   Breath, try again.   When your confidence has improved, try to hold it for longer.   And watch your body transform!!!

As we age the number one thing that most women complain of is their loss of core strength and an expanding waistline.  That was me!!! 

I’ve discovered ONE exercise that I hated at first.   I just couldn’t do it.   NOW – I love it and I’ve seen the results.

As young women we may have felt that we were unstoppable.
