Sleep is a key factor to managing abdominal bloating. Abdominal bloating can make it difficult to access your abdominal muscles when performing Pilates. So for a svelte look and successful Pilates, try to sleep a minimum of 8 hours a night. It regenerates the nervous system and brain, and regulates hormones. Stress can also cause bloating, so try to take walks, exercise, practice Pilates and any sport or dance that you enjoy, and breathe! Exercise helps you sleep better.
