Exercise can provide you with many great benefits, both during the day and at night. With regular exercise, like fitness classes, you can not only improve your overall health, but you can also improve your sleep.
When you exercise regularly can help you achieve a healthier, more restful sleep and has the potential to help you improve sleep issues such as insomnia. There are several ways exercise can not only boost your health but can also make sleeping more comfortable and more restful.
When it comes to determining the right amount of exercise, there is no set amount or “right” answer; it’s about finding an exercise routine that works for you. To help give you a baseline to start the American Heart Association and National Institutes of Health recommend that healthy adults get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, five days a week.
It is recommended that you follow a regular exercise routine for the best impact on your sleep. It is also recommended that you avoid demanding late-night workouts if they interfere with you falling asleep. If you prefer some movement before bedtime, yoga or simple stretching before bed can help you unwind for a more restful night.
