Workouts Will Make You Sleep Better - ADC Sleep Disorder's Center
Researchers have found sleep quality gets better with workouts.
People who regularly hit the gym sleep better and feel more alert during the day than those who are not as physically active, according to a research.
The results showed that people who did 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity a week reported a 65-percent improvement in sleep quality.
“Physical activity may not just be good for the waistline and heart, but it also can help you sleep,” study researcher Brad Cardinal, professor of exercise science at Oregon State University, said.
Participants who worked out for at least 150 minutes also said that they felt less drowsy during the daytime, compared with those who were less physically active.
(People who got 150 minutes of exercise a week reported a 65-percent improvement in their sleep quality.)
Cardinal and his colleagues studied a nationally representative sample of more than 2,600 men and women between the ages of 18 and 85.
They study adds to the evidence showing that “regular physical activity may serve as a non-pharmaceutical alternative to improve sleep,” Cardinal said.
The study showed that the risk of often feeling overly sleepy during the day dropped by 65 percent for the more active participants.
