Health Tip: Exercise for Better Sleep
-- Exercising during the day can lead to better sleep at night.
The National Sleep Foundation offers suggestions that can help you sleep better:
- Engaging in cardiovascular exercise, such as walking or biking, for about 10 minutes per day can help promote sleep.
- Getting regular exercise can help lower the risk of conditions such as sleep apnea or restless legs syndrome.
- Exercising can help you sleep longer and improve the quality of sleep, helping you feel more rested.
- Exercising outdoors exposes you to natural daylight, which helps promote sleep.
