Getting regular exercise may help with a good night sleep

According to Aussie and international researchers, people who regularly exercise 2 – 3 times a week are less likely to have insomnia and more likely to get the recommended 6-9 hours of sleep.

The team analysed survey data from over 4,000 people regarding their physical activity and sleep over ten years.

They found persistently active participants were likelier to be men, younger, and to weigh slightly less.

They were also less likely to be current smokers and more likely to be currently working.

The study revealed that regular exercisers were 42% less likely to find it difficult to fall asleep and 22% less likely to have any insomnia symptoms.

They also found that exercising consistently over time was important because people who became inactive over the 10 years of the study did not experience the benefits that regular exercisers did.
