How Exercising Helps You Sleep Better

Have you noticed that on the days you indulge in an intensification of physical activity, such as playing a game of football or swimming for an hour in the pool, you feel happy and relaxed and sleep better at night? Exercise can do that to you.

Many studies show that exercise helps improve the quality of your sleep. Making exercise a regular part of your life will make you healthier and happier and give you more restful sleep. It can even heal conditions such as insomnia.

How does exercising help you sleep better?

When you indulge in intense physical activity, that helps you sleep better and for longer and improves the quality of your sleep. It removes some of the stress you feel and resets the sleep-wake cycle by raising your body temperature by a few notches.

Then, as you relax after the workout, the body temperature drops and induces a bout of sleepiness a few hours later. To make the most benefits of exercise for the sleep-wake cycle, you should participate in sports such as football or hockey that are played outside in the sun. Going on an early morning run or walk to get as much natural sunlight as possible is a good choice.

Here's what exercise does for you

Improves sleep quality – Physical exercise helps you sleep much better. It gives you the deep, restful sleep you need. The more you exercise, the deeper the sleep you'll get. Getting a good night of sleep regularly helps restores your health. It boosts your immunity, improves the functioning of the heart, and reduces some of the stress and anxiety you might be feeling.

Helps increase sleep duration – You must sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours. That should give your body enough time to recover from the day's exertions.

When you're physically active, you will use up more energy and feel tired enough to ensure you get the good, quality sleep you want.

When you exert yourself physically throughout the day, you will not feel restless in bed as you sleep at night. You will get the deep, relaxing sleep that rejuvenates you when you wake up, full of enthusiasm for the rest of the day.

Helps relieve some of the stress and anxiety you feel – Stress is the leading cause of sleeplessness. When you're stressed out because of whatever has happened at work or an argument with your partner, you'll find yourself tossing and turning in bed as you try to sleep.

It would be best if you had a way to de-stress. That is why you need to exercise. Exercise is one of the best stress busters out there. It is the perfect remedy for psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression and makes you feel much better about yourself.

An exercise routine that includes cardio workouts, Yoga, and stretching improves the functioning of the heart, helps you breathe better, and keeps your blood pressure under control. That's why, to sleep better, you should make it a habit of exercising regularly.
