Exercise & Sleeping Better

In Uncategorized by Jerry RothouseLeave a Comment


The amount of physical exercise you exert during the day, is one of the key ingredients to helping you get a good nights rest. The more active your body is during the day, the more likely you are to be able to relax, fall asleep faster and get a better nights sleep as well.

With regular exercise, you’ll notice that your quality of sleep is improved, and the transition between cycles of sleep will become smoother and more regular. By keeping up your physical activity during the day, you may also find it easier to deal with the stress and worries of life.

Research indicates there is a direct
correlation between how much we exercise and how we feel afterwards.

You should try and increase your physical activity during the day. The goal here is to give your body enough stimulation during the day, so that you aren’t full of energy at night, when you are trying to go to bed.

Your body requires a certain amount of physical activity in order to keep functioning in a healthy manner. It is also important to note that you should
not be exercising three or four hours before you go to bed.

The ideal exercise time is in the late afternoon or early evening. You want to make sure you expend your physical energy, long before it is time for
your body to rest and ready itself for sleep.

You should attempt to exercise at least three or four times a week, for a period of atleast 30 minutes or so. You can include walking or something simple, or if you prefer, you can include strenuous activities, such as running or lifting weights.

The goal here is to increase your heart rate and strengthen the capacity of your lungs. By adding regular exercise activity to your daily schedule, you should see a big improvement in your overall health and emotional wellbeing.

Along with running and walking, there are several other physical activities you can add to your daily life, to increase your level of physical activity. If you are battling not sleeping, you’ll find aerobic exercise to be the best.

Your goal with exercise is to increase the amount of oxygen that reaches your blood stream. Overall, there are many types of aerobic exercises for you
to choose from. These activities include running, biking, using a treadmill, dancing, and jumping rope and more.

There are some non-aerobic exercises that you may find beneficial to help you solve your amnesia problem.

Yoga is an exercise that has a stimulatory effect on your nervous system, especially the brain. Yoga utilizes breathing techniques and yoga postures to increase the blood circulation to the brain, promoting
regular and restful sleeping patterns.

The regular practice of yoga will help you to relax and relieve tension.

Tai Chi is an ancient art of breathing and movement that was developed by the Chinese monks. The movements involved are slow and precise, which is
ideal if you have joint pains or you are unable to participate in high aerobic exercises. Research has shown that Tai Chi can help with insomnia by
promoting relaxation.

If you discover that you don’t have any time to exercise on a regular basis, you should try to sneak moments of activity into your schedule.

Whenever possible, you should take the stairs instead of the elevator, as little things like that will do wonders for your body.

You should also park your car around the corner and walk that extra block or two to get to your destination. As you may know, there are many small things you can add to increase the activity in your life. Your overall goal here is to have a healthy and well balanced life – with plenty of sleep.
