Exercise and sleep

Most of us think that exercise and sleep have nothing to do with each other. On the contrary, although sleep is the opposite of exercise it plays a vital role in improving your health. In fact if you are sleep deprived you will more than likely experience changes in some of the dimensions of health.

So what does this have to do with exercise? People who exercise tend to have better sleeping habits, better sleeping habits result in improved health!

Try increasing your intensity of exercise as you progress in your program. As your intensity increases you will find you will sleep better. With that said, try not to exercise right before you go to bed because the acute effects of exercise will actually keep you awake.

Exercise well = sleep well

Happy dreaming!
