Work up a sweat during the day for a sound night’s sleep

Work up a sweat during the day for a sound night’s sleep Did you know that working up a sweat during the day can affect how well you sleep at night?

If you’re having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep at night, you may not be getting enough exercise, especially if you have an office job and are spending up to eight hours a day sitting down.

There’s nothing worse than feeling tried and drained throughout the day and then struggle to get to sleep at night!

A brisk walk may be an easy way to improve your chances of catching a few zzzz’s later on. Recruit a friend to join you, or listen to your favourite music to make the process fun and easier to stick to. If you’re going in the morning, prepare your workout gear the night before so that when your alarm goes off, you can throw on your sneakers and run out the door!

Insufficient sleep threatens our health by contributing to chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

Even if you are inactive, adding a 10 min walk everyday could improve your likelihood of a good night’s sleep.
