And the Magic Bullet for Better Sleep Is…

If you want to improve your sleep – get moving! In a poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation – the results were compelling – exercise is fantastic for sleep. Highlights from this evaluation included the following:

  • 75% of the exercisers reported very good or fairly good sleep quality vs. 56% in non-exercisers.
  • Vigorous exercisers had the best overall sleep quality with the least insomnia-related issues.
  • Those sitting less than eight hours a day were twice as likely to report very good sleep quality vs. those sitting more than eight hours a day.
  • Non-exercisers were more than three times as likely to report sleep apnea symptoms as vigorous exercisers and about twice as likely to report excessive daytime sleepiness.
