Exercising, at any time of day, calls for a longer and deeper sleep.
Boston.com reported that a survey of one thousand adults who pushed for an intense workout were two times more likely to have a better night’s sleep.
The time of day that they exercised didn’t matter.
Those who sit for more than eight hours a day had a tough time when it came to getting some shut eye. On the other hand, those who were active found it easier to fall asleep and also were more likely to have an energetic, productive day the following day, as stated by Reuters.
“We found that exercise and great sleep go together, hand in hand,” said researcher Max Hirshkowitz, “We also found a step-wise increase in how vigorous the quality is, in terms of how much you exercise. So if you say you exercise a lot, we found better sleep quality. For people who don’t exercise at all we found more sleep problems.”
