Tips from RockIt Mom:

Exercises to Sleep Better, Week of March 18, 2010

Posted on 14. Mar, 2010 in Exercises

Exercise to Combat Sleeplessness

Those who lead more sedentary lives are likely to be poor sleepers. The lack of physical activity can contribute to lack of sound sleep by inhibiting the daily rise and fall of the body-temperature rhythm.  As a result, many people get caught in a cycle of insomnia, reduced energy and physical activity, and worsened insomnia.

Exercise improves sleep by producing a significant rise in body temperature, followed by a compensatory drop a few hours later.
