Solution for better sleep: exercise, at any time of day

A survey released last week by the National Sleep Foundation makes the case for exercising at any time of the day or night to improve sleep. The survey of 1,000 adults between the ages of 23 and 60 found that vigorous exercisers (running, biking, swimming) were almost twice as likely as sedentary people to report that they had a good night’s sleep every night or almost every night during the previous week. It didn’t matter whether the survey respondents exercised close to bedtime or first thing in the morning.
