with 2 comments

A new study by Northwestern Medicine has found that middle aged and older individuals can improve their sleep significantly by engaging in regular aerobic exercise.  Sleep patterns change dramatically with advancing age, with over half of all people in this age bracket reporting some form of sleep deprivation or insomnia.  Women are also more likely to be affected than their male partners.

The aerobic exercise group reported a dramatic improvement in their quality of sleep, specifically the duration of sleep – as well as improvements in mood and vitality.

Every body should be encouraged to exercise not just senior citizens, I am convinced that it helps everybody’s sleep patterns. Read the whole article here: Exercise and get some shut eye
