Exercise and Sleep

The Journal of the American Medical Association reports a study of men and women between 50 and 76 years of age with moderate sleep complaints.

These people were put through an exercise program consisting of low impact aerobics and brisk walking 4 days a week for 16 weeks.

Those individuals who completed the exercise program were able to get to sleep faster and were able to sleep an hour longer than those who did not do their exercises.

Another of the many examples of the benefits of exercise.
