At a time when money is keeping worried people up at night, finding ways to get quality rest is a challenge for more people than before the economy was a constant stress. Efficient solutions are important for busy gals like us, and this two-in-one formula is a welcome fix: exercise can help you battle the money-induced stress and get you to sleep through the night.
A recent study involving insomniac patients in Brazil found that moderate cardio exercise has a calming affect on anxiety and improves sleep quality, both in the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and total sleep time. It is noteworthy that the patients participated in moderate, not heavy, aerobic exercise.
Sleep gives us energy for the day, improves mental clarity, and allows us to get through the day with wide-open eyes and diminished dark circles. If exercise can help us achieve a good night's rest, it's just another reason to get moving!
