Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- If you haven’t been sleeping well, get moving. A survey by the National Sleep Foundation shows just 10 minutes of exercise a day can improve the quality of your sleep and the move vigorous you work out, the better you’ll sleep.
More than a thousand people were questioned about their sleep in a nationwide survey.
More than 75 percent of those surveyed who described themselves as exercisers said they slept well, compared to just over half of the people who said they didn’t exercise.
Very active people reported fewer sleep problems, dozed off quicker and needed less shut eye per night to function at their best during the day.
Sitting more than eight hours daily also had a negative impact on sleep, according to the poll.
