10 Proven Ways How Exercise Can Boost Your Happiness

3. Exercise improves quality of sleep

Is it possible to fall asleep faster and wake up more rested? Exercise improves both sleep quality and sleep duration. Exercise lifts your mood and reduces stress, allowing you to clear your mind and fall asleep sooner. Regular, scheduled exercise strengthens your circadian rhythms, and promotes daytime alertness and sleepiness at night.[3]

In a nutshell: To help you sleep, exercise earlier in the day as intense exercise just before bedtime can interfere with your sleep. If you exercise earlier in the day, it can help improve your alertness when you need it most and promote better sleep at night.
