Physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your body, having benefits that go beyond looking good. Movement and sleep are strongly connected, with more movement you can get better sleep within weeks. In this article, we will be describing some small things you can do before bedtime to improve the quality of your sleep, leaving you feeling happier and healthier.
When we say movement, we don’t mean a full marathon run or a long session of weightlifting. While those things are great for your body, doing those heavy impact exercises two hours before bed can negatively impact your sleep, leading to a more awake feeling.
Easier movements like walks, yoga,stretching and meditation are great things to add to your nightly routine. These make you feel calm, relaxed, and mindful, which is a great mindset to be in before going to sleep. These movements can easily relieve muscle tension you built up over the day, and you won't get up feeling sore from the day before. If you can, try to ensure the environment you are in is comfortable, with calming lighting, music, and a quiet space.
