Exercise: Sleep’s Best Friend

Want to sleep better? Who doesn’t? It’s funny how our ancestors never had trouble sleeping.  People used to walk places, work in the fields, do manual labor… Now we have machines to do all that and save us time, yet many people still say they don’t have time to exercise.

Research shows that even small increases in exercise, like a daily half-hour walk, can improve your sleep and your health.  The one caveat to this is that you should not exercise close to your bed time.  That will actually make it difficult to wind down and to fall asleep.

So if you are not a regular exerciser, start on the road to improving your sleep and your health with a daily walk.

Another thing that helps improve sleep is a comfortable mattress.  Independent research shows that the traditional innerspring mattress has the lowest ratings for comfort of all mattresses.  Want to learn more about your specialty mattress options?  Check out our buyer’s guides for latex mattresses, air beds, adjustable beds, and memory foam mattresses.
