Researchers after a recent study have claimed that people who spend at least 150 minutes per week in physical activity experience better sleep at night than people who do not spend sufficient active time.
Researchers studied more than 2600 men and women for the research. They found that among those 18 to 85 years people who spent 150 minutes in exercise reported to have better sleep at night and felt less sleepy throughout the day in comparison with those who did not spend time in enough physical activity. The first group reported 65 per cent better sleeping experience than the later group.
The study has also emphasized that not doing enough physical exercise is related to many health problems. Almost 35 to 40 per cent of American population experience lack of sleep at night and there after they spend the whole day in drowsiness.
One of the study authors Brad Cardinal who is also a professor of exercise science at Oregon State University has mentioned that they were actually working on finding out the relation of proper exercise with cardiovascular diseases. But in addition they discovered that sufficient exercise also affects other health factors.
People who suffer from sleeplessness at night often become excessive dependent on sleeping pills and that in turn generate many serious health problems. After the findings researchers have proposed that regular physical activity can be a key to dart sleeplessness at night and also those problems, grew up from the consumption of sleeping pills.
Moreover, the study has also showed that people who maintained the regularity of physical exercise every day suffer from having leg cramps while sleeping 68 per cent less than the other group of non or irregular exercise doers. The first group also reported to experience 45 per cent reduced difficulty in concentrating while tired than the other group.
The lead author of the study Paul Loprinzi has mentioned that it is for the first time that a study has found out links between proper exercise and sleeping at night.
The study was appeared in a journal named Mental Health and Physical Activity.
