Sleep Cures from Mother Nature
Exercise Early in the Evening
Though it's known that exercising within three hours of bedtime can leave you too wired to slumber soundly, a recent study by Dr. Zee finds a place for evening workouts. Exercising at least three times a week around 5 to 7 p.m. helped people improve their sleep. It may be that working out then creates a pleasant tiredness that helps the body prepare for sleep. Or it could be that exercise helps women unwind after work or a hectic day at home with the kids and they feel less stressed when they curl up under the covers.
