Exercise and sleep are both important for staying healthy. Getting a good night of sleep can help you achieve your goal during your workout session the next day especially in the morning. But some workouts can get in the way of sleep depending on what time you do them.
The thinking is that if you exercise too close to bedtime, your body is heated up and you get an adrenaline rush that could make it hard to sleep soon afterwards. Even though your body and muscles are tired, you're not sleepy. One recent study finds that evening exercise can help some folks fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply?
Dr. Rafael Pelayo at Stanford Sleep Medicine Center says the sweet spot for getting in an evening workout and still getting the best sleep possible is doing at least 3 hours before you go to bed. If you're doing more intense workouts, he suggests that early evening exercise is the best.
