Exercise the difference maker

If you’re either struggling with your sleep patterns or feeling low, then there could be a brilliant activity to partake in to get you feeling yourself once more. Regular exercise has been proven to boost mood, increase energy levels and improve quality of sleep come the evening time. Just twenty minutes each day can aid your health and your rest massively – and a better sleep means a better you.

Here are the top benefits of regular exercise:

1. Boosted mood

Regular exercise has been proven to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and stress. It also boosts your mood by increasing your serotonin levels which work to make us feel happy. Exercise can also produce endorphins, hormones which can create feelings of happiness and block pain receptors!

2. Great sleep

Exercise can help you to sleep better. When we exercise, our body temperature rises, and it is believed that the then subsequent drop in temperature when we stop can be a great way to ease our bodies into rest. You can also recreate this process by having a hot bath before bed! Just 150 minutes of exercise a week can increase your sleep quality by 65 per cent!.

3. Strong bones and muscles

Exercise is vital for maintaining strong muscles and bones. A good sleep and regular exercise for young people can also help to improve bone density, which can actually help to prevent osteoporosis in later life.

4. An increase in energy

Although exercise can be great for making us sleep, it can also give us a boost in energy levels! Although the thought of exercise in the morning can be a painful one, getting up and moving early in the day can set you up for an active lifestyle, boost your mood, get oxygen to your brain and get your blood pumping. Exercise can actually help to relieve fatigue.

5. Aids brain health and memory

Got a job interview? Maybe your driving test is coming up? Pack in a few exercises before heading out the door and you will guarantee yourself a boost in brain ability and function. Exercise can also be great for improving memory as it essentially stimulates hormone growth which leads to an increase in brain cells. Couple a work out with a great night sleep and you’re setting yourself up for a good day and a better life.

Despite the vast majority of people being unable to remember what they dreamt the night before, we actually dream for two hours each night, usually as we enter into the ‘Rapid Eye Movement’ form of sleep, usually referred to as (REM).
