Studies indicate that exercising regularly is great not only for your waistline but is also beneficial for your heart. What’s more is that exercise will help you sleep better too. Studies discovered that people who engaged in intense physical activity were also never had problems with waking up too early and not being able to go back to sleep again. In contrast, half of the individuals from the study that didn’t work out complained to have trouble sleeping at night.
