Inadequate sleep can jeopardize your health in various ways. It can increase your weight, by messing up the production of the appetite regulating hormones leptin and ghrelin. Sleep deficiency can also disturb the body’s regulation of blood sugar, which is known to increase risk the risk for getting diabetes.

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.

Additionally, the study also stated that people who didn’t exercise are more likely to suffer from symptoms of sleep apnea, a sickness that causes one to stop breathing occasionally whilst sleeping. Furthermore, it is also linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular ailments and stroke. Another fascinating discovery was that individuals who worked out near bedtime found sleeping as easy as individuals who worked out during early hours of the day.
