Washington: Exercise can help you get a good night sleep, the results of the National Sleep Foundation`s 2013 Sleep in America poll have suggested.Self-described exercisers report better sleep than self-described non-exercisers even though they say they sleep the same amount each night (6 hours and 51 minutes, average on weeknights), according to the poll. "Exercise is great for sleep. For the millions of people who want better sleep, exercise may help," said David Cloud, CEO of the National Sleep Foundation (NSF).Vigorous, moderate and light exercisers are significantly more likely to say "I had a good night`s sleep" every night or almost every night on work nights than non-exercisers. Also, more than three-fourths of exercisers say their sleep quality was very good or fairly good in the past two weeks, compared to slightly more than one-half of non-exercisers."If you are inactive, adding a 10 minute walk every day could improve your likelihood of a good night`s sleep," said Max Hirshkowitz, PhD, poll task force chair.
