HOW EXERCISE AFFECTS YOUR BODY TEMPERATURE RHYTHM
If you want to instantly increase the quality of your sleep, then star an exercise program today, if you don’t exercise already. Exercise helps you sleep better in a number of ways, I’m not even going to mention all the other health benefits! :
� Exercise will raise your body temperature rhythm, and make your body temperature �peak� at a higher level. This will increase your energy levels throughout the day, you will feel more alive, awake and highly motivated.
� As your body temperature levels reach at a higher level, temperature of body will also drop more deeper and easily. This will allow you to sleep deeply, without any interruptions.
� Daily exercise without even given a break in a week will prevent your body temperature rhythm from �flat-lining�, which will allow you to sleep deeply even if you have had a stressful day, or could not workout on one particular day.
� Exercise delays the body temperature �drop� in the evening, allowing you to stay awake and alert longer without feeling drowsy and tired.
� Exercise is also a great relief of stress, tension, anxiety, depression, insomnia and various mental disease which as you will later find out, is a major cause of sleeping disorders.
If you do not exercise yet, GET A MOVE ON IT! and start now. The best time to exercise is in the morning, as this will promote a quick temperature rise. However, avoid exercise 3 hours prior to going to sleep, as your body temperature will probably still be on the rise, and you may find falling asleep / sleeping deeply more difficult.
If you don’t exercise, I’m not suggesting you get up off your butt right now, get a membership at your local gym or join any fitness club and begin a full scale work out program. You can do that only if you really want to. However, recent study shows that just moderate exercise during the day has many health benefits. If you can not motivate yourself to start exercising regularly, you could find a less intensive physical activity that you still enjoy, like walking biking, briskly, rollerblading, these will still have a substantial effect at raising your body temperature.
My final point about this would be: What’s the Point of Trying to Rejuvenate your Body, and Increasing the quality of your sleep, if You’re not going to USE YOUR BODY?
Body Temperature Rhythm & Exercise
The fastest way to increase the quality of sleep is to get into a exercise regimen, if you already do not do so. Exercise helps the quality of sleep in numerous ways, not to mention the other health benefits it has on your body.
� Regular Exercise increases your body temperature rhythm, and makes your body peak at a higher level. The result is that you will have a better energy level throughout the day feeling more motivated, alive and positive.
� Since your body peaks at a higher level, the temperature of your body will also drop deeper and faster, thus facilitating uninterrupted and deep sleep.
� Flat lining of your body temperature rhythm is prevented by doing daily workout, helping you to sleep better on stressful/hectic days and even on days when do not exercise..
� Daily exercise delays the evening temperature drop allowing you to stay awake and alert for a longer period of time.
� Exercise also relieves stress, tension, insomnia, anxiety, depression which is a major cause of sleeping disorders.
If exercise not already a part of your daily routine, it�s not too late to start now. The best time to exercise is early in the morning as it will facilitate a quick temperature rise. Avoid exercising 4-5 hrs before your sleeping time, because by that time your body temperature will still be on the rising trend, rendering the process of falling asleep more difficult.
Exercise need not be really strenuous. When I say begin exercise, I do not mean that you should go join a gym, fitness club or embark upon a full time workout program. Moderate exercise is best for your best for your body as it is not harmful and give more benefit. If you are not in favor of monotonous exercise, you can choose an equally demanding physical activity like walking, swimming, cycling, skating etc.. These will have the same effect on raising body temperature.
