Home / Exercise to improve sleep


  • Including regular exercise in your daily routine may help you sleep better and reduce fatigue, especially if you exercise several hours before going to bed.
  • Getting enough of the right kind of exercise can also help you stay sharp and focused.
  • Even if you have difficulty standing or walking, you can still exercise by following routines designed to be done while sitting in a chair (including chair-based yoga).
  • A physical or occupational therapist can help design an exercise plan that works for you. It’s also a good idea to talk with your doctor about your exercise program to make sure it is safe for you.
  • Remember to take breaks and pace yourself so you don’t overdo or get overheated.
