As the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) points out, any amount of movement may improve sleep, although younger people usually require more exercise than older people to see the same benefits.
“Usually, exercise in the afternoon or early evening helps with sleep,” explains the NSF.
It adds: “Exercise done just before sleep will increase stress hormones, which can worsen sleep problems.”
