On an everyday note to all….when you exercise on a daily basis you will fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. Those suffering from sleep apnea may be less motivated to diet or exercise – daytime sleepiness lowers their energy levels and makes it difficult to commit to an exercise and/or diet.
Though research shows that exercise is certainly good for one’s body and health, properly timing exercise is necessary to maximize the beneficial effects. For example, a good workout can make you more alert, speed up your metabolism and energize you for the day ahead, but exercise right before bedtime can lead to a poor night’s sleep. So exercising in the afternoon at least 3 hours
before bed is the optimum time to work out.
An exercise analysis on sleep apnea patients found that exercise improved their time in deep and quality sleep, daytime sleepiness and decreased fatigue. Participants also reported that exercise sharpened their thinking and improved other aspects of daytime functioning.
