Moderate aerobic exercise helps us fall into a deeper sleep faster and improves blood flow to the brain, building the neural network and improving cognitive abilities.
Exercise causes the brain to release endorphins, a neurotransmitter that makes you feel happy. As a result, working out for thirty to fifty minutes a day in the morning improves focus and able to handle stress better.
Aerobic exercise for 150 minutes a week reduces cognitive decline and improves neuronal function in Alzheimer’s patients, likely because the brain releases serotonin, another neurotransmitter that improves neural connections.
Exercise also increases total sleep time, slow wave (deep) sleep, and REM sleep—all of which support the sleep restoration process. Some of the other general health benefits of exercise are a reduced risk of stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and hypertension.
