‘Many of today’s office workers are sedentary for most of the day and aren’t doing enough physical activity, which can affect our ability to get to sleep,’ Michael says. ‘If you’re feeling sluggish throughout the day, I’d recommend working out in the early evening,’ Michael recommends. So, a post-work session is the prime time for the best sleep, but why? ‘Exercising at this time allows our body enough time to wind down, but it’s close enough to bedtime to tire us out and send us into a deeper sleep quicker,’ Michael explains.
Michael’s top tip: If you work from home, or sit in an office all day, try cardio workouts. They require high levels of intense energy, so will increase your mobility and tire you quicker. Too much daytime sleep could indicate that you’re suffering from a sleep disorder.
