Run Longer, Sleep Better


A good workout can elevate your performance in bed: The more calories you burn while awake, the sounder you may sleep. In a Dutch study, people who torched 2,500 calories a day spent more time in bed sleeping (not just lying awake) than those who burned 1,500. If you sap your energy stores during the day, you need to replenish them at rest, which is associated with better sleep efficiency, says researcher Dick Thijssen PhD. Try evening exercise: The spike in body temperature may help initiate sleep.
