You’ve tried it all. Meditation, breathing practice, therapy, cuddling a dog or other animal before bedtime, and you still struggle to fall or stay asleep.

But have you tried increasing your daily physical activity?

I don’t mean just doing more workouts (although that can help too). But by going for walks, bike rides, lunchtime strolls around the block, gardening or chasing the kids (ideally yours).

Pretty much any activity that increases the energy you burn throughout the day. And especially the activities that get you out of the house and into the great outdoors.

A well-moved body often leads to a more peaceful sleep.
