Hit the Trail for Better ZZZs

Posted 12/02/09 by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy in Health and Wellness

Wear yourself out during the day, sleep better at night, right? Most people have probably long assumed this connection, but a new study has made the extent of the correlation between exercise and sleep clearer than ever. Just published in The New York Times, the study found extensive evidence that increased physical activity during the day improves both how quickly you'll fall asleep at night and how long you'll sleep. So if you're shooting for a sound night of rest, you can't go wrong adding more trail time into your daily routine! Find a great pathway near you at TrailLink.com, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's free trail-finder website and the most robust source of online maps, descriptions, photos, user reviews and more.
