ADHD, Exercise, and Sleep

Last week Jennifer Koretsky wrote the blog entry: 3 Tips to Restful Sleep. She gave some tips and also asked readers for their tips.

Here’s my tip:

I’ve been exercising regularly during 2009 and was recently encouraged to increase my exercise. Over the past couple of week I’ve been exercising a lot more than usual. Exercise is helping me fall asleep easier, sleep better, and wake up easier too.

    I have had almost the exact same experience with exercise and my sleep levels and ability to concentrate.

    I have had similar results with exercise putting my sleep schedule back on track and upping my concentration levels.

    Exercise is also a remedy. It soothes the restless mind.

    Physical fitness is used in two close meanings: general fitness (a state of health and well-being) and specific fitness (a task-oriented definition based on the ability to perform specific aspects of sports or occupations).

    Physical fitness is the functioning of the heart, blood vessels, lungs, and muscles at optimum efficiency. In previous years, fitness was defined as the capacity to carry out the day’s activities without undue fatigue. Automation increased leisure time, and changes in lifestyles following the industrial revolution meant this criterion was no longer sufficient. Optimum efficiency is the key. Physical fitness is now defined as the body’s ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to be healthy, to resist hypokinetic diseases, and to meet emergency situations. Fitness can also be divided into five categories: aerobic fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition.
