8 Fitness Myths We Need To Stop Listening To

4. Always Workout During The Day Time, Never At Night.

Don’t listen to this. Your body will benefit from exercise no matter what time of day you do it. If you are exercising at night, you may want to give yourself extra time to unwind before hopping into bed post-workout, that is all.

A 2013 National Sleep Foundation study essentially busts the myth that vigorous exercise impacts sleep quality. However, if you are a problem sleeper, and your workout falls within an hour or two before bedtime, you can experiment with working out earlier in the day. If sleep improves, problem solved. If not, then you can probably conclude that exercise isn’t causing the issue.

The important thing to remember is that exercise generally improves a person’s overall sleep cycle. If night is your only option, it’s much better than nothing.
