exercise and sleepSpending 30 minutes at the fitness centre won't translate into better sleep that night, a new study suggests. This finding has debunked the notion ‘fitness regimen helps one sleep better’, for which exercise has been commonly prescribed for insomnia.

The study appeared in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.
