An Active Day Leads to a Restful Night

Women in menopause who have hot flashes or night sweats often struggle to get a good night’s rest. A study of 50 women who regularly had menopause symptoms found that a hard day’s work can improve the quality and duration of sleep. The participants kept diaries of their activities for four days and wore sleep monitors that detected if they woke up at night. On nights after a day of light cleaning, cooking, or leisure-time physical activity, women slept more soundly than on nights following less activity. This research suggests that even light physical activity can help menopausal women get much-needed shut-eye.
