Exercise Can Improve Sleep Quality Even When You Don’t Perceive a Difference

Researchers from the University of Tsukuba find that vigorous exercise causes imperceptible improvements in sleep quality

Tsukuba, Japan—Physical exercise has long been prescribed as a way to improve the quality of sleep. But now, researchers from Japan have found that even when exercise causes objectively measured changes in sleep quality, these changes may not be subjectively perceptible.

In a study published this month in Scientific Reports, researchers from the University of Tsukuba have revealed that vigorous exercise was able to modulate various sleep parameters associated with improved sleep, without affecting subjective reports regarding sleep quality.
