Moving Your Way to a Good Night's Rest

Have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or not feeling rested when you wake up? You are not alone; 50 to 70 million Americans report at least mild sleep complaints every year, and these problems often get worse with age. Participants will learn about a number of easy-to-adopt strategies that can be effective at improving sleep quality. Using evidence from the latest published studies on the topic of exercise and sleep, we will discuss how exercise may positively impact your sleep and what recommendations regarding frequency, type, intensity, and duration of exercise can be given to maximize the impact of your exercise on sleep.
Instructor: Matthew P. Buman, PhD, is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, Stanford University School of Medicine. He has expertise in behavioral science for sleep, physical activity, and aging.
