The study showed that people who did not exercise had worse sleep, and those who had regular long-term exercise over a 16-week period were able to get more snooze time than those who didn’t sustain the physical activity. After the 16-week period, women who exercised were sleeping an extra 46 minutes a night for a total of 6 hours and 40 minutes. Before the study, they were averaging 5 hours and 54 minutes. The National Sleep Foundation’s 2013 Sleep in America poll showed that Americans get about 6 hours and 51 minutes of sleep a night. Baron said she was interested in the subject after her patients with insomnia kept reporting that they still couldn’t sleep even though they were exhausted from working out. “Sleeping poorly doesn’t change your aerobic capacity, but it changes people’s perception of their exertion,” Baron said.

Agein Corporation, a Leading Anti-Aging Company, Comments on Princeton University Study That Shows Exercise Can Calm Anxiety
“It has all the facilities of a typical small town, and that is the type of environment we’ll be operating in after a disaster strikes. The scenario is set in an American city where there has been a nuclear detonation, and these units are responding to that disaster.” “This (the MUTC) looks like the very first episode of the TV series ‘The Walking Dead’ with all of the signs hanging, fires blazing and the appearance of absolute desertion,” said Sgt. Nicholas Erridge, a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear, or CBRN, specialist from Portage, Ohio. He serves with the 51st Civil Support Team, or CST, Michigan National Guard, Joint Force Headquarters, out of Battle Creek, Mich. “This is a unique, realistic training environment.” Taking advantage of the unique training environment are the CST units, which have specific missions they train for in order to prepare them for a real-world, American catastrophe.

Exercise Trains Troops for Nuclear Disaster
In fact, even though exercise creates vibrant new brain cells, our brains know to shut them down when they shouldnt be in action. This new research is extremely important in helping us understand how the brain regulates anxious behavior and how exercise can calm anxiety, Foreman adds. Its also important to note that the study looked at long-term training responses. The subjects were monitored 24 hours after running, when they could not benefit from the short-term calming effect from exercise. This proves that the brain of the subject that exercised is remodeled to better deal with stress than sedentary ones are, Foreman concludes.
