Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Average sleeping time gets shorter every year. We predict an increase in insomnia and other sleep disorders. Physical activity may prevent insomnia, as a non-drug alternative. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between physical exercise habits and sleep patterns. Methods:<\b>
In total, 2000 subjects were randomly selected from those over 20 years of age living in a large housing complex. The following information regarding exercise habits was gathered via questionnaire: do you regularly exercise more than 3 times per week and more than 20 minutes each time? The questions asked about these five items regarding sleep condition: difficulty initiating sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, early morning awakening, satisfaction with sleeping time, and satisfaction with overall sleep quality. To examine the association between regular exercise as the independent variable and status of sleep (5 items) as the dependent variable, odds ratios (ORs) and 95% CIs were calculated using multilevel logistic regression analysis (Covariate; age, smoking, drinking and medication). Results:<\b>
Of 787 subjects (collection rate 39%, male n= 307, mean age 66 years, female n=480, 65 years), 38.3% of males and 31.8% of females exercised regularly. Odds ratio (95%CI) of sleep loss was 2.1(1.3-3.4) in males. Odds ratios of difficulty initiating sleep and quality of overall sleep complaints were 1.8 (1.2-2.9) and 1.6 (1.1-2.5), respectively, in females. Conclusion:<\b>
These results suggest that exercise may be effective in producing sound sleep. We must conduct a data longitudinal study to confirm the relationship between regular exercise and sleep.
