Can't sleep after evening Zumba
4

Lealea1991 · 17/09/2021 05:55

So I do Zumba in the evening because my partner works long hours and can only get home from 7pm and stay with little one. I can never sleep after Zumba. I've tried everything, having a long bath after, watching something, listening to deep sleep music, keeping room dark and right temperature, taking over that counter sleep aids. The next day I am exhausted after a whole night of tossing and turning trying to sleep. Unless I can find a way to sleep after I'm going to have to stop going. Anyone know a way I can get a restful nights sleep after?

I find it hard to sleep after late night exercise too.

Make sure you're hydrated and rehrydate enough after the class. Also foods with tryptophan are supposed to help you sleep - milk, turkey, etc.

Maybe stay up much later and settle for just a few hours, such as 1am to morning.
Reading a book is better for helping me sleep than phone or Tv.

Maybe drop the Zumba and do some hard exercise that tires you out more, physically? I'm the same - if I've had a bit of a dance or something, I'm wired and can't sleep, but after a hard run I'm zonked out.
