Yeah, it keeps us fit, but a new study suggests that exercise also helps our bodies recognize when to move and when to relax—or in other words, how to find our ideal ‘natural rhythms'. According to researchers, physical activity prompts its own circadian rhythm in the body. What’s more, the researchers determined that exercise may help these circadian rhythms stay strong and stable even as we age as opposed to what typically happens: People become less mobile during the day and more restless at night as their movement patterns becoming more random and erratic.
