Favourite paragraph:

Exercise also helps with sleep, and your physiotherapist can work with you to develop a program to increase your activity.

For a restful night and a stress free day you could also try a few relaxation exercises as well. This is highly recommended if you wake up during the night and can’t get back to sleep.
