(KTVI) – Walking 10 minutes a day and changing your diet can help lead to weight loss and lead to a better night’s sleep.

Dr. Joseph Ojile with the Clayton Sleep Institute talked about two new studies regarding diet and exercise.

Findings suggests:
1. Vigorous, moderate and light*exercisers are significantly more likely to say “I had a good night’s sleep” every night or almost every night on work nights than non-exercisers.

2. Individuals who ate the widest array of nutrients also had the healthiest sleep patterns, logging between seven and eight hours of rest each night.

3. Lack of iron, calcium, and magnesium, among other nutrients, can impair sleep quality.
