A recent study out of Northwestern University affirms the long-held notion that exercise improves sleeping patterns, but finds that for insomniacs, it takes four months of exercise for sleep improvements to actually kick in. We'll speak with a lead author of the study about the latest research on exercise and insomnia.

Guests:

Dr. Kelly Glazer Baron, assistant professor of neurology and director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine; and lead author of the study
