A study, led by UArizona professor Dr. Alicia Allen, looked at the relationship between physical activity, sleep quality, and smoking behavior in 32 smokers who intended to quit. In the end, the researchers found that participants who reported poorer sleep quality also tended to report more adverse levels of smoking-related symptoms. In addition, participants who increased their level of physical activity tended to see improvements in their sleep quality.
