There is a school of thought that exercising before bed will make it hard to fall asleep, but the truth is, that depends on the type of exercise you're doing.

Lifting weights or running will raise the heart rate and release adrenaline into your system, keeping you stimulated after your workout.

Stretching and breathing exercises, on the other hand, will relax the body and mind, according to fitness guru Charlotte Singmin.

In an episode of "2 Minutes To Transform," Singmin shares three bedtime exercises that will help you have a more refreshing sleep. Watch the video above to learn more.
