In the words of sleep scientist, and best selling author, Matthew Walker; “sleep is your superpower.”And we couldn’t agree more. No matter what your profession, we can all benefit from making sleep a fundamental part of our game plan. Any athlete will tell you that there is no performance enhancer better than quality sleep. You get this part right, and the benefits go far beyond just physical performance. Great sleep, on a regular basis, is key to psychological wellbeing, decision making, relationships, productivity, life satisfaction, vitality, and overall well-being.
Here are a few facts from different sleep surveys we’ve studied to put this in context for you:
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia, hypersomnia, nacrolepsy, and parasomnia can take a serious toll on your mental and physical health, including your mood, energy, and ability to handle stress. Ignoring sleep problems and disorders can lead to weight gain, car accidents, impaired job performance, memory problems, and strained relationships. If you want to feel your best, stay healthy, and perform up to your potential, quality sleep is a necessity, not a luxury. Sleep keeps us mentally fit and gives us the internal strength we need to #AwakenTheChampion in our everyday life.
So whether you’re a teacher struggling to keep up with grading papers, or a student juggling assignments and coursework; whether you’re an athlete trying to up your stamina or a doctor working crazy shifts; whether you’re an Entrepreneur burning the midnight oil to keep afloat or an IT professional working long hours to meet deadlines – sleep like a champion – it will lift your productivity and your mood, lower your stress, stimulate your brain and improve memory and learning.
