According to the Time Magazine Science of Sleep, we mortals have many things in common: we need to eat; we all need shelter from the elements and safety from harm; and we all need Sleep. Traditional sports and professional environments are changing to improve sleep habits and at the same time enhance performance. Charles Czeisler, known as the “sleep doctor” around the NBA recommends naps before games or shifts and 7-9 hours each night. He also stresses that sleep after an event or lesson is most important and if this does not happen one never learns. Sleep helps build long-term memories, and fully incorporating the day’s lessons requires a full sleep. Without the last 2 hours of the night, important steps in integrating the new memories are missing. Sleep like a well rested PRO tonight! Sweet Dreams!
