Sleep is a critical part of the recovery process and one of the lifestyle choices we encourage clients to focus on here at TB12. Whether you’re an athlete or just trying to feel your best, sleep quality can have a significant impact on your attention, reaction time, and your overall performance. It’s no surprise that following a late night or after a night of interrupted sleep, we don’t feel our best the next day. We may feel fatigued or irritable, and may find our physical performance dipping despite being in great shape.
Although it may not look like much is going on while we sleep, your body is actively recovering during the night so that you can perform and feel your best the next day. Our level of cognitive performance is directly correlated to our quality of sleep and affects not only our motor skill capabilities, but our ability to learn, think critically, and problem solve in any scenario we may find ourselves in.
