While some people may say that sleep is for the weak, here at TB12 we say that sleep is for the strong. We understand how significant sleep is for both performance and recovery. If you want to perform your best, recovery is key so improving your sleep hygiene is an important step to reaching your goals!
Over one third of Americans get less than 7 hours of sleep a night, which can have detrimental effects on health and overall wellness. Even a few nights of poor sleep can impact your day-to-day functioning and long-term sleep issues are associated with obesity, high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. As a result, it is key to establish a sleep routine for yourself and stick to it. The amount of sleep you need per night is dependent on your age, activity level, and overall lifestyle, but generally we recommend aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
